In five or six sentences, tell us how you first became interested in BU and what steps you have taken to learn more about us.
Boston University has been a college of interest to me for a long time. When I visited Boston two years ago, I fell in love with the city and hoped to find a college that resided in Boston. I explored many websites, asked friends and relatives but the only college in Boston that seemed to fit my personality the best is BU. I have visited many websites about BU and looked all over the BU website and it never ceases to amaze me. To top it all off, many of my friends are also interested in BU.In an essay of no more than 500 words, please select three words that describe you best and tell us how you will use these qualities/characteristics to contribute fully to the BU community.
There are many different people in the world. Some people are active participants in their communities, some people are friendly people adored by their peers, and others are dedicated workers hoping to achieve their goals. Me? I am a mix of all three of these qualities. I inhabit a balance of all three of these qualities that make me a well rounded candidate for BU.
My active participation in my school and community is one of my qualities that I admire most and probably the most useful to the BU community. Active participation is the key to growth in many communities. By participating, a person can improve himself and also his community. In school, I played on the Varsity Fencing Team. Not only do I compete for my school for reward and recognition but I serve as a powerful moral support for my teammates. I actively participate in all the events and act as a powerful persuasion for my teammates to help them succeed. Furthermore, I help the troubled students in my school by tutoring math. Everyday afterschool, I spend time assisting my peers with their work or no one requires help, I assist the teachers in their day's work.
However, this participation does not cease outside of school. Sometimes I assist the mentally disabled individuals via the Special Olympics program. Through two hour sessions, I work as a counselor aiding students by teaching them to play soccer. Other times, I assist my community by participating in many fund raiser walks and causes by assisting them in raising money and participating in the events. I believe I can also actively participate in the BU community and contribute to it as I did here at home.
Furthermore, my friendly personality and dedication to my activities could offer the entire community an insight into a brighter future. In high school, I was a dedicated student who worked hard to achieve my goals. Starting as a normal student with regular classes, I gradually became one of the top students with all the hardest courses. More importantly, I learned about the different levels of society as I advanced through these different courses. This knowledge allows me to communicate with people of many different personalities. This social skill has made me friendlier and has allowed me to see the needs of different people. I hope to use this skill to contribute to the BU community by helping people accommodate with the many different customs and connect to the diverse population at BU.
With time, I believe these three qualities of mine will be of much assistance to the BU community. My active participation along with my friendly personality and dedication will help the BU community evolve into a friendlier and social community.
Please be as harsh as you need but be honest :)
