I haven't played it in just as long, despite the fact that I love the song, the lyrics, and the band.

Supplemental Essay Unique question posed by school
502 Words

Supplemental Essay “Why us” school essay
539 Words
Describe the unique qualities that attract you to the specific undergraduate College or School (including preferred admission and dual degree programs) to which you are applying at the University of Michigan. How would that curriculum support your interests? At a sports management program over the summer, my professor showed us "how not to" and "how to" videos for interviewing for a sports management job.
