College Application Essays

In the seventh grade I was offered gang protection. My San Francisco middle school was smack in the middle of the territory of one gang but also attended by children of other area gang members. As I walked down the hall one day, pass in hand, I noticed a lone figure farther down the way, struggling under a pile of sheet music, probably suffering through a detention. Hoping to prolong my absence from Pre-Algebra, I offered to help carry his...

At the beginning of my first visit to Wellesley I was given a campus map.

I expect my time at Bryn Mawr will be shaped by my academic pursuits in Classics and archeology, and by sharing my passion for learning with the rest of the community. Bryn Mawr is not for women who are unwilling to throw themselves into challenges, and neither is translating Homer. Within the Classics department I have found a small community of passionate and vibrant women, scholars who will not accept anything less than the most challenging of texts and paces....
