Although, ED deadline has long passed
I'm still curious of who did the 3rd opt. essay,
and what he/she wrote about.

Personally, I wrote about a pair of blue cowboy boots, and how it made me embrace my Midwestern roots. (first experiences essay)

What did ya'll write about?

    I did it on my first summer at camp and the experience of being somewhere where it didn`t matter how "fashionable, smart or athletic" I was.
