UPenn A wise man once said, "You aren't born successful. You have to work hard, have the right mindset and the right morals and only then can you make success." Therefore, to truly become successful, we must imbibe in us the qualities that will help us to do so.

Regular Decision - I got waitlisted from BC and Carnegie Mellon. I got rejected from Georgetown and UPenn. Later, I got rejected from BC and CMU. These essays do not necessarily reflect what an admissions officer will be looking for, especially since I have added in essays of schools I did...
