|If this isn't you, you're doing it wrong|
(You'll see I only applied to UC schools, and you're probably wondering: "Santos how can you, with your unbounded wisdom and knowledge (sarcasm, of course), not have applied to every Ivy League even though you had fee waivers, well, there's a entire story about that under COUNSELORS)
I knew I had literal MONTHS to work on these, but I never got to it. Do not make the same mistake I made by waiting. The only reason I was able to do so was because for the past 2 years or so I had compiled many notes on my phone about different topics and drafts about my extracurriculars. It still took me from when I started to 11:50 P.M., I DO NOT RECOMMEND WAITING TO THE END. It is a dangerous game, but without further ado, the product of an entire afternoons worth.
THE ESSAYS (cue the dun-dun-dun tune from the movies)
I'm going to include the prompts and then what I wrote. DO NOT FOR WHATEVER REASON COPY AND PASTE THIS, IF MORE THAN ONE OF YOU DO SO, THEY (COLLEGES) WILL MORE THAN LIKELY REALIZE AND NOT ONLY IMMEDIATELY REJECT YOU BUT NOTIFY YOUR COUNSELOR. BY READING THIS OR ANY OF MY ESSAYS YOU ARE ENTERING A MUTUAL AGREEMENT THAT I HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH ANYTHING OUTSIDE OF MY BLOG. WHATEVER YOU DO IS ON YOU.
(I attached a pdf because I am committed to the cause 😎!)
