We've got you covered.
Many colleges and universities require students to submit supplemental essays along with their main personal statement. The essays they require vary greatly in length, prompt, and theme. The Babson College 2017-18 supplement stands out from the crowd, because students are given the option to choose between submitting an essay or a video!
The supplement reads:
“Life is a collection of moments, some random, some significant. Right now, you are applying to Babson College. What moment led you here?
We invite you to submit your answer in either essay OR video format. If you choose to submit a video, please limit your response to a 1-minute video, which can be submitted via a shared link to YouTube or another video hosting website. (500 words maximum)”
This option gives students the opportunity to respond in a way that best reflects their interests, talents, and skillz. Our advice would be to choose the medium you feel most comfortable with and get funky with it!
Babson College also asks students to respond to a pretty common supplemental essay prompt (just like UVA):
Why are you interested in Babson College (200 word maximum)?
