Texas A&M University 2020-21 Supplemental Essay Prompt Guide

Regular Decision: 

Texas A&M University 2020-21 Application Essay Question Explanation

The Requirements: 1 essay of roughly 1-1.5 pages

Supplemental Essay Type(s): Community, Common App overlap

First and foremost, don’t freak out when you see all of the prompts listed on the ApplyTexas application. There’s one essay for Texas A&M applicants on both the ApplyTexas and Coalition applications. Yes, you read that correctly. Texas A&M does not accept the Common App, so make sure you budget your time accordingly to get this supplement done. Anyone who plans to apply via the ApplyTexas platform should also check out our video on UT-Austin, which covers many additional ApplyTexas questions.

Average length is about a page to a page and a half.

Essay A – Required

Tell a story from your life, describing an experience that either demonstrates your character or helped to shape it.

This is what we call a wide open playing field. You could literally write about anything here because, let’s get real, if you’re not writing an essay that showcases your character, we’d better have a long chat. Since this prompt is so broad, we’d encourage you to recycle one of your best essays from another supplement or application that fits the criteria, so you’re not straining to wring the last drops of creativity from your brain. The only real requirement is that you tell a story that demonstrates who you are, so just make sure your essay has a clear personal narrative arc with a beginning, middle, and end. And of course: make sure you tell admissions something they don’t already know about your character and life experiences! 

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!
