Study/travel abroad
This was all very different to me. It wasn’t the fact that I was on a plane. I had flown many times before. It wasn’t the fact that I was flying to Europe. I had done that two years ago when my family returned to Moscow with my adopted sister. This time, it had to do with me. I was sitting next to an old English man with ruddy skin that glared my direction every time the cabin...

Supplemental Essay “Why us” school essay
405 Words
On my plate was sushi, stir-fry, a turkey-burger, and a vegan spinach salad. Days before, on another college recruiting trip, I had eaten “mystery meat” in brown gravy for all 48 hours of my trip. It hit me! This is what NYU can offer me. It can offer me diversity: a smorgasbord of life. My dining hall experience paralleled what NYU can offer me. Some people are meat and potatoes kind of people. I am not. I like variety. I like...

The essay topic for NYU 2015 was: NYU is global, urban, inspired, smart, connected, and bold. What can NYU offer you, and what can you offer NYU? ... Now this topic seems very daunting because at the age of 18, not many of us are as amazing as NYU, yet we don't want to sound like we are pleading for them to accept us. Think hard, at the time when I was writing this essay, I was hungry. I believe the food metaphors...

What I like about my school’s location and culture
301 Words
There is nothing like NYU, the availability to internships all year round at a business school that is consistently ranked within the top 5 in the country. The odds cannot be beat. There is a reason that it isn't called The Wolf of Cambridge, Mass. Its because business comes to New York City, and only Stern students have full access to it day-in and day-out. If NYU Stern isn’t on your list, then perhaps you should take a step back and research the school more closely. It’s a...

How to increase chances at my school

I had a 3.7 weighted GPA and 1910 on my SAT's. Do not assume that just because you don't have a 4.9 and 2400 that you won't get in. NYU is a global campus, what they're looking for is well-rounded, diverse and driven kids. My essays, which are what I believe got me in,...

Reaching out to professors and coaches at schools I applied to
388 Words
Being an athlete you have to make a very hard decision, do you continue to play the game that you love, or do you try to pursue an education that will set you up for a more plausible and successful life. Few people are able to play sports in college, even fewer are able to then go on to play professionally. And lastly, only a fraction of the smallest percent are able to make a living off of the money that they earn from competing. I commend those that are able to make a living of their sport, but for...
