Hello, I am aplying to 20 universities and I had problems that caused me to wait until today to do the writing supplements. The thing is, I am very hesitating about copying the same response for the same question for different universities, just changing the names etc.
There is my "Why Yale" question ? Should I do the same for all the other ones ? I would really use some advice and correction ! I also might add it as an answer to what motivated you to apply ?
Since I have known about Yale thru my science teacher in 8th grade, who referred to it as a place that could potentially solves the world's problems, I knew that Yale is where I belong. Few people understood my stubborn answer to 'What do you want to do in life' that permanently resulted in these four letters; the luckiest were getting "School of Forestry & Environmental Studies". But I knew what I was aiming for: whether it is for its amazingly rich, diverse and open-minded student body, or its bright, praiseworthy and dedicated scholars, Yale is unquestionably where I would achieve more.
And there is the 'talk about one of your ECs question"
« Grains de philo » (seeds of philosophy) is probably the most pleasant activity of my week. It is a club where we gather to « produce ideas », and sharing them creates a infinite and plentiful mine of thoughts. The main theme is the body, and I chose to work on dance: what is a dancing body compared to a non dancing body? What does dancing involves on a spiritual, social and personal level? Watching Sakharova's and Pina Baucsh's performances with the teacher and discussing them is such a fun an enriching moment that it definitely makes this philosophy club a brain-teasing yet delightful moment.
(I might eventually add a little conclusion for the universities that ask how did it affect our personality )
