College Application Essays

For me, being completely content is something that only occurs once a year. A small portion of my summers is spent at my cottage in Moultonborough, NH. A population of only around 4,000 people, Moultonborough is smaller than my high school graduating class. But size is not important. While I’m at my tiny cottage, the first house that my parents ever owned, I feel happy. I feel absolute peace, and I have moments of serenity that I wouldn’t trade...









Supplemental Essay: “Why us” school essay
244 Words
I’ve always wanted to go to school in the city, but up until last year I didn’t really think it was a smart idea…until I visited BU. While I am currently living in Florida, I am originally from the northeast and have been infatuated with the city of Boston ever since I was a little boy. While I am a diehard Boston Red Sox fan, I now realize that the University has a lot more to offer...

I'm going to be very frank, here. I love social media. As a 17-year-old boy, less than a year removed from moving from Connecticut to Florida, social media is a daily part of my life. I use it to connect with old friends, as well as new friends. I am able to keep up with just about everything that is going on between my new life in Florida and my old life in Connecticut. In the back of my mind,...

Since I was little, I’ve always had a knack for creating. I’ve been working with the program Adobe Photoshop for the past 4-5 years now, and this past summer I finally decided to take a step forward with my ability and applied it to something I love: sports. As a hobby, I established a photo editing company, called Fastbreak Studios. There, I create edits for professional athletes, specifically those in the NBA. I began to market my ideas...





Supplemental Essay: Issue of personal significance
316 Words
At my age, many teenagers don’t exactly appreciate the time they have with their grandparents. I am the exception. My grandfather has impacted my life greatly ever since I was born. An immigrant from Japan, he has taught me to work hard, respect my peers, and to always try my best. When I smile, my squinted eyes and bushy, brown eyebrows reflect the Japanese blood he has given to me. While it isn’t apparent to someone who doesn...

Being a quarter Japanese is something in which I take pride. I’ve grown up under my mother who is half Japanese, and because of that, I am who I am today. My grandfather is 82 years old, and he was born in Okinawa, Japan. As a child, I remember listening to stories that he had from coming over to the states and the struggles he went through. He has been a compelling advocate in my life, and I consider him...

While it may sound completely cliché, getting my driver’s license was the moment when I began to feel like I was growing up. As a kid, driving was something that seemed light-years away. I remember my parents mumbling to themselves about poor drivers on the road, always turning around to tell me to never be a driver like them. But as I began to get older, the one thing that I know allowed me to feel like an adult...

I know that I personally dedicated a lot of time towards forming one strong essay, and that I didn't put in as much effort towards individual school essays. This, looking back on it, was probably a mistake during the time.
