Ever since I was a little girl, traveling has been in my blood. It was never something I chose, but rather it chose me. As I became older, my thirst to travel grew exponentially. By the time I was 10 years old, my family had traveled to several different countries spanning the European continent. To say the least, I've been privileged to be able to visit so many different interesting countries. For most of my life, I saw my travels as...
Supplemental Essay Unique question posed by school
271 Words
Given that a plurality of voices is crucial to broadening our educational experiences and cultural awareness, what is one view that you hold—large or small—that would contribute to the variety of perspectives at Notre Dame?: As a Roman Catholic Dominican, my grandmother was not always tolerant or open to other beliefs that were not similar to hers. She was quite close-minded and this was not uncommon in the environment she grew up in. Many of the people who...
Supplemental Essay “Why us” school essay
257 Words
Why Northwestern?: Upon opening a Northwestern pamphlet that was sent to my address, I could immediately sense the school spirit that goes on at the school. All the happy students walking across campus to go to class or to an event made me realize more than ever that I wanted to be a future face in that catalogue. The Big Ten football games, the amazing professors, the Kellogg Program for undergrads, the internship and study abroad opportunities, even the school's...

Tell us about a time you had all of the facts but missed the meaning: Sometimes words get taken out of their intended context and get lost in translation. These words that are meant to make us understand, can as easily make us confused. When my parents informed me of our financial status, I listened and nodded, but in all honesty, I missed what they were trying to portray to me. Behind the facts that they were spewing, they were...

For Notre Dame, I felt like it was very important to emphasize my beliefs and stance on religion. Although I am Catholic, I wanted the school to know that I am a spiritual person beyond my religion, and there are certain things that I may disagree with the Catholic Church. It is important to always portray yourself as who you truly are to the school you are applying to, and Notre Dame needed to know that I am an open-minded,...

Why I ultimately chose my school
188 Words
I was very stuck between Northwestern University and my current school, the University of Notre Dame. What ultimately happened was I visited both schools and created a pros and cons list.

Why I declined other schools
384 Words
Some schools I was accepted to were my safety schools, and considering I got into many of my top choice schools, I automatically knew I did not want to attend those schools. Additionally, some schools did not give me enough scholarship or financial aid money, and if I could not afford to attend the school, I did not want to submit myself to a lifetime of debt. Since I applied to so many schools, it was difficult to decide which schools I was going to reject, and which I would ultimately attend. After I decided not to go to the...
Recommended summer activities during high school and college
287 Words
In high school, this is the time where you can relax and hang out with friends. I got a job the summer going into my senior year so I could have some extra cash during the school year. I had the same job throughout the year and also the summer before going into college. I don't regret my decision, but I do think it would have been more productive to find an internship for the summer going into my senior year because it would have given...
