Alright, so I have finished my 9 applications. I got a fee waiver from some top schools, giving me a decent amount of confidence going into this application cycle. However, I have decided that Penn is where I want to be next year... regardless of where else I may get in. I have also recently been convinced of the importance of the "Why Penn?" essay. As I want to give myself the greatest chance of getting in, I have decided to write one. I have the body written, and I think I have some pretty solid ideas laid out. I am having a miserable time writing a brief conclusion to sum it up though. For those of you who wrote this essay, how did you wrap it up with out horrible "penn, more than any other school can help me attain my dreams" cliches. I feel like the body is very much about Penn, but the conclusions I am coming up with could be about any school. What did you say in your conclusions???
