Love of writing, Place you’re content
Describe a place or environment where you are perfectly content. What do you do or experience there, and why is it meaningful to you? Physical places are so last-century: everyone is on the move now, making their homes on their desktops and their phones, and—in my case—in my notebook and on my blog. The state where I’m perfectly content is more mental place than physical: it's wherever I’m writing and in flow. I love my writing...

Supplemental Essay Issue of personal significance
537 Words
"I am a writer who came of a sheltered life. A sheltered life can be a daring life as well. For all serious daring starts from within." —Eudora Welty, One Writer's Beginnings. I lead a beautifully sheltered life, and I have always written as a hobby, but I have not always been a writer because I have not always had cause to be seriously daring. At the start of tenth grade, I was Queen Bee, or close enough, but a...

Additional Essay Details
157 Words
I only applied to Princeton, and I really wanted to get my love of writing across in the essays (which were of course supplemented by the creative writing samples I provided). The Common App essay was intended to express my absolute joy and passion when it comes to writing, in a well-written and bouncy piece of prose. For the Princeton-specific essay, I selected the prompt about a quote, and I wrote a more serious and personal essay about how important...

My favorite course thus far, and why
185 Words
My favorite course at Princeton so far (and even though I've only been there for a year, it's hard to choose!) has been the Humanities Sequence. HUM216-219 (it's four credits over two semesters) is a little notorious for the incredible amount of reading and writing its students are expected to do as they read all...

How I chose schools to apply to
124 Words
I chose schools largely based on the amount of financial aid that they were offering: the Ivies (and Stanford) offer great need-based aid, with Princeton being the cheapest option of all. Having a lower tuition was key...

Recommended summer activities during high school and college
405 Words
I spent part of the summer before 12th grade visiting colleges in the USA, and I would really recommend it to any international student, or student who might have difficulty visiting East or West Coast schools in several trips from home (e.g. those living in the Midwest). Those who are planning on doing a college road trip of the sort should really plan ahead - it helps to have narrowed down a list of possible schools to about 8-10. After 10 admissions talks, you won't be able to tell any of the schools apart, which is why a notebook and...
