The longer of the two Georgetown essays is
one page, single spaced. Stay tuned. I am sharing a successful student essay excerpt

and hit the bell. The prompt the student responded to basically
allowed them to adapt most of the essay from Common App. Stay tuned and I will share excerpts and why
it worked and how. Hi, I’m dr Josie with Write Your Acceptance. With hundreds of students in college or graduates
by now, I know how to have the admission officers route for you and you be as memorable as possible. Stay tuned. All right, so here’s the prompt so you know
exactly what the student was responding to. As Georgetown is a diverse community, the
admissions committee would like to know more about you in your own words. Please submit a brief essay, either personal
or creative, which you feel best describes you. So here we go. Here’s the beginning. With long angular green leaves meeting an
oval yellow star of the show, the pineapple shapes my existence. Dating back to colonial America, the pineapple
represents warmth and hospitality. This sweet tangy, pinchy tropical fruit follows
me everywhere. Nicknamed Mr. Pina, pineapple in Spanish,
my dad works at Baptist Hospital in Miami, and their logo is a pineapple. With pineapple paraphernalia drowning our
home decor, I am surrounded by the pineapple. The student is interested in studying hospital
administration. On paper, not a very kind of snazzy drama
fields major, so we wanted to kind of offer some estrangement for engagement. You wanted to kind of find a hook or an entryway
that was very image-driven. This incorporates multiple senses, right? If you like pineapple, if you don’t like pineapple,
you had that tangy kind of sense in your mouth. As you kind of are visually putting together,
assembling the pineapple with the description in the beginning, you also have some kind
of authority established by informing the reader about colonial America and its exchanges
with a pineapple. Very brief one-liners, right, but you’re doing
a lot at the beginning that really is strangers, so to engage, you’re really kind of confusing
the reader a little bit to kind of pique their interest and then they kind of remain invested
with you. The middle of the essay is kind of the student
in action, so showing minimal but showing actual experience that she has in hospital
management and hospitality, and how that kind of is deepening or gearing up, inspiring her
pursuit of the major in college. And so I started reading the middle. Before hurricane Maria, I compartmentalize
my academics and volunteer interest in healthcare for my extracurricular. However, hurricane Maria wreaked devastation
and it is during episodes of crisis that my dad and his hospital personnel do their silent
hero work. While my dad worked around the clock in the
command center, I refused to stand on the sidelines. Armed my summer volunteer experience and clipboard,
I assisted in the logistics and lodging for all hospital staff working during and post
the hurricane. My crisis management work during the hurricane,
however, pale against the firsthand reports I learned from my friend Luciana. Shortly after the hurricane, Lucy moved to
Miami and joined our volleyball team. She was fun and hardworking, and yet at times
a somber stare over to her face, consumed by hurricane flashbacks. Wanting to extend home to her I brought her
a pineapple-designed Penelope Pewter notebook. Although a brief friendship as she returned
to Puerto Rico a few months later, she left me with stories of broken down and understaffed
medical facilities that were unable to provide devastated communities with quality care. In this section you have both the student
inaction, the student making a social contribution, and the student kind of nurturing a personal
relationship. And bonus, she added the pineapple yet again. So in case we forgot about the beginning,
we’re all kind of threading that theme of hospitality through the logo throughout the
essay. Do you have an idea for your essay but it’s
not there yet? Comment below. I’d love to help you out. The ending is this kind of aspirational bonus. This is why Georgetown education would be
the education for me. It’s kind of a little “Why Usy” at the end. This is just kind of what straight up baller
students do. All right, so here we go. As a Hoya in health studies, I’d be able to
deepen my academic training with real world experiences. For instance, the senior internship where
student work with and learn from senior executives of the MedStar Georgetown University Hospital. Further, I believe a comprehensive college
experience may not be complete without a study abroad experience. I am inspired by the story shared by the Hoyas
blog, Stories Beyond the Hilltop, and aspire to represent Georgetown with pride on an international
stage. My experiences to date with healthcare and
with the pineapple have shaped my character, my family life, and my calling. No matter how you slice it, I’ve learned the
profound need for dedicated professionals to enter this special industry and I strive
to one day follow in my dad’s footsteps and become Ms. Pineapple with the elite preparation
only Georgetown could provide. Notice the kind of fun phrasing, no matter
how you slice it, right? We come back to the pineapple. The student brought in very specific Georgetown-driven
research, which is key, so if you want to bring in something about how the institution,
no matter what school it is, is going to be a good fit, instead of brand name alone or
how you love that city, bring in something research-driven. Really see yourself living and learning in
that space and you sell it kind of in a more convincing, compelling way. Want more topic samples and guidance? I have my free college essay guide in the
