School Specific Essays

I’m in a dark hallway, walking towards someone. He’s walking toward me. As we approach, he looks up, arching his neck. I recognize his curious eyes, his poofy hair, his bushy eyebrows; I know this face, but I’m too embarrassed. I look away as we pass. He’s crushed. His face loses its innocent curiosity.

Supplemental Essay: “Why us” school essay
303 Words

In Chicago, I see Wisconsin hoodies, shirts, and hats all the time. There seem to be Badgers everywhere I go. So, when I started looking into colleges, the first school I wanted to visit was University of Madison-Wisconsin. It was a cold, but bright and sunny February day, and I quickly realized why UW is so popular. When you step onto the campus, you immediately feel at home. Everyone you pass smiles, and each smile makes you feel a little...
