Fordham University 2022-23 Application Essay Explanations

The Requirements: 1 short essay of 150 words

Supplemental Essay Type(s): Community

At Fordham, we expect students to care for and engage with their communities. Please share a specific instance in which you challenged yourself or stepped out of your comfort zone in order to impact your community (for example, your family, friend group, high school, or town). Or, share a way you hope to do so at Fordham.

Admissions officers want to accept students who are eager to engage with the Fordham community, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that they are interested to hear about a time when you stepped outside of your comfort zone for the betterment of a cause you care about. What about your history, experiences, perspectives, or talents might be worth highlighting for an admissions officer? And how can the experience, perspective, or talent you choose enrich the environment at Fordham? Maybe you challenged your social anxiety to organize a picket or protest this summer to show up for reproductive rights. How will you bring people together on campus? Perhaps when your family faced financial hardship, you picked up extra shifts at your local pizza joint to make sure your younger siblings could still participate in recreational sports. Will you be a natural leader in group projects? Be sure to connect your personal story to a future vision of yourself at Fordham.
