Hey there! I can understand why the supplemental essays might be making you nervous, but don't worry! Here are a few tips to help you out:

1. Be genuine: Write about topics that genuinely interest you or experiences that have shaped who you are. This will make your essays more engaging and easier to write.

2. Be specific: Focus on a particular aspect of WashU that appeals to you, such as a program, major, or a club. This will help demonstrate your interest in the school and how it aligns with your goals.

3. Show your personality: Let your authentic voice come through in your essays. Don't be afraid to be a little quirky or show your sense of humor.

4. Proofread and revise: Give yourself enough time to refine your essays and ask for feedback from teachers or peers.

Remember that the goal is to provide a more complete picture of who you are beyond your test scores and transcripts. Just relax, be yourself, and share your story. Good luck with your application!
