Getting the UT Austin Supplements Right: Tips?

Hey everyone, so I'm starting to work on my essays for UT Austin and feeling the pressure to nail it. Can anyone share their experiences or tips on how to approach the supplemental essays specifically for UT Austin? Are there certain angles or themes that really resonate with their admissions team? Thanks a bunch!

Hey there! My kid applied to UT Austin a couple of years ago, and one thing that really helped was focusing on specific experiences that highlighted his leadership and initiative. UT values students who can demonstrate their contributions to their community. For instance, my son volunteered to organize a community clean-up, which gave him a great talking point about leadership and local engagement in his essay. Don't just list your achievements; tell a story that shows your values and how they align with UT's mission. And of course, proofreading is key! Best of luck with your application!
