Applicants are then invited to provide an optional short essay of words to reflect on their chosen line and how it has meaning for them. This supplement falls into the latter category: it is optional in name only. This is a great prompt for two reasons. First, it does a wonderful job of introducing students to Bowdoin. In this short piece, you learn that Bowdoin has over a century of history, that it is defined by its community, that it places value in both humanity and the Earth. Second, the prompt gives applicants so much freedom to provide an answer that is deeply personal.
Debby Bennit, 24, Fairless Hills, Pennsylvania. I got an assignment for a book review, and I decided to try Essayforme. The main problem was that the remaining deadline was 12 hours (yeah, I wasted too much time), and the book at my surprise had 250 pages. Physically, it was not possible for me to do it, and I did not want a failing grade. I contacted support asking whether they have an expert in Economics (that is the subject I major in and had an assignment on). They took a couple of minutes to check and confirmed that there is an available expert for me. Later I double checked with the writer whether he had read the book I needed, and he confirmed. That was just great, he did it even faster, so I had time to check and left all my worries behind. I liked the experience, will try again the next time.
