Researching for examples of past college essays that worked? These are some admissions essays that our officers thought have been most successful (and some thoughts from the officers that liked them).
Daniel Bekai '20 Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
People who have grown up with siblings might possibly laugh in the idea that I consider being an only child an essential part of my identity. But just as a relationship which includes a brother or sister could very well be deeply formative, so can the absence of these relationships. For me, this absence has become a powerful stimulus to my imagination and my growth as a person.
When people discover I am an only child, they often react with some sympathy, as if growing up alone meant growing up lonely. It's certainly true that I spent a lot of time alone; even though I had close friends in elementary school, I hung out with them mostly on weekends. But I never felt lonely. As a young child, I loved to get lost in different projects of my own--whether it was establishing rudimentary circuits and illuminating LED lights with my “DeluxeElectronics Lab,” or improving my origami technique with my “Fold-a-Day” calendar. In these activities, I needed no conversation partner, no playmate, as the act of generation itself became my friend, challenging me to keep improving upon my skills. But I didn't always have to have wires and bulbs and paper to keep me interested; over time, I learned to look for satisfaction during the easy to understand act of daydreaming.
I treat these “daydreaming” very seriously. For me, daydreaming really is a powerful resource for my creativity. Almost all of my ideas--whether they concern putting together a robot, crafting a student council speech, or solving a problem--originate in my daydreams. A single thing that perhaps sets me apart from the stereotypical “daydreamer” tends to be that I have the ability to put my daydreams to utilize in real life. During my sophomore 12 months of significant school, I was watching two of my friends arm wrestle, and I began to daydream about arm wrestling. Arm wrestling is regarded as a peculiar sport, in that it's always one-on-one; there are no variations with a lot more than two players. I began to wonder if there was a way to have two people arm wrestle against another two people. My daydream then underwent a critical metamorphosis, from the realm of ideas to the realm of execution. That summer, I created a product for a double arm wrestling machine on Google Sketchup, and then, with the help of the professional welder, turned the product into a reality. Later that calendar year, I organized the first of all ever two-on-two arm wrestling tournament in my school's history (and probably the world's too). As an extra bonus, all the money I raised from the double arm wrestling tournament was donated to the people of Nepal, who suffered an earthquake just a few weeks prior to the tournament.
Growing up as an only child, learning to entertain myself with nothing but ideas, problems, and some rudimentary materials, has taught me the importance of listening to one's possess thoughts. This is very important nowadays, as we live in a very world extensive of screens and sounds competing for our attention. As a result, it is all too straightforward to tune out the increased subtle frequency of our imaginations, the inner frontier. Quite a few people have what the writer Verlyn Klinkenborg called “a fear on the dark, cavernous put called the mind,” but there is certainly nothing to fear there. In fact, there may be a lot of to learn. I am grateful, as an only child, to have had the chance to grow comfortable in that solitary room.

Katherine Glass '18 Dana Hall School, MA
A portrait of Julia Child leans precariously on my bedside table competing for house with sticky notes, pennies, and also a plastic alarm clock. Julia happens to be my role product ever since I spent an hour on the Smithsonian American History Museum watching cooking clearly show after cooking display. As she dropped eggs, burnt soufflés, and prepared a whole pig, she never took herself too seriously and with her goofy smile and accompanying laugh. And yet, she was as successful in her discipline as anyone could ever be. Her passion completely guided her career. She taught me that it does not matter what I choose to do, it only matters that I do it with my whole self; zealously and humorously.
Unlike Julia, I do not aspire to be a chef. Brownies out of the box may just be the highlight of my baking career. Something I have been passionate about for my whole life, however, is teaching. The initial traces of my excitement came from the summer camp that I founded when I was seven years old. Motivated by too lots of imperfect summer camp experiences, I established my ideal summer camp, just one in which campers could choose their activities, from banana split tutorials to wacky hat-making. So that calendar year it began, with seven five-year-old campers in my backyard. For six consecutive years, I ran my summer camp, just about every 12 months tweaking and improving from the years before.
Chebeague Island, Maine, established a preschool inside of the spring of 2012, run out of the trailer by a recent college graduate. I volunteered as an intern. For three months, I helped organize to the summer and therefore the following calendar year. I took out the trash, cleaned, and sorted toys, all despite the fact that studying how to incorporate educational material into preschool activities. I wrote curriculum and researched preschool regulations to ensure that we were being in compliance. We created a safe classroom, an academic plan for that upcoming 12 months, including a balance among learning and playing while in the classroom. By the stop belonging to the summer the intern became the co-director belonging to the summer preschool program.
