Tangled Times A frizzy mane of unruly ringlets crowns me as the owner of the Hair That Cannot Be Tamed. With corkscrew curls poking out freely from every inch of my head, I am quickly given the nickname “Fro-Fro”-- half lovingly and half mockingly-- by the children in my 5th grade class. Believing that there is truth in their ridicule, I decide to try out a new ‘do. I make a valiant attempt to tame my curls by creating...

Supplemental Essay “Why us” school essay
204 Words
Colgate University takes my breath away; that’s why I applied. The kindness took my breath away: receiving handwritten thank-you notes after visiting showed me the personal touch and genuine community at Colgate. The beauty of the campus took my breath away: the rolling hills and out-of-the-way feel made it stunning during the summer-- what I thought was its most stunning season. Wrong. I received my two-sided poster in the mail, showing me Colgate’s fall/winter scenery-- a tactic...

I wish that I had spend less time stressing about each of my applications after I had applied. Once you hit send, there is nothing you can do. If you get waitlisted or deferred, that is the only time you should send in more information. It is important to start early so you don't stress at the very end,...

Why I declined other schools

Colgate: Although I loved Colgate, I decided not to go there because of its rural location, size, and strong Greek life presence. Initially, I thought the school was cute and beautifully nestled in the mountains. It is cute, but when I envisioned myself being...

List of schools I interviewed with and my interview experience
204 Words
I interviewed at Wake Forest, Colgate, and College of William and Mary. Although Colgate doesn't officially offer them, when you get a tour it is a good idea to sign up for one. Since it is a smaller school, they really care about your true interest. I really enjoyed my Wake Forest interview. It was pretty basic, but their questions allowed...
