The Requirements: 1 essay of 500 words
Supplemental Essay Type(s): Leadership
This is your opportunity to not only show admissions that you’re dialed in and paying attention to what’s going on in society, but also demonstrate your creativity and vision. Take a little time to brainstorm issues that you consider to be some of the world’s most pressing challenges. Once you’ve identified one that you’d like to write about, think about the role you see yourself playing in addressing or solving it. Maybe you’re pursuing a major in Environmental Sciences because you hope to help combat global warming and prevent associated climate disasters. Or perhaps you’re pursuing a major in Criminology and Justice Studies because you hope to play a role in dismantling the prison industrial complex. Remember that LMU wants to know how your past and their education will aid you in addressing this societal challenge, so don’t skimp on how your experiences relate to this mission and how your LMU experience (courses, professors, clubs, the school’s Jesuit orientation) will set you up for success.
