Common app essay - bungee jumping

can you vividly describe jumping from a high place like bungee jumping? and that amazing feeling of fear and happiness that comes with it? I need to visually describe with imagery the art of letting go and just jumping.

i’m almost finished with my essay… was just having a hard time coming up with a powerful connection.

In the end you need to be sure your essay: 1)highlights something positive about yourself that can’t be found elsewhere in the application and 2) gives admission officers a reason to want you on their campus.

If u tie it to yourself and the feelings…whether exhilaration, fear or otherwise then yeah

Google papa Johns + auburn + Yale. She wrote about waiting for her papa johns.

If u can show about yourself I love the idea. Of course I’m not an AO.

That’s great. Someone will now steal your essay.

Please delete it. Do not post essays. If someone says you can PM it to them then send that way.

I don’t think there’s much danger in that, since the essay is really, really bad.


I thought trying too hard but……

Following a dark and stormy night, I approached the bungee cord and looked out upon the vast ocean and noted that the sea was angry that day my friend.
