College Application Essays

Evaluate a significant experience, achievement, risk you have taken, or ethical dilemma you have faced and its impact on you. It was the spring of 2000, and I was terrified. My parents had decided to move from India to Saudi Arabia, and I was deathly afraid of what this endeavor would bring. An unfamiliar setting, separation from my friends, being at the mercy of new teachers – in short, I was facing everything a timid ten-year-old would ever want to avoid. Nothing...

A number of years ago, a father was teaching his two-and-a-half year old son to read in English. He asked the boy to put together the syllables ma and ma. Without hesitation, the boy replied, “two mas.” A precociously sarcastic toddler? It would seem so, but when one considers who I am, my response is not so surprising. I am naturally a mathematician, and always have felt comfortable with numbers and logic. It would seem odd, then, that throughout my...