This past June, I returned to the trailer to choose the place and program in finish disarray. Since the previous summer, the preschool had seen two new directors together with the latest was spread thin, juggling maintenance, finances and curriculum planning. My progress had not endured. After sulking for a week, I decided I was considerably better suited to envelop Julia’s mentality. What did she do when she flipped a burger onto the ground? She smiled, laughed in the camera, picked it up, reshaped it a tiny, and kept right on going. So that’s what I did. I brought inside of a group of friends to clean and organize the trailer. I initiated a “lobster-roll” fundraiser, and Island lobstermen donated lobsters despite the fact that their wives came together to pick meat from the shells. It was wildly successful and thrived about the community’s spirit. Then I worked to reinstate some sort of educational value into the summer program. We danced to Spanish and Ghanaian music, crafted wacky hats, and go through books about the lobstering industry, an aspect of their community that may be so significant.
My past two summers have been exhausting and all too frequently frustrating but ultimately the Chebeague Island Preschool, along with most other teaching experiences, has exposed me to the ground amount of education policy with the United States. After this past summer my goal is to become a long term U.S. Secretary of Education.
So my portrait of Julia is by my bedside to remind me. Remind me that throughout the tedium of my extremely busy life you will find something that I am passionate about. To remind me that personality and humor are essential to success. And remind me that the sort of passion I will want to succeed is just not the type that will let me give in to minimal setbacks along the way.

“Being a housewife is actually a complicated and demanding job,” Luna reported with sparkling approval shimmering across her face, relaying her father's weekly speech. “A real elite housewife should be an educated and elegant woman who can lay the foundation for her husband's success.” It was a sweet Sunday afternoon, a perfect time with the daily girl-talk in between my most advantageous friend and me. However, this statement shocked and surprised me.
“But if these women are talented, why should they rely on their own husbands and give up their chances to have a career?” I asked.
She shrugged nonchalantly. “Due to the fact that men are greater at enterprise.”
Her words reminded me of my grandparents' attitude. I've told my grandparents a number of times: “I aspire to be a physicist who can layout a spaceship when we would need to immigrate to other terrestrial planets!” They just laugh and reply, “Marry someone nice and live a smart life; that would be enough for a girl.” When I tell them that I would like to major in either natural sciences or social sciences, they respond with: “Choose social sciences; boys are born improved at math. Don't compete with them.” I began to come to feel that being born a girl, I had been fettered with plenty of unfair expectations. I know that my grandparents have been influenced by old customs in China; after all they ended up born and raised before the People's Republic of China was established. My grandmother spent her entire life nurturing their four children and so my grandparents ended up deeply ingrained with the notion that girls belong at home rather than establishing their have careers in society, that a highly independent and successful life is out of the girl's achieve.
Even though I know they have well-meaning intentions and this is how they display they care about me, I can't conform to their expectations. I choose to believe that everybody is born with the equal right to be the person he or she wants to be, instead of being constrained by expectations associated with gender. Every single an individual of us has the capacity to realize his or her dreams provided that equal efforts are paid.
And so, I have tried to live my life beyond these constraints. Within the following semesters, I took Physics and Economics courses in the process as French and Literature lessons. It was never about the divide concerning the sciences and also humanities, nonetheless it was about being fascinated by both equally subject areas and craving unseen sights within just each and every. Along this journey of exploration, I have met thunder, lightning and rain; yet with the desire to follow and establish my have interests, I can face obstacles with comprehensive morale and confidence. Given that these ended up my choices and decisions - I have no excuses - if I don't do effectively while in the physics check, it's on the grounds that I was not hard working enough, not since I am a girl.
I thought again to when I shared my transcript which includes a 5 on AP Physics with my grandparents. Watching them nod in approval and proudly say: “Who explained girls cannot study science? Tremendous operate done right here,” I suddenly felt that there's strength inside of me, and possibly inside every individual in society - the strength to shake off the shackles of rigid cultural expectations. I did not conform to the traditional expectations of my grandparents, yet the path I am developing is continue to not only worthwhile and rewarding but also 1 which is beginning to earn their appreciation.
With these experiences playing while in the back again of my mind, I responded to Luna: “Clearly, inside past opportunities for women ended up restricted, but nowadays, we should try to live an exemplary life that proves gender does not must define our lives. Very good power exists in every solitary one particular of us. After all, to define is to limit.”
