College Application Essays

It's rough, it's tough, and it will kick your butt. Type one diabetes is what I am talking about. I have been a type one diabetic for nearly fourteen years. On September 19, 2000, my pancreas stopped producing a hormone called insulin. I was three. No, I didn't get it because I ate too much sugar. No, I can't just lose weight and have it go away. No, you can't prick your finger with my pricker. Yes, I can have sugar. Yes,...

Supplemental Essay: “Why us” school essay
255 Words
Seven hundred thirty seven miles from home. A twelve hour drive or a two hour flight. A city I have been in love with since I first read about it, and have fallen more in love with since adventuring there. A school that can take a passion and a love, and turn it into a career that lasts a lifetime. A school with a curriculum and resources that rival any other university. A school that uses the Nine Ways of...

The Virgin Queen, Good Queen Bess, or most commonly known, Queen Elizabeth I. A woman who reigned England for forty four years during the height of the English renaissance at the end of the 16th century. I would ask her about her apparent reluctance to serve as a ruler rather than merely the face of the monarchy. Since the 12th century, when the attempt by the first female monarch of England to claim the throne led to eighteen years of...

Supplemental Essay: Amusing anecdote
263 Words
It is the story of my life. I can't remember a time in my life that I wasn't immersed in some aspect of art. From the age of six when my grandmother's friend asked me to help illustrate her children's book to the age of eleven when I won a statewide award for a short story, I have been developing my artistry. Art is about exploring new horizons, putting oneself out there, being unafraid. Art inspired me to read the...

In the story of my life, I can't remember a time that I wasn't engulfed in some sort of art. I was an artist at the age of six when my grandmother's friend asked me to illustrate her children's book about pigs. I was an author at the age of eleven when I won an award for my short story. Ever since those moments, I have been striving to further develop my artistry. Even as a child, I wanted my...

Supplemental Essay: Using a metaphor
281 Words
Looking for Alaska by John Green The Tragedy Paper by Elizabeth LaBan The Book Thief by Markus Zusak Eleanor and Parks by Rainbow Rowell A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway All of these books had one common theme to me. They all tell stories of characters that are inherently flawed. They aren't portrayed as popular, or perfect, or anywhere close to the top of a social ladder. They are about every day people. These books influenced me to want...

Supplemental Essay: Strong beliefs/principles
144 Words
What outrages me the most is the bold faced bigotry that is occurring in our country right now. With the protests that began in Ferguson after there was no indictment of Darren Wilson, there has been a wild fire of protests that have occurred because of the police brutality that has been seen. The fact that people continue to support the brutality and defend it enrages me because studies have shown that police view black civilians as more aggressive, stronger,...

Supplemental Essay: Diversity statement
454 Words
I come from the south. I come from small towns, farms, and a lot of tractors. I come from "hey y'alls," picket fences, and families that have lived on the same land and attended the same schools for generations. I come from sweet tea, fried chicken, and sitting on the front porch with the family. Even though that is where I come from, it is not who I am. I am not a southern belle, content to live in the...
