Let's talk here about the 5 essays (1 required and 4 optional in part2)
Let everybody tells which essays did he write, or plan to write (if regular action) and what were or will be his/her essays.
And also other questions concerning the essays.
I am a international (Bulagria) RA applicant:
main essay: I wrote B, and I wrote about the impact
my family, school and extracirrucular activity have had on me.
how they have shaped me into the person i am now and what i have learned,
how they have motivated and shaped my dreams and aspiration.
I think it's well written.
first optional (100 words) about the thing for pleasure : I plan to write something about that i like reading books.
second optional (100 words) I am interestred in EECS as i am programming
and like computers, and such things
third (about sth i have created). I wrote about a clay sculpture i have created. Everybody says it is excellent and full of passion and i think they are right.
fourth : Not sure yet, bu i plan to explain that i love challenges and taking risks, and such things.
My main essay is pretty good now but it is 588 words. I wonder if that's ok
ot i shall try to reduce it. I do not think it's boring, so no one would probably notice that it is excessively long.
