Santa Clara University supplemental essays?

Hey, I'm planning to apply to Santa Clara University! Can anyone guide me on what the supplemental essays are for the 2024 application and any advice on how to approach them? Thanks in advance!

Hello! First, it's important to note that Santa Clara's supplemental essay prompts can vary from year to year. You won't know for sure which prompts will be required for the 2024-2025 applications cycle until August 1st, 2024.

However, if you want to get a general sense of what to expect, you can check out CollegeVine's blog post breaking down this year's prompt: https://blog.collegevine.com/how-to-write-the-santa-clara-university-essays/. I'd just advise not actually writing your response until next year, as you don't want your hard work to go to waste if the prompt ends up changing.

When next year's prompts are officially released, remember that CollegeVine offers both free peer essay reviews and paid reviews by expert college admissions advisors. Sometimes, getting a second set of eyes on your writing is just the thing you need to take your response from good to great.

Good luck with your Santa Clara University application!
