This is a fairly intense topic and I’ll provide extensive prep material on the blog. With that said, a few pieces of information on the topic:
- Students can choose from one these prompts. Every universty’s application will have the “Share an essay on any topic of your choice” option so you’re not required to choose one of these.
- The word count limit is 650. Minimum 250. May vary slightly, but for the most part, it’s fairly uniform.
- When writing the essay, yes, think of a good story to tell, but more importantly, think of the 3-5 personality traits you want to convey. Remember, your essay is the reader’s first introduction to you as a person, they only know your statistics & a list of extracurriculars, but they have no idea if you’re funny or quirky or if you want to rule the world.
