University of Minnesota Twin Cities 2022-23 Application Essay Question Explanations

The Requirements: 1 essay of up to 150 words

Supplemental Essay Type(s): Why, Community

The University of Minnesota’s brief supplement asks you to envision your life on campus, both as a student and community member. The only way to do that, dear students, is to learn about the school. So set aside some quality time to gather information any way you can: campus tour, phone call with a professor, or even reading through the school website. So prepare to read our guide and then set aside a good hour or so to get your research on.

Please include an explanation of why you would like to study the major(s) you have selected. You may also use this space to indicate your interest in other major(s) in the colleges listed above. (Maximum 150 words)

We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again. The three steps to writing a good Why essay are research, research, and research. Spend some quality time on the school website (or visit campus, if you can) and get to know the University of Minnesota beyond the basic facts and figures. In this case, you’ll want to focus on your major (or majors) of choice. Learn all about the department, faculty, notable alumni, and any special programs or opportunities for undergrads. Jot down the details that excite and appeal to you. At the end of your research sesh, you should have a good constellation of information that will show admissions exactly why you and the University of Minnesota were meant to be. And don’t be afraid to get enthusiastic and share some of your personal story. Maybe your family’s tendency to move around has made you think a lot about what makes a house a home, and the University of Minnesota’s Housing Studies program provides an ideal outlet for your musings. To get this essay right, you need to go beyond listing the reasons you like the program, and make a compelling case for exactly why you and your program of choice are a match made in heaven.

We try our best to make sure our guides are as up to date as possible, but we still recommend confirming each prompt and word count with the school in question.
