I've worried about Christoph Kramer for months—I haven’t been able to find out anything about his condition since about a week after he got a concussion in the World Cup final, but my concussion doctor warned me of the dangers of second impact syndrome and the increased risk of future brain injury—like life, concussions aren’t about the first blow, but about what happens after. A girl collides with my head as she falls from a stunt....

475 Words
I’m here to find where there’s supposed to be. If here is now and there is then Then then lies far from here. It’s just as well To say with strength That here I learn my strengths.

You need to be able to write convincingly about your most rewarding extra curricular activity and you need to show the school your commitment. Furthermore, absolutely do not limit your activities to just academic--even if they're varied (math, debate, science) and even if...





My advice about getting recommenders
359 Words
At my school, they have junior teachers write about you so that the counselors can subtly tell you if you should ask a teacher or not. So the first thing to do is to ask your college counselor if any teacher has said anything really positive about you. Next, if they don't seem like they really want to ABSOLUTELY DO NOT BEG THEM! Don't even ask twice. If they're hesitant, they will not write a good letter for you. You want it to be glowing and make you stand out--not lukewarm and make you blend in. Next, ASK YOUR TEACHERS...
