Three short supplemental essays written by a student currently attending New York University:
"I have always wanted to follow in my father's footsteps into the medical profession. Studying biology at NYU is exactly what I am looking for because it would prepare me for postgraduate training in the biological sciences and also for medical school. My interest in medicine has further evolved after doing research in disease prevention while interning at Yale Medical School this past summer. The possibility of continuing with independent research at NYU is very appealing to me."
"A global network university is a place where students come from a variety of cultures and are exposed to a world-class education without boundaries.
Studying at NYU will expose me to a multi-faceted life in the big city and to a diverse community of students and faculty who share my interest in music and science. In New York City, I can explore its various resources in both areas and broaden my outlook to experience and interrelate with the musical and scientific community at large."
"I would bring Emperor Ashoka to my home country because history tells us that he renounced violence forever and led a life of peace after he became extremely distraught over the carnage of a military invasion he ordered. The fact that he realized his abuse of power is the reason I would bring him to the U.S. today. I would ask him what he thinks about the USA’s moral responsibilities as a superpower. Would he disapprove of our current foreign policies? What would he suggest to President Obama?"
