I've begun to think about my college essays, and I've stumbled upon my first Supplemental Essay for Stanford about Intellectual Vitality.
"Stanford students are widely known to possess a sense of intellectual vitality. Tell us about an idea or an experience you have had that you find intellectually engaging."
With the recent ***ushima incident, I've had a lot of discussions with my friends (and teachers) about the risks/benefits of Nuclear Energy.
If I were to write about Nuclear Energy and reference ***ushima, would I be going into a realm of certain rejection because of the controversiality (just made up a word, LOL) of the topic, and just write about a different topic? Or should I go on with writing about Nuclear Energy?
*I will be writing about my opinions on Nuclear Energy, etc.
Edit: Some of my other ideas are:
-Writing about the TV Show "Snapped"
-The History behind Korean Historical Dramas (weird, I know...)
