01 BACON

Duke University
The alarm clock is, to many high school students, a wailing monstrosity whose purpose is to
torture all who are sleep-deprived. Those who believe this are misguided, and are simply viewing the
situation from a twisted perspective. For when these imprudent early-risers blearily rub their eyes
each morning, and search in vain for whatever is making that earsplitting noise, they are, without a
doubt, annoyed. Why?
It isn’t because the only thing they desire is to sleep a few extra hours, as many would
presume. no, these kids are groggy and irritable because they are waking up to what they think will be
another horribly boring day of school. If one of these foolish Sallys or Joes were, say, sleeping
comfortably on a Saturday morning, I could certainly see something different happening. A beautiful
breakfast of tantalizing vittles—eggs, hash browns, and the like—would be ready and waiting for
them on their kitchen tables. But the scrumptious delight to outshine them all would be a slab of
bacon, piled proudly for the taking. It would be that wafting, wondrous bacon smell that would draw
dear, sweet Sally abruptly from her slumber—long before an alarm clock has the chance to pierce the
air.
Oh, bacon: what a marvelous, glorious thing! I live for those heart-stoppingly good strips of
succulence, so crispy and crunchy, so packed with perfection. The thought of having a plate of bacon
every day, perhaps every school day, sends me into sheer waves of ecstasy!
To be sure, many others would also wax poetic about this lovely breakfast food. But precious
few would share this same zeal for learning. I, however, can smugly decree that I do regard both very
highly. I brightly waken every morning to the mellifluous joy that sounds from my alarm clock, a huge
smile plastered on my face, and the yearning to learn in my heart.
When I board my school bus Monday through Friday, it is still pitch black outside. Busmates
will groan about how even the day has not yet dragged itself out of bed; I only chuckle through their
thirty-minute rant fest as we chug down the freeway. Opting to be part of a faraway Magnet school,
after all, has its benefits. My peers may still not look forward to waking up earlier, but when we are all
together in a classroom, we take on the “bacon mentality.” I have the opportunity to choose from a
wealth of diverse classes, and love arriving to school each day with the prospect of having a new
Spanish History lesson—taught to me in Spanish, for a change. Teachers, driven by the enthusiasm of
their Magnet students, are inspired to create new classes for advanced students, including those who
have completed AP Spanish Literature and are still eager to learn more, or those who want to learn
about a specific aspect of a subject—we now have a Middle Eastern History class. not to be outdone,
the post-AP exam period of my English Language class included an intensive literature study, where
we laughed at good ol’ Yossarian in Catch-22, and developed a strong attachment to Jay gatsby. I’d
like to think that The Great Gatsby’s pursuit of Daisy is not unlike my own pursuit of bacon. I’ve
gobbled up new knowledge rapidly, hankering after it like any elusive bacon strip, and happily
digesting any new bits of information.
But six classes a year are simply not enough to satisfy my hunger for knowledge. Just as I eat
bacon all three meals of the day (when possible), I attempt to learn all days of the week. rather than
make another trip to some lackluster movie theatre on the weekend, I dedicate my time to reading
another good book, or reviewing Economics with my friends. But high school is starting to smell like
leftovers to me now; I want fresh, new, crisp learning. I want not to read a textbook written by a

renowned professor: I want to hear him speak directly. I’m ready for the university, and hunger for all
the new opportunities waiting for me! I’ve finished my breakfast, and now it’s time to get going to
school.

02 BEYOND PLUG-AND-CHUG MATH

MIT
I have always been a math-science girl. I sighed and sulked through classes on US History and
French in eager anticipation of the formulas and applications I would be learning later in the day. I
believe there are many factors which attribute to my success, two being my fascination and
persistence.
When I was seven I once asked what math was good for and why I should learn it. The answer
I received simply does not do math justice, “One day when you’re in line at the grocery store the
cashier will give you too little change and you’ll be glad you learned this.” now in calculus I see the
application of all these once foreign symbols, formulas, and letters. I am often amazed by the
calculations I am able to do using the cumulative information acquired from nearly 12 years of
education, such as how to maximize the volume of a box given a certain surface area. Math is not just
plug and chug as many view it but it requires creativity and thinking out of the box to solve the
problems encountered in the real world. Beauty lies in its simplicity and in the fact that proofs and
observations are what brought the golden rectangle from ancient greece, Pascal’s triangle, and the
Pythagorean Theorem as well as a host of other theorems, equations, and postulates. Math has made
the impossible possible and the once long and tedious, simple and quick. The genius of it is amazing
as well as the fact that any person is capable of applying and discovering it. I draw graphs and try to
make shapes from functions for fun, count to 10 to calm down, and save money at the store, too. For
all of these reasons and many more, I am fascinated by math.
I wasn’t always good at math, contrary to what students in my classes might say. When I first
showed interest in math in the 5th grade my parents laughed; middle school was even worse.
Incoming 6th graders were given a test on the second day of school and depending on their scores
were placed into a high or low speed math class. I was put in the slow speed math and missed a lot of
class my first year, as a result my grade drifted from a B to a C to a C-, then I got help. I knew I liked
math and I didn’t want to do bad in it so I bought books and hired my older brother to help me. I
eventually made it to a B+. Later, in the summer after my junior year, I took a course that covered
nearly a year of Calculus. I was told that if I decided to take Calculus AB, I would be bored, so I went
for a challenge. My strongest subject began to take up most of my time. I had to read review books,
go online for help, and stay in during nutrition and lunch for extra instruction. It was hard, but my
dedication paid off and I earned an A. This persistence and drive also help me excel in math.
