The university wants to enroll not just students who will excel in the classroom, but those who will make good campus leaders, roommates, and citizens. Penn wants to see students who have meaningful involvement in extracurricular activities that reflect their true passions and talents. The application essays are another important part of the admissions puzzle, both the standard Common Application essay and the Penn writing supplement. Make sure your supplemental essay is unique to Penn and not a generic essay that could be used for any school. The University of Pennsylvania also places value on letters of recommendation from your teachers, and your interview with an alumni volunteer. All of these qualitative measures help the admissions committee get to know you better.
Throughout his career, Williams, thought of his approach to poetry as a painterly deployment of words, saying explicitly in an interview, "I've attempted to fuse the poetry and painting, to make it the same thing….A design in the poem and a design in the picture should make them more or less the same thing."  However, in the case of his references to much earlier painters, culminating in Pictures from Brueghel (1962), his approach was more commentarial. Of this late phase of his work it has been claimed that “Williams saw these artists solving, in their own ways, the same problems that concerned him,”  but his engagement with them was at a distance.
