college application essays : broad topics

These are not specific college application essay topics but rather broad ones, so that you can provide as much material as you can. The more you have, the better your chances to discover something special in it.

Growth and Development

Think of events and scenarios to show how you have changed. Well, it does not have to be a revolutionary change – any small on counts. It does not matter if changes were sudden and abrupt or gradual.

Goals – personal, academic, career

Think of all three categories as much as you can. You might come up with specific and “realistic” responses, but you might also come up with hazy, fuzzy, “wild” daydreams. Do not dismiss any of them.

Role Models and Influence

Think of the forces that shaped you. You don’t have to describe them in great detail; it’s you who colleges are interested in. Think of how these shaped you, how you changed under their influence.


These do not have to be the most impressive ones by mainstream standards. It’s important to choose the really meaningful to you, no matter how small and unimportant they might seem to the conventional Bulgarian audience. They might be about meals you have cooked or the day you learned to tie your shoelaces. Anything that has brought you satisfaction and pride counts.

Hobbies and Interests

Don’t just list them. Elaborate on them. Include even the ones you have not had the chance to pursue.

Childhood Experiences

Think of your most vivid childhood memories. Then pick out the ones that can be related to who you are today.

Your Favourite …

Book, character, historical figure … anything. I’d like to hear of as many favourites as possible.
