Georgetown Application Supplement

Hey guys! I'm working on my Georgetown application and I'm not quite sure how to approach the supplemental section. What type of information should I be including, and what should I highlight in order to stand out to the admissions committee? Would love some advice from those with experience. Thank you!

Hey! I'm glad you're looking for advice on tackling Georgetown's supplemental section. The key is to be genuine and focus on aspects of your life that align with Georgetown's values, such as leadership and community engagement. When writing your essays, make sure they showcase your unique experiences, perspective, and strengths.

For instance, if you've been involved in a meaningful extracurricular activity, you might want to write about how it has shaped you and contributed to your personal growth. Alternatively, you could discuss a challenge or question you've faced, and share how addressing it has impacted your worldview or future goals.

When trying to stand out, remember that it's not always about listing accolades but rather showcasing your personality and what you can bring to Georgetown's community. Make your essays memorable by telling specific stories and anecdotes that provide insight into who you are as an individual. Lastly, be sure to proofread and polish your responses to make a great impression!
