"Wow" facor

yourbebeyourbebe 0 replies1 threads New Member
Guys, hi, I'm an international student, and I'm currently applying to universities. I have "wow" factor - I've created a website about physics (There are acrticles about kinematics, dynamics, and so on). The problem is I don't know where I should mention this website. Do I have to write about it in my personal essay or do I have to write it in some section on Common Application?

    Alex, I'll take "Inflated Sense of Self-Importance" for $1000, please.

    Not to burst your bubble, but this is far from a wow factor. Many students approach applications with a certain degree of hubris, but unless you're of the Malala category, little will impress AOs.

    Write about it where it makes sense given the prompt.

    Hi @yourbebe:
    Can you explain what the "wow" factor is?

    It wouldn't be the website. It also wouldn't be the content if that content has already been published anywhere else.

    I get it that you feel "wow'd" by the website. But exactly what is it that will "wow" the adcoms who are reviewing your application?

    Lots and lots of kids do something with the web. Not a tip. Nor is number of followers.
