4. What do you wish you were better at being or doing?
"Parallel parking. I forgot to practice for my driving test, and I had to teach myself how to do it in the middle of the test. I barely succeeded on the final attempt!"
Haha. I'm actually great at parallel parking but not so good when it comes to actual turn in normal parking.
so we were speaking about the questions we answered on our Yale application
not the things you think you are better at
He told us something personal
that does not mean you should say you are better at his "weakness"
If you have anything nice to add to the discussion, please do
I did put something risky on an application. For USC, the questions was "most prized posession," and I put "my virginity." They probably thought I was a hardcore Christian or a completely joking s k a n k, but either way, I got in early with a scholarship. :]
Risky can be good! Or maybe my riskiness kept me from the Trustee Scholarship...hmm....
I t h i n k you pushed that a little higher than anyone would.
I would definitely ask questions if i read that essay.
I guess you answered their question properly, and so you got in.
I think the Trustee scholarship was just taken from you, no question.
Could they TRUST you?
