The Requirements: 1 essay of 250 words.
Syracuse wants to accept students from a wide range of backgrounds who will contribute to their community in a positive way, so tell admissions about a time when you persevered, challenged discrimination, learned a valuable lesson, or were inspired; how will you draw from your experiences to be a meaningful addition to the Syracuse student body? Admissions is giving you a broad range of topics to choose from, so take some time to meditate on your possible response before drafting.
Once you have a topic in mind, be sure to summarize your personal experience in as few words as possible; that way you’ll have plenty of room to discuss what it meant to you, what you took away from it, and how you will apply that lesson or insight to your time at Syracuse. Finally, make sure you include at least a few sentences about why Syracuse is a great fit for you (and vice versa!). Admissions wants to accept thoughtful, reflective, and open-minded individuals to campus, so show them that you fit the bill!
