I saw that a thread was made earlier about the Common App Topic of your choice. However, that thread dealt with using a topic from another college as the Topic of Your Choice.
I am applying to Muhlenberg College ED, and rather than using the 5 topics in the Common App, I’d like to use my own topic. It would be something like “What is one thing that you value the most in life.” I want to talk about how happiness is important to survive through life. How my own perception of happiness changed from childhood to adulthood (it went from adventures and things to superficial things like clothes and cars). visiting the earthquake devasted portion of turkey (the country where my parents are from) showed me that even without expensive cars and such people can be happy. And I’ve learned that its this happiness that guides people throughout even the toughest times in life.
what do u think? please help.
