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.
Growing up, my tongue was my worst enemy. To make normal sounds meant contorting it into seemingly foreign shapes, the effort of which often made my tongue weary. My R’s become W’s, my S’s slurred; when I became excited and spoke fast, I might as well have been speaking in another language. I loathed the incomprehensible sounds that came out of my mouth, but, looking back, it was not the words that flowed through my lips that...

Briefly elaborate on one of your extracurricular activities or work experiences.
HOSA-Future Health Professionals remains and will continue to be most meaningful to me.

Something meaningful to you and why
“Hey Mom, where are you?” Midnight had come and gone, and the absence of the familiar rumble of the garage door opening beneath me heightened my worry. Her tired voice conveyed an affirmation of safety, but it wasn’t until the garage creaked open that my uneasiness dissipated. When I went down to greet her, however, she embraced me tightly; I had called just as exhaustion was about to overwhelm her while she was behind the wheel, and my short...
