This year, the prompts are the same as the previous cycle.
These essay options were created to provide countless opportunities for you to express your character, community, identity, and aspirations.
Discuss what you learned from the experience and how it affects you in your day-to-day life as well as its impact on your way of thinking.
Don’t focus on the setback itself; rather emphasize what you learned about yourself and how that event changed your perspective or behavior. Or that you want to make different decisions in the future?
Consider what your concerns about this problem reveal about the kind of person you are or hope to be.
Discuss what you did or what you do to find a solution. Can you come up with creative/effective/unique solutions to problems?
Although it may feel time consuming, each rendition of your essay should work to clarify your intentions while projecting something meaningful about yourself.
Your goal is to tell the admission committees something that is not already conveyed elsewhere in your application and express your individuality.
This is more open-ended version of the previous prompt.
It allows you to address something that didn’t sit right with your values, but doesn’t require you to have actively challenged the belief or idea.
