“Wow, that doesn’t look good…” Not exactly what I wanted to hear from a medical professional regarding my teeth, or lack thereof. It happened one Thursday night and left me sprawled out, face down on a volleyball court below a crowd of spectators. I lifted my tongue and felt just slivers of what had been my two front teeth. In a surreal daze and with the salvageable pieces of my teeth in hand, I was rushed out, while my...
Supplemental Essay Amusing anecdote
896 Words
The task originally seemed easy: “build a working vehicle using supplies from around the house, and nothing but a mousetrap as a power source.” It was a chance to apply the physics we learned to the real world, and have a fun class competition at the same time. After seeing several examples in class I thought I could create a functioning car in a matter of hours; a few CDs as wheels, wooden rulers as the frame, and a piece...

When I was deciding what schools to apply to, one of the biggest factors was actually location. I had tons of friends trying to get as far away from home as possible, applying to schools in Massachusetts, New York, Chicago, etcetera.
