Topic for College Essay: Many students expand their view of the world during their time in college. Such growth often results from encounters between students who have lived different cultural, economic, or academic experiences. With your future growth in mind, describe a potential classmate that you believe you could learn from either within or outside a formal classroom environment.
Do you think they are asking to describe a specific person that exists or a figurative person? I’m assuming they pretty much want me to describe somebody that is different than me and how I can learn from him/her.
Has anybody else written an essay like this? How did you handle it?
