This is a test. I’m going to put a list of words and I want you to come up with at least seven synonyms for each of them. Good luck.
Now, I want you to pretend that you are me and describe your experience during a challenging time in your life and explain how you grew personally, either despite this challenge or because of it and I want you to do it in 300 words or less. Oh, and because you’re me, you have to be worrying the entire time about what the essay readers will get out of this essay and how it pits you against other applicants, and you have to be honest and true to your own feelings because you would hate to get rejected for not being yourself.
P.S. The paragraph above is 103 words, in case you were wondering what 300 words looks like.
