Mills College 2020-21 Application Essay Question Explanation

The Requirements:  1 essay of 250 words

Supplemental Essay Type(s): Activity

Please briefly elaborate on one of your extracurricular activities or work experiences. (250 words)

This prompt is probably one that you’ve seen before and will see again. When approaching this essay, we encourage you to think about your favorite things to do outside of the classroom. What brings you joy? If you had an extra hour in the week, what would you do with it? Maybe you would round up the kids in your neighborhood for a pick-up soccer game. Perhaps you would go to your uncle’s house to learn how to make his famous Tom yum goong. Maybe you would plant more vegetables in your garden and see if you could finally grow some finicky eggplant. No matter what it may be, identify that activity and then show admissions why it’s important to you. Why does it make you happy? What have you learned from it? Do you hope to continue this activity on campus next year? Offer the admissions department at Mills College some insight into what makes you tick and you’ll be sure to stand out.

Please note: the information below relates to last year's essay prompts. We are going to update this guide with the prompts for 2021-22 as soon as they become available. Check back soon!
