Standing in a crowded convention center- full of people, noises, and unidentified smells- in an impractical outfit that probably involves uncomfortable shoes is not most people’s idea of “perfectly content.” It’s not even most people’s idea of fun. Comic Con, a blanket term for the pop culture conventions around the country that attract the most dedicated of super fans, is something only the very specific target audience will ever (or could ever) enjoy; unless you can stomach...

Supplemental Essay “Why us” school essay
185 Words
I love experiences. I like to think I’ll try anything once, just to be able to say I did it. Unfortunately, living in a small town limits my opportunities for new and unique experiences. I am tired of living in a suburban bubble. As I look for a college, I want to be in a place where things are constantly happening and I will be given the opportunity to push myself outside of my comfort zone. I was initially...

Supplemental Essay “Why us” school essay

At the time of writing, I am the only person in school with purple hair. Reactions have been nothing but positive.

From wearing the clothes off my life sized doll (my prized possession at the time) to drawing a lightning bolt on my forehead, to dragging...

Supplemental Essay “Why us” school essay
207 Words
Firstly, I adore the structure of the 5C’s. It offers me the opportunities and diverse student body found only at large schools, while still providing the intimacy and more specific focus of a smaller one. Those are both things I wanted in a college, but did not expect to get both. However, Scripps is my favorite of the Claremont schools for a few reasons. The biggest draw for me is the women’s college. There are not many places...

Supplemental Essay Issue of personal significance

The move I made as a child from urban southern California to suburban Connecticut was hardly easy. I was unprepared for the frigid winters and unforgiving social climate of my new home 3000 miles away from everything I'd ever known. It wasn’t until I set foot in my first theater as a nine year old that I, a quirky thing that could read a 500 page book in an afternoon but had an unfortunate habit of getting hit in the face...
