    I can't even decide which prompt to do! I'm leaning towards "Describe a picture and what it wants" but I'm not sure.

    *keep in mind that the essay prompts that you see now are NOT for the class of 2013*

    I wrote about me, plain and simple. I wrote about my headstrong self and my twisted relationship with school and with authority. Although I wrote about myself, I used one of the essay prompts from my year as a distinct launchpad... had I applied to other schools, I would have probably zipped the connection to the specific Chicago prompt and would have left the personal stuff the same.
