The Requirements: One 250 word essay
Supplemental Essay Type(s): Activity
This prompt reminds us a lot of the Common Application’s prompt #6, which asks about a topic, idea, or concept that captivates you. So, our advice is the same: give admissions insight into not only what makes you tick, but also what piques your interest to dig deeper. Maybe it’s a book that you read over and over again, an artist who makes you see the world in a new way, or the court documents that you scour for new information. Admissions wants to better understand what intrigues you and why. The goal is to write an essay that reveals something new about you and demonstrates your thirst for knowledge. So, sharpen your pencils, it’s time to geek out!
