College Application Essays

I haven't listened to the song Stubborn Love by The Lumineers in about a year now. It never made it to the radio, so I've never turned on my favorite station and heard that song. I haven't played it in just as long, despite the fact that I love the song, the lyrics, and the band. But I'm glad I haven't heard it because it reminds me of the few months when I prepared for my mother to never come...









Supplemental Essay: Unique question posed by school
502 Words
"Design an Academic Course" My ideal class focuses on ethical issues in sports.

Choose one of the communities to which you belong, and describe that community and your place within it." I turned to Aaron, the co-host of my sports radio show at Camp Winnebago, and said, "Could we interview Chris Berman?" We'd found a camp newspaper from the 1970s when he, now a famous ESPN analyst,...





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. The "how not to" video encompassed what most applicants said: they love fantasy sports, they're great...
