College of Saint Elizabeth 2019-20 Application Essay Question Explanation

The Requirements:  2 essays of 250 words each

Supplemental Essay Type(s): Why, Oddball

Why do you want to attend the College of Saint Elizabeth? (250 words)

A classic short why essay. Do some research on the College of Saint Elizabeth’s course offerings, campus, and extracurriculars; and then show admissions why CSE stands out from the crowd. Maybe you want to attend one of the first Catholic colleges in the United States to award degrees to women. Perhaps you’re from Philadelphia and Morristown is just far enough away from home, but not too far. No matter your reason, admissions just wants to know that you’ve thought this through and that, should you be accepted and decide to attend, you’ll be ready to hit the ground running next fall.

Pick a quote that describes a lot about you, and explain why you connect with it. (250 words)

For this prompt, we recommend setting a timer for five minutes and writing down every quote (even if paraphrased–though you’ll look it up later for accuracy) you can think of. No idea is too silly; just trust your gut! Recall the song lyrics that have stuck with you, your favorite Harry Potter passages, the little sayings your great uncle Bob used to repeat over and over. Next, identify the quote that you feel best describes you–whether that be a facet of your personality, character, drive, etc. Although you’ll be using someone else’s words, this is still an opportunity for you to reveal something new about who you are, what you value, or where you come from. Don’t forget to explain why you connect with your quote of choice. Admissions wants to get a peek into your brain–the way you think about yourself and even the world around you.
