Hofstra University 2023-24 Application Essay Question Explanations

The Requirements: 1 essay of 500 words

Supplemental Essay Type(s): Why

Why are you applying to Hofstra? (500 word maximum.)

Hofstra wants to know why you want to give them your final Bachelor rose. Do you love their smile? Did you have an instant connection when they got out of the limo? So many potential reasons… For this essay, let’s not only focus on the features of Hofstra (the fact that they’re the largest private university in Long Island and that they offer impressive graduate programs), but also explore why you’re a great fit for them! Start with some research on their website. Are there clubs that you could see yourself joining? Do they have a stellar Community Health B.S. program? Don’t be shy when it comes to naming specific professors or course offerings–admissions wants to know that you’ve done your homework. Next, explain why you two are a match made in university heaven. Maybe you’re from California and long for an East Coast winter; or perhaps you’re a local who wants to stay nearby for Sunday dinners with the family. Whatever your reasons for choosing Hofstra, make sure that they know you’ve thought this through and that you think what they have to offer is the perfect stepping stone to your future.
