College Application Essays

As a sophomore in global history, our teacher once showed us a documentary about Napoleon and his formation of the largest empire since the age of the Romans. All students were fascinated when they heard of the general’s conquest of almost an entire continent. Certainly, I, too, was impressed by the achievement of the little man in the blue and white uniform. A few minutes into the video, the narrator announced that Napoleon was 5´2´´. Right then, the whole class...











Supplemental Essay: “Why us” school essay
487 Words
Volunteering at an elder care center has not won me many dates-at least not with the women under sixty. It has, however, led me to an experience that has significantly influenced my career goal. During the summer before 10th grade, I began volunteering at a public retirement facility. I spent my time talking to a generation of people who have a lifetime of wisdom and experience to share. I particularly remember Evelyn, an old woman with smoky gray hair with...







Supplemental Essay: Amusing anecdote
628 Words
Pythagorean Theorem: a^2 + b^2 = c^2, where a and b are two legs of a right triangle and c is the hypotenuse, the longest side of the triangle. This 1-inch long, simple, yet eloquent equation contains a beauty, a magic that is unnoticeable at first glance; I have been introduced to this beauty by Dartmouth alumni Professor Strogatz at an Engineering Diversity Weekend program last September. As I finished my breakfast, I had the opportunity to join the campus tour or...

Conducted at the Queens College biochemistry lab, I collaborated with my mentor Dr. Mclachlan to develop a synthetic silk molecule to prevent contagious diseases. Although just in high school, I was able to participate in a momentous research, observing and shaping the growth of remedy that would save thousands of...







Supplemental Essay: Unique question posed by school
510 Words
The melody starts low, as a whirring sound of flute and oboe gently envelops the hall. Slowly, the timpani and the bass drum lay out a blanket of solemn theme. Another theme of clarinet and trumpet then appears, complementing the previous, yet affirming its own identity with an energetic, new twist of the melody. My predilection for music can be associated to the thematic development in a concert band. Music has taught me to think creatively with its infinite possibilities....
