I survey the dumpster that I’m about to stage a pool party in, alongsi¬de the local pastor’s son who is wearing floaties and goggles. An employee of Metal Supply, Inc.— dressed as a lifeguard and holding two virgin margaritas— is operating a forklift. Suddenly, my head jerks to the side as I hear a rooster crow in the distance. Well this is convenient, I think to myself. I fire off a text message to team Pakistan: “If...

Supplemental Essay Amusing anecdote
258 Words
The clock strikes 2 am as the dragon atop the town's bank releases a burst of fire. I duck into the local tavern with some friends, feasting on stew, fried eggs, and toffee puddings. We take our food to-go and hop on the express train in order to get back to the castle in time for that night's tournament. We share neither geography, religion, ethnicity, income, cuisine, race, ideology, or intellectual heritage, which lends to a diversity that makes us unique....

Supplemental Essay Issue of personal significance
203 Words
The average white woman makes 77 cents per the average white man's dollar. Of course, the gap between these numbers increase exponentially when we discuss the wages of women of color and women with disabilities. We, the core team of the Women's Empowerment Club, sat in a semi-circle under the fluorescents of our teacher-sponsor's classroom when I pitched the idea: Bake Sale for Equality. I'd heard of the notion online: Other activists hosted similar bake sales on their college campuses, but...

Supplemental Essay Scholarship application
172 Words
For Tulane's Dean's Honor Scholarship, I turned the box into a postcard. It depicted me sitting on the Tulane sign in the front of the university, and it had text that said "Greetings from Florida, Wish I was here!" I then cut the box up into nine separate pieces and hid them around campus along with envelopes that had clues inside them. I then mailed Tulane my application for the scholarship along with an envelope upon which was written "Clue #1",...

Supplemental Essay Unique question posed by school
109 Words
They say you should only do theatre if there's nothing else you can possibly do with your life. I understand the sentiment, but I have to disagree. I could do other things with my life. I could be a fantastic activist, an educator, a scientist, a photographer, and I'm passionate about all of these things, but when I picture my future I cannot see myself doing anything that would keep me from the stage. When I sit amongst an audience,...

Whether I used a private admissions counselor, and advice I received
236 Words
I could not afford a private admissions counselor, nor do I think they are necessary or helpful to enough of an extent to warrant the cost. I took advice from my teachers, older peers who had gone through the application process previous to myself, and guidance counselors at my school. I also took advantage of many a college fair and information session and advise you to do the same and introduce...
