School Specific Essays

Some students have a background, identity, interest, or talent that is so meaningful they believe their application would be incomplete without it. If this sounds like you, then please share your story.
I will never forget the rush of satisfaction and success as I broke through the tape of the finish line at the acclaimed Simplot Games in Pocatello, Idaho. After stumbling off the track, doubled over and panting, my relay teammates rushed toward me, grabbing my hands and pulling me up, shouting, “we won, we won!” I will never forget my heart sinking to my toes faster than I could ever sprint as I caught view of the big screen flashing ...

Supplemental Essay: Intellectual interest
251 Words
Stanford students possess an intellectual vitality. Reflect on an idea or experience that has been important to your intellectual development.
Cooking is an enjoyable way for me to be creative and innovative outside the classroom setting. As I became a competitive high school athlete, I noticed a direct correlation between the foods I ate and how I felt during performance. Once I learned the hard way not to underestimate the power of my lunch before a race, I became fascinated with fueling my body with food that would optimize my performance and mood. The idea that I had control over...

Supplemental Essay: Amusing anecdote
260 Words
Virtually all of Stanford’s undergraduates live on campus. Write a note to your future roommate that reveals something about you or that will help your roommate -- and us -- know you better.
Dear Future Roommate, I hope you like sticky notes, because our future dorm room will be covered in them. I am one of those uber-organized people. I use sticky notes for everything – lists, deadlines, bookmarks, important dates, quotes I want to remember, and most importantly, my goals. This is a habit I’ve picked up from playing sports, where I’ve learned that visualization is one of the crucial factors for success. Seeing a small pink sticky note on my...

Supplemental Essay: Strong beliefs/principles

What matters to you, and why?
I shake off the out-of-breath feeling and scribble my name and hometown on the summit register, surrounded by an indescribable and unobstructed view of the valley below. I’m totally exhausted but mostly content, with a turkey and cheese sandwich in hand that, as my grandfather used to say, wouldn’t taste very good in your kitchen at home, but tastes out-of-this-world at 14,000 feet. My day started at 6:00 a.m., eight miles earlier, but being on the summit always makes...

How I narrowed down my essay topics
278 Words
Put a lot of effort into supplemental essay prompts that are specific to a certain school. When working on an essay, I would take an idea and just word vomit until I hit the limit. This helped me put my ideas on the page. Next, I wrote the essay again, cutting out and adding parts as I saw fit. Sometimes I would tweak the essay's tone, or add a humorous anecdote when appropriate. After that, I'd redraft again, maybe rearranging the order of...
