The Common App essay that got me into NYU

Hey guys. I had applied to NYU via the Early Decision cycle in November 2018. I did get in and that too with a fine amount of scholarship. So, I am showing my common app essay for your reference. Please don’t copy it, your essay tells about your personal story and the admissions officers are smart enough to judge if an essay relates to you or not by reading the other details that you provided on your application.

Heart bending ambient music

A few years back, my older brother showed me a video of a guy on YouTube producing ambient music. It was so surreal and touching to hear the beautiful melodies he made. I forgot his name and sometime later I tried to find him. By the time probably my brother might have also forgotten about him so I didn’t ask him. But accidentally I met the channel AmbienMusicalGenre. At that time it was not so fairly popular. I listened to one of its ambient mixes and was completely spellbound and mesmerized. Below are two of my favorites:

Japanese songs recommendations

Here are all the Japanese songs I listen to. My list is pretty short but I like each song very much. Most of the songs in the playlist below are from anime shows that I watched in the past. Do check out some songs from my playlist and let me know which one liked the most.

Horror movies recommendations

1. IT (2017)

Based on a horror novel by Stephen King, IT is an incredible movie. With top-notch visual effects and consistent amusing ambiance, IT is a pleasant terror to watch. It presents to you a group of somewhat super brave kids who have to face an evil lurking within the city. With a well-planned course of events and consistent terror and an epic finale, IT instills in you a really good terror.

2. The Cabin in the Woods (2011)

The Cabin in the Woods is a terrific horror movie starring Chris Hemsworth. Hell breaks upon a five-membered group who went on a little holiday. The movie kills characters pensively and dramatically. A terrific set of climaxes and an amusing end makes it a really good watch.

3. Insidious (2010)

Seeing a friend of mine be a real fan of the Insidious movie series, I decided to watch one of them. When I watched the first movie, I was petrified. Presenting you with a little fresh theory on ghosts, It presents a family of four stuck in a mess. Little by little, it terrifies you constantly and lands you with unexpected results till the end.

Re: Zero Review

Re: zero is undoubtedly one of the best anime of this season. It has blended many typical themes and cliches to create a new unique experience that makes one go head over heels for it. It used the overused concept of a time loop to create an awesomely unique experience for me. I had never thought of such a story being made of it. But in the end, I was mesmerized with it.
