Sample Essay on an Ethical Dilemma

It's much harder to explain what sets apart a great essay from a mediocre one than it is to simply read a successful sample essay. Here's an essay that really does speak for itself, immediately bringing us along to experience the ethical dilemma that this student faced. Not only does she draw us into her struggle, but she comes out having made the best decision for herself and her school. While the topic can seem risky, it clearly conveys her strength of character and ability to realize how the decisions she makes can impact various lives. And which college wouldn't want those qualities on its campus?

I sat in my principal’s office along with two friends, wondering if I was making a serious mistake. My principal stared at us from across his desk and adjusted his glasses.

“Why are you all here?”

I hesitantly said, “We want to talk to you about plagiarism.”

One of our classmates, an extremely bright student capable of achieving excellent grades without cheating, had lifted a full lab report from the internet for our chemistry assignment. She was a friend of mine and we were often lab partners who enjoyed discussing the orbital distribution of electrons and the effects of a water molecule’s polarity. A week earlier I had sat at my desk reading her lab report, growing evermore frustrated and angry. The level of analysis in the report transcended anything she could have come up with on her own. No sophomore I knew could write as she had, and it did not appear to be written in her style. My classmates and I had spent hours upon hours working on the same report that we soon discovered she had simply copied and pasted from different websites.

I am a naturally empathetic person and pride myself on my loyalty to friends. I have made some great sacrifices on behalf of those close to me and initially wanted to keep this particular issue between me and my friend. When I approached her about this, she refused to listen to me. I suggested she simply re-do the report on her own and turn in a new draft, but she dismissed me. When I asked her again later to reconsider resolving this on her own, she accused me of ridiculous claims.

All the people I had asked for advice—my parents, my friends, even a teacher—had given me different suggestions. I’m not a confrontational person and try not to judge others, especially since I have made foolish mistakes in the past and have also at times stood on the sidelines in the face of injustice, waiting for someone else to step forward. But this plagiarism was so blatant, so in our faces, and our principal had just recently spoken to us about our honor code, which we felt would be relegated to a bankrupt phrase unless we, well, honored it here. Ultimately, my classmates and I agreed that school and the pressures to perform would turn into a charade if we ignored this.

As we sat in his office, we had to take our principal’s earlier discussion about moral dilemmas and apply it to an actual situation. If there is one thing in life I value most it is honesty. Each person has the responsibility to approach the many challenges he or she encounters with integrity—and just as important, each person has choice. My friend who had plagiarized was cheating her classmates, herself, and our school. And she was unwilling to listen to any of us, knowing that her grade would affect ours. So we made the difficult decision.

When our discussion with the principal came to an end, he said, “You were right to come to me.” Our classmate who had plagiarizedwas reprimanded and ultimately apologized to all of us.

“I’m sorry to have put you through that,” she later told me.

“I’m sorry, too.” Because even though I know we did the right thing, it didn’t always feel that way.

Hundreds of Writing Supplements Still Not Live on the Common App

By now, we've all gotten used to the fact that not all the writing supplements will be live on the Common App at once as originally stated. According to a recent posting on the Common App's Facebook page, the technical issues are individual issues that are being worked on. Hopefully that means these will all be resolved soon:

Thanks to everyone who has been contacting the Help Center with their questions. We're hearing about problems with logins, passwords, and green checks. These issues are not systematic. Rather, they are affecting individual users. Of course, if you're one of those users, it's pretty frustrating. We're working hard to get you a solution.

In the meantime, College Essay Organizer is keeping you up-to-date on the schools that have released their 2013-2014 essay questions. Isn't it nice to not have to keep going back to the site to see if a supplement is finally up?

Not All Writing Supplements will be Available on August 1

We're just a few nights away from the Common App going live on August 1, and many of us are still wondering what will happen. The Common App has promised that all supplemental essays will go live on August 1 this season despite that not being the case in previous years. Nonetheless, its June 14 posting on its facebook page stated the following:

Since many of you have asked: Yes, all Writing Supplement questions will go live for all members when CA4 launches on August 1.

Today's posting suggests that this will no longer be the case:

On August 1, CA4 will launch and officially become the 2013-14 Common Application. It's hard to overstate the magnitude of change we're implementing for our 517 member colleges. To make sure their individual Questions and Writing Supplements work as they should, we're providing additional testing time for any college that needs it. To be clear, students will be able to access and work through every page of every screen within the Common App itself. College pages that are still in testing will display a message requesting students to check back later. Thank you in advance for your patience as we help our member colleges to put the finishing touches on their good work.

So, there we have it. The release of supplemental essay questions may once again be spread out. Whatever the case may be, we'll be updating them in your College Essay Organizer accounts as they become available, and we can't wait to get started!

Tufts University Updated its Essay Questions for 2013-2014 Season

Tufts recently updated its website here with the essay questions for the Class of 2018. There are some fun and creative new questions like, "Celebrate your nerdy side," so definitely check out the post, or log into College Essay Organizer to see the questions in your account. Our researchers ran into some confusion, however, when trying to confirm whether or not the essays were indeed for students applying for fall 2014. Here's the email response we received from the Tufts Admissions Office:

Thank you for your interest in Tufts University. The questions on our website currently are the questions that were asked of applying students last year. The questions should be updated by the end of the summer. In addition to the common app essay, the updated questions will be all of the questions our applying students are required to answer and will be the same as those posted on the common app.

I hope this was helpful. We wish you well on your college search. Tufts University Undergraduate Admissions

This definitely had us worried for a moment, but then we came back to our senses. After all, the website is clearly updated! Another phone call to the Admissions Office clarified this, and we finally got confirmation that the questions were indeed up-to-date. And the best part is that as long as you have a College Essay Organizer account, you don't have to deal with any of that!
