Personal Statement: Reaching a goal

“This is a bishop. It moves diagonally.” The blank look on each child’s face was not a good sign. I looked to both sides of me, but nobody was there. I was alone in an unfamiliar place in the middle of Cambodia. As thoughts of failure started to fill my brain, I focused back to my chess coach, Bruce Pandolfini. “You will succeed,” he would tell me.

That being said, my favorite attribute of M&T is the business education I would receive to enhance my engineering education. This summer, I interned at a...









Supplemental Essay: Unique question posed by school
517 Words
When I read your first question, I was intrigued. I mulled it over every so often for about a week, until one day I just burst into laughter. I realized that there was no answer. I found it hilarious that thousands of high school students were thinking as hard as they could to come up with some answer that just didn’t exist. I realized this because the inherent failure of the first question is prompted by the second question. ...
