Supplemental Essay Type(s): Why
Admissions wants to know where you see yourself in five or ten years because they want to invite movers and shakers to campus who are excited and motivated to turn their dreams into reality. The more specific details you can incorporate into your essay, the more sincere and personal it will feel (and be!). Maybe, in the future, you’ll be designing carbon negative buildings in major cities across the globe. How will The New School’s Architectural Design major set you up for success? Perhaps you want to have your own couture clothing line with more inclusive sizing. How will The New School’s Fashion Design major allow you to expand your skill set, network with other creatives, and launch your career? Admissions wants to know what you dream about and how attending The New School, specifically, will help you get there. How will your scholarly and social pursuits help you grow? Show admissions that The New School is the bridge between the person you are and the person you hope to be.
