Supplemental Essay Type(s): Why, Oddball
This is a classic Why essay if we’ve ever seen one. Why is Saint Elizabeth the school for you? Regardless of any long or short-standing personal connection you may have with the school, we still recommend starting with at least an hour to do some good old-fashioned research. Dig beyond the basic facts and figures to learn about your prospective major(s), uncover classes you want to take, delve into the contents of the school library, and/or peruse the list of clubs and volunteer opportunities. Next, you’ll want to paint a picture of your vision of the next four years and describe how a Saint Elizabeth education will fulfill those hopes. Then fill in the details with examples from your stellar research, and admissions is bound to be impressed!
This prompt is glorious in its infinite potential. You can choose to elaborate on anything about which you are passionate or to which you relate. Maybe you want to write about your connection to your favorite inspirational quote and how it gave you the push you needed to pursue your dreams (hopefully at Saint Elizabeth). Perhaps you want to share a quote about consciousness, something abstract that speaks to our shared humanity, a consistent subject of your digital artwork. What is important to you and what do you want to communicate about yourself to admissions through this quote?
