i am currently a junior in high school. i am an above average student with a 4.25 gpa, i take honors and ap courses. i am taking the sat in november, i got a 200 on the psat.
For my application essay i was thinking of writing on a event that impacted my life, socially and academically. However, i am not sure if it is acceptable for a college application. So, i was just wondering if i could get any ideas on whether or not this would be approved of at UCs.
In the spring of my sophomore year i began to party, and this was reflected in my grades . I ended up consuming too much alcohol at one party, and an ambulance was called. I had alcohol poisoning. I spent the entire night in the ER not sure what was going on. My mother had been there all night, and sadly it was mothers day.
Then i would just continue to write how this had a positive impact because i have chosen to never drink or party again. Also, this can reflected in my grades because they have quite obviously improven.
