I'm only posting this after my friend sent in a video of himself rapping to 50 cent and dancing. (sry, buddy, but if you're reading this, you really shouldn't dance. u really do suck.)
oh yeah, and this one girl wrote her personal statement as if it were her suicide note saying how the world has no meaning to her cuz she probably won't get accepted.
i know what you're thinking, and the answer is yes. there are ppl like that.
as for me, I decided to keep it light. I have a picture of me and Ah-nold from ages ago, and I wrote in something like "to _____ university, i can vouch for this guy and that's why u should take him," above his signature.

Naked pics of myself.
And this essay:
It was almost 1 am of the day before the deadline. I had procrastinated; I definitely should have finished my applications earlier. As I looked at the blank Microsoft Word document, I made the mental note that, when in college, I wouldn’t let that happen again.
I had to write about something, as none of the essays proposed in the Supplement seemed to be good for expressing who I am. I tried writing about how 2003 was a year of low and highs for me, but I wanted something better. I wouldn’t have felt happy with writing something much like the essays that appear in my mediocre English textbook. I then thought I could write about how the South American Model United Nations was a very valuable experience for me, and about how it helped me understand concepts like globalization and economy, and become more conscious of world problems like poverty, hunger and war. It seemed like a good idea, but then my two essays would be too much about the activities I’ve been part of. Therefore, making an essay on my experiences in the Chemistry Olympiads was totally out of the picture. Making both essays about the same activity? That seemed like a really bad choice, as I believe I am much broader than that.
I have to recognize I am not a particularly creative person. I guess my right brain hemisphere has not received as much stimulation as my left. After all, I really appreciate my logical and analytical thinking skills, but I wouldn’t mind improving my creativity. I have realized that even when playing electric bass, my hobby, I stick to predefined scales and to licks I have heard before. Maybe that was getting in the way of coming up with a topic. Since it’s almost New Year, working to improve my creativity can be a resolution for 2004. I decided I would think about that later.
After several hours of looking at the blank page, coming up with a topic wasn’t becoming any easier. I decided to write about how I was feeling at the exact current moment, and about my difficulties in writing the essay. The words flowed rapidly, as my short-term memory revisited what just had happened seconds before.
It wasn’t too long before I realized how weird it was to talk about present in past tense. However, since it could be written in past tense, it was not present at all, even though it happened just seconds before. I stopped writing, and I wondered for a few minutes about the volatility of time: it just passed away and could never happen again. It could only be revisited as memories. These thoughts amused me for a while. How would this moment look in 30 seconds? In 30 minutes? In 30 years?
I soon woke up from these thoughts. The word count was close to 500; it was time to conclude my essay. It was late, and tomorrow was going to be a busy day.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: the following is a poem I’ve written that I believe further helps capture my feelings about the clarinet.
Inch by inch,
Gently tracing the
Darkened pad of her index finger
Across the chocolate leather stitching
Encasing his skin,
She feels him beckoning.
Gazing through dynamic eyes,
He entices her to release him.
She trembles as she tears off his covering,
And cradling him between her thighs,
She craves the chromatic thrill to come.
His body together again
Against her lips,
His glossy surface feels cold
From the few hours
She’d left him unaccompanied.
Seductive fingers wrapped around him,
Her warm embrace stimulates his firm skin,
And parting her lips
To enclose a fated ecstasy,
Her salt-sweet tongue
As it slides into place.
And launching electric pulses
Trill and linger on each note;
His hollow quality is lost
Quivering within her.
Alone they generate nothing,
He swallows her moist breath
Into harmony that
Nocturnal melodies dwindling after decrescendo,
She sinks back into the
With a silence
Interrupted by the resonating rhythm of

Dear Swarthmore: I would like to submit this supplementary essay because I believe this is a better indication of who I am as a student and a person. Thank you for your time and consideration.
"...Ironically, I was born bald. Apparently, nature has a sense of humor. In all of the photos taken during my infancy, my mother had scotch-taped a small pink bow to my smooth scalp. She wanted me to be raised like any other normal girl, even choosing the name “Jessica” because it was the most popular one that year. To compensate for the lack of hair, she dressed me to the nines in pink frills, lace, and satin. Every day I would walk into my private pre-school looking like a baseball bat wrapped in a doily..."
Voigtrob, this may sound crazy, but I think I have read your essay about how famous authors often have fruit in their names. and if a thousand monkeys had a thousand typewriters. and how your paragraphs are disproportionate.

Ctrain- I was thinking about drawing a cartoon of myself with the school shirt on too. I think it's a really cool idea, but I didn't have any time. What school did you do that for? I wish you good luck.
*sigh* My conservative parents wouldn't let me send in the poem...My dad said to my mother, "Your daughter's writing porno!" I attempted to defend myself and explain that I had merely written an innocent love poem for an English assignment, and it wasn't meant to be "disgusting," but they wouldn't hear it. "Maya, this isn't a love poem, this is hardcore sex! Get it out of here! Throw this crap away."
Though I now realize they are probably right about the fact that it doesn't belong in a college admissions supplement, I was very insulted by their comments. I also think it wouldn't have hurt to take a risk and send it into just one school. : (

I was talking to the Penn admissions officer that came to my school and for some weird reason she was mentioning some of the weird things people sent in. The weirdest one was the girl that sent in a bag of bread because she heard of the Penn tradition of throwing toast out on the field at football games. Another student at my school asked her if supplemental recs were alright and she said they were fine but not to go overboard. She told us of this one girl that sent in 34 recs. She got flat out denied because Penn though she was trying to cover something up by sending so many recs

With 3 internationals applying from this board alone, I have a feeling I'm not getting in, especially since I didn't have a chance to do any math/science extracurriculars in high school and scored a 5 on IB HL Math due to our class being assigned bad internal assessments.

how much extra stuff do people send to admissions?
I sent an extra rec from my employer + an extra essay describing my circumstances to some schools (two things extra at the most)
I recently did this big leadership project that I'm trying to focus the ec part of me on. I made the newspaper (a full page) complete with pics and an interview with me, and I also got on tv for some tv spots (5 min long tops). I was thinking if sending in the newspaper article and/or a copy of the tape would help me significantly? cuz i just mentioned ( i spent a paragraph explanation and focused my common app esssay on this experience, but it's kinda an experience that I think the adcoms would need to see pictures for. the pictures really kinda bring it home, so to speak. SO is 3-4 xtra stuff really going overboard? I think i'll stay away from sending it to columbia and yale, but what about princeton, dartmouth, cornell, penn, wustl, duke, and jhu?

William and Mary asks applicants to send in "something" on an 8 1/2"x 11" sheet of paper that gives further insight into the applicant as a person. "It doesn't even have to be comprised of words. Be creative. Make us laugh", is one of the things they specified concerning this supplimental submission. D sent in a photo of herself in her karate Kee, posed paper-doll style. She photoshoped out the background, then added various text boxes, corresponding to various body parts (don't get cute---there was nothing distasteful done). For instance, Pointing to head: text said, "mind like steel trap", Then other comments about hands, eyes, stomach, etc. She hopes it was clever enough to garner a chuckle. Who knows. We'll see.
