Creative personal story
Every child has heard it. "You have to clean your room because it's my room. You're just staying in it. You can't do what you want." Or after a fight with the parents they say "You're so selfish.

Supplemental Essay “Why us” school essay
350 Words
(I wrote this specifically for Johns Hopkins University, as they were the only place that asked for this) With a strong background in math and science, I was sure I wanted to go into engineering when I attended college. For right now I'm settled biomedical engineering or the like.

How I chose schools to apply to
194 Words
You should always choose some reach schools, likelies, and safety schools like any guidance counselor will tell you. I wanted to go into engineering and live in Georgia so Georgia Tech obviously made my list.
