Berry College 2019-20 Supplemental Essay Prompt Guide

Berry College 2019-20 Application Essay Question Explanation

The Requirements:  1 essay of 250 words; 1 essay of 500 words

Supplemental Essay Type(s): Why, Activity

Please briefly elaborate on one of your extracurricular activities or work experiences. (250 words)

This prompt is probably one that you’ve seen before and will see again. When approaching this essay, think about your favorite things to do outside of the classroom. What do you enjoy doing? If you had an extra hour in the week, what would you do with it? (Sleeping is not a good response here.) Maybe you would round up the kids in your neighborhood for a pick-up basketball game. Perhaps you would go to your aunt’s house to learn how to make her famous arancini con ragù (and impress all of your friends at your next dinner party). Maybe you would read the latest armchair sleuth Reddit thread and discuss the intricate details of the cold cases that keep you up at night. No matter what it may be, identify that activity and then show admissions why it’s important to you. Why does it bring you joy? What have you learned from it? Do you hope to continue this activity on campus next year? Offer admissions some insight into what makes you tick and you’ll be sure to stand out.

What are the characteristics of Berry College which lead you to apply (maximum 500 words)?

Odds are that you’ve seen this prompt before, and if not, one very much like it. The admissions department wants to know what about Berry College floats your boat. Is it the beautiful campus that is so close to home? Are you chomping at the bit to get involved in the Berry Outdoor Leadership Development (BOLD) program? Does Berry’s Animal Science major set you up perfectly to achieve your career goals? And, if so, how? The more details you can include in your response, the better!
