Doing as much research as you can before sitting down to write your essay will allow you to tell a cohesive story about yourself while also ensuring that your essay isn’t redundant. Pour all of your academic focus into your answer to this question. What do you love about your chosen major and/or minor?

What resources are available to undergrads and how will they help you further develop your skills? The more detail you include, the more admissions will get to learn about you.
