Millions More to Go “Don’t look down!” they yelled. Wind rushed past me, rain continued to fall, and even though they told me not to look down, I had to. The water below could almost pass as waves, as it splashed against the Sydney Opera House, gorgeous as the sun reflected off the stained glass windows. It was a breathtaking sight: sailboats were gliding by underneath me; trees rustled in the wind. I could see the entire city was...







Supplemental Essay: Scholarship application
759 Words
Bones showing through dark skin; the last sickly breaths made on a dirt floor under a thatched roof; tearful eyes looking into the soulless eyes of a body that was once his mother’s.

College Admissions Advice

How I chose schools to apply to
1207 Words

137 Words
Ultimately, my choice came down to financial aid. UNC gave me the most aid, with the least loans. Financial aid is definitely a huge factor in most people's college decisions. I'm very happy with my decision though, because not only is...





How to increase chances at my school
644 Words
I think that I can speak for most schools when I give you advice on how to increase your chances of getting in. You want to start early (freshman year at least) in your planning. Colleges know that if you join a lot of clubs or volunteer a lot in your junior and senior year, that the odds are you are just doing it because it looks good on applications. You need to get involved in a few things you really enjoy, and stick with them. Long term involvement in a few things looks way better than short term involvement...
