“This is 42nd Street-Port Authority Bus Terminal. Transfer is available to the 1, 2, 3, 7, A, E, N, and Q trains. Step into the train. Stand clear of the closing doors. ” This is it. Pushing slightly against the crowd I disembark the n-line train. A few steps away from me the 1 train is pulling into the station, the train taking me to the Upper West Side—or so I think. Enveloped by a throng of people, I don’t even bother to check...

Supplemental Essay “Why us” school essay
592 Words
As an applicant to the Huntsman Program in International Studies and Business, deciding between the Wharton School and the College of Arts and Sciences is incredibly difficult. Working as the financial analyst for Urban Plan, a mixed-use redevelopment simulation for microeconomics class, I realized how passionately I feel about studying business.

Supplemental Essay “Why us” school essay
555 Words
As both a student and an individual, I have always considered myself a global citizen; an identity that permeates each of my particular interests. Whether I’m Skyping people from all over the world for work or studying international NGO’s in economics class, I am most inspired by subjects that defy the boundaries of one sole group of people. Deemed by some to be the “capital of the world,” New York City offers an incomparable opportunity to grow in...

Supplemental Essay Amusing anecdote
216 Words
“Non, je n’ai jamais froid,” (No, I’m never cold) I would always reply to my French host mother, imploring me to put on a jacket before stepping out into 12°C weather. Literalism aside, this motto serves as one of my core principles. I say that I am never cold, for I process discomfort differently than other people—I relish it. For as long as I can remember I have sought out circumstances that push me outside my comfort...
