A few questions...

What essays do you have to do for Brown (cant find on website), NYU and UPenn (computer messing up so can't view the applications)?

Do you think a good essay theme would be why I decided to study in America, all influences, how i went about it etc etc... or is that too close to home (eww i keep using cliches)?

NYU: choose one of the following:
A. Tell us about a person, place, or event in your life that has particular meaning for you, and why it is important to you. We'd especially like to hear about someone or something that has affected your life that may not have been noticed by other people.
B. Tell us about something you did last Sunday afternoon.
C. Write about your interaction with your friends. Explain why you and your friends might become the next great sitcom, and describe your role in the show.
D. Select a creative work -- a novel, a film, a musical piece, a painting, or other work of art -- that has influenced the way you view the world and the way you view yourself. Discuss the impact the work has had on you.

Brown's online app seems to be down. Don't want to register for UPenn.
