College Application Essays

I always thought acting exercises made people look silly. I wouldn’t be caught dead doing ‘mah mah’s or those stupid ‘eooeoo’ sounds. These feelings posed quite a dilemma for me when I started performing in shows. I received my first big role during my freshman year as a sassy, antagonistic bird in Seussical the Musical. At the start of every day’s rehearsal, the directors would ask the cast to make some weird noises, repeat odd phrases, or...

Supplemental Essay: Amusing anecdote
530 Words
My first day of high school was off to a rough start. I’d been late to every class so far that day and my trying to remedy the situation by rushing, ended up making me drop all my belongings in a packed stairwell. Little did I know that the worst was yet to come. The bell for 6th period rang. This dawned the start of my lunch hour and it would be the first time since kindergarten that I...
