The first words my tenth grade physics teacher spoke to my class offered me the chance to finally seize the opportunity I had been waiting for since I was a kid.

Princeton Quote “The zipper displaces the button and a man lacks that much time to think while dressing at dawn, a philosophical hour, and thus melancholy hour.” Fahrenheit 451 Even though Beatty, an antagonist who opposes intellectual advancement and vitality, makes this statement to refer to the subtly ironic tragedy of technological advancements that yield less desire to ponder, I do not mean to suggest that mankind would be better off without such advancements.

One particular patient, suffering from common diabetes symptoms,...

I’ve attached a couple here and tried to include various ones from different schools. I guess these essays were good enough to get me into places, but when I was writing my essays, what I found really unhelpful- and even sometimes distracting- was spending hours reading the “successful essays” and trying to figure out what was so special about them. All I can tell you is that the whole application process is a sad story. You basically have to...
