    In the US the essay we have to do is different, but I wanted to get opinions on what to write about. I can't decide between the following topics.

    Topic #1. My experience with the Youth Orchestra- Starting from the least advanced ensemble and working up to the top, and my experience helping them with a grant.

    Topic #2. My experience with the bank and my dad. When my Dad was the custodial on my bank account, the balance was lowering every other month, unknown to me, until I received a notice saying my balance was close to having my account closed...

    Topic #3. Fighting off two major viruses at the same time and missing 2 weeks of school, but not allowing my GPA/Rand to suffer.

    * I'm sorry f this is in the wrong location, I was slightly confused on where to post this, as it is not an actual written essay.*

    Topic #1 seems to me to present the most opportunities for positive writing while demonstrating persistence, focus, and all those other qualities admissions tutors look for.
