Choose the day,
Choose the sign of the day.
The day’s divinity,
the first thing I see,
a crazy world that beckons me.
As I stand forth today in my infancy, I wish to seek—
seek the knowledge which I must find for I must be in control of thee.
The power to control oneself and the ones beside me,
For if I not have the ultimate control rival that of Satan.
This is the apocalypse. Apocalypse not of the world but that of my world, my inner feelings my dreams, my ambitions.
Ambition, Greed, Envy, Anger and Arrogance are the most powerful emotions known to man. They were prevalent with the stone age man and they will remain as long as man continues to exist. They are experienced by the psychopath to the holy Pope himself. I have unfortunately or fortunately, encountered all.
Ambition . . . will I stop at nothing to achieve my ambition, my goals, my sole purpose of existence? Ethics and morals might stand between me and ambition but what am I to do? When you’re three you’re taught to distinguish right from wrong, but who are they to make that distinction? You’re tutored morals yet you’re not told of stronger emotions that question the bounds of morality.
Does greed have anything to do with ambition? Greed is ambition, ambition is greed. Ambition helps to create a sense of worth, the want to do better than the one beside you. The need, the greed to do better than the one before you. Greed is good, greed is right , greed works. Greed for knowledge, life, power, money, helps to create a balance between the strong and the weak.
A wise man once said: "Envy is the greatest sin." This wise man was a fool. He failed to acknowledge that it is envy which helps a man pursue greater goals. It is due to the fact that another man, a mere mortal as compared to the strong man has surpassed him and he rightfully wants his place back. Progress in society is a result of man’s greed, ambition and the most inconspicuous of them all, envy.
Anger is an emotion when controlled helps to get in touch with inner feelings. It channels the mind, clears ambiguous thoughts and helps focus on a clear objective.

- MIT Admissions Essay I may seem to be someone with many unconnected facets and talents once you have read all the other essays on this application. This essay is intended to slap together a few of the pieces of myself that I have displayed here. The human race is immortal ( that was a doozy wasn't it ). There is nothing that forces us to decay into old age and die, this is merely our body destroying itself once our purpose ( reproduction ) is complete. Evolution not only did not bother to select against genes that kill off people past 40, but to some degree selected for such genes: the faster we go through generations, the faster we evolve....

- Making the Connections The human race is immortal. There is nothing that forces us to decay into old age and die, this is merely our body destroying itself once our purpose ( reproduction ) is complete. Evolution not only did not bother to select against genes that kill off people past 40, but to some degree selected for such genes: the faster we go through generations, the faster we evolve. If the genes that cause the changes we associate with old age were suppressed in some chemical way, we would be capable of eternal life.... [tags: College Admissions Essays]

- She is my Hero Stepping out of the clinic into the broad daylight, tears ran down her face. She had actually done it. She had an abortion. She climbed into the back seat of the family station wagon and listened to the silence. What had she done. When most girls write about their mothers they talk about how wonderful of a childhood they had being raised by such a great woman. They talk about her accomplishments and how they want to grow up and be just like her. They talk about the soup sick babble that every "perfect" family has to offer....

- My Personal Challenge The personal challenge that I faced mainly dealt with my health. Ever since I was child, I was very sick physically. The doctor recommended that I not play or participate in any type of sports because of my poor health. This led to a lack of confidence in myself to perform my best. I have always thought that there was a barrier somewhere in my life, and I could not pass that barrier because if I did then my life would certainly be in ruins. I was raised with the philosophies of the Chinese.... [tags: College Admissions Essays]

- MBA Admissions Essays - An Entrepreneurial Passion My love for business is not something I was born with. It took over a decade of experience and exploration to discover my passion. This discovery began ten years ago when I accepted a position at The Pitney Bowes Corporation. My job was to make unsolicited phone calls to prospective businesses in order to sell our base model postage meter. All that was required was reading a script, word for word, to potential buyers. Yet, after a week of working at Pitney Bowes, I still didn't know important details about the meter, like what it looked like, and how it actually operated.... [tags: MBA College Admissions Essays]

- Mrs. Fearrington is probably the only teacher who is able to make the events leading to the ratification of the Constitution into an engaging narrative. And she did that with every historical event of the United States, from Bacon's Rebellion, to The Treaty of Versailles, to McCarthyism. She keeps all of her students attentive and interested. She was so comfortable with the material she taught that we also became comfortable with it. And because we were so comfortable with the class, we were also very comfortable with her....

- I Look Great in Ivy. Discovering and choosing a university that fulfills all of my needs was a rigorous yet exciting task. The Ivy U clearly emerged as the best choice for me and I, as a great match for the university. After visiting the campus, reading the information pamphlet, and researching the university Web site, I realize that Ivy offers what I hope to gain from my college experience. In return, I will contribute to the university as a person with leadership qualities who takes initiative and enjoys participating in school events.... [tags: College Admissions Essays]

- Learning is What I Do Best I could tell you a heartfelt, sentimental, poignant story about first seeing a Harvard refrigerator magnet and feeling my first deep emotions stirring somewhere inside my spleen. Or I could meticulously paraphrase the numerous brochures and articles about Harvard that I have perused. Yet another option would be to rent a small airplane and skywrite, "I want to go to Harvard," in colorful pollutants. And I probably would resort to one of these strategies, had I not some real incentives to attend Harvard.... [tags: College Admissions Essays]

- Remembering Mom The memory of that Christmas Eve years ago still lingers in my mind. Who would have known that a simple candle made of wax and wick would change my way of thinking forever... Christmas Eve was a special time for Momma and Poppa. Even though there never was enough money to go down to the neighborhood stores to buy presents, Momma and Poppa always made sure I had one present on Christmas morning. In years past I had received a doll made from worn out clothing, with a painted face and hair of yarn.... [tags: College Admissions Essays]

- Admissions Essay - The Art of Medicine Once upon a time, it seems, physicians were wise and good, and medicine was an art. That's the feeling I get reading from the Chahar Maqala, tales from a time when doctors diagnosed lovesick princes from a urine sample, a pulse, and a review of local geography. American medicine in the late 20th century seems considerably less romantic. Protocols and seven-minute patient visits are supposed to leave physicians tracking blood pressure readings and calibrating Prozac prescriptions.... [tags: Medicine College Admissions Essays]

I want to be the best. The best history has recorded or ever will.The tormenting desire to be the best–anything else is mere faade. These ruthless emotions hold the key. The key to the gateway of another dimension is what propels me to where I want to be, where I should be, where I will be . . . THE GREATEST.
This is not the perfect college admissions essay, but it was good enough for Harvard University.
