Supplemental Essay Type(s): Why
The single question being asked by American University is simple and straightforward: Why are you interested in attending? In short, this is the academic version of someone asking you to write a love letter — and if you’ve applied to other schools, you probably know the drill by now. Start on American’s website, look into the majors, classes, professors, campus, and anything else you can click your mouse or swipe your finger on. Use this information to paint a detailed picture for admissions of how American University can help you get where you want to go and, ultimately, why it’s the perfect fit for you!
