UMD Complete the Sentence Prompts

Hi there! I'm applying to the University of Maryland and I'm a bit stuck on their 'complete the sentence' prompts. Can anyone give examples of how they've tackled this section in their application? I'd really appreciate any guidance!

Hi! Maryland's 'complete the sentence' prompts can be challenging, but are also a potentially fun part of the application, as they allow you to showcase your creativity and personality in just a few words. I understand why you might feel stuck, but remember that there's no one 'correct' way to approach it. The key is to be true to yourself and give the admissions committee a glimpse of who you are.

For specific guidance on how to do that, you can check out CollegeVine's breakdown of each 'complete the sentence' prompt: https://blog.collegevine.com/how-to-write-the-university-of-maryland-essays. If you're not sure if your answers are working, consider utilizing either CollegeVine's free peer essay review service or submitting your essay for a paid review by an expert college admissions advisor.

Overall, remember that you can be playful and whimsical with your answers, or treat the sentence as an opportunity to reveal a deeper aspect of yourself - there's no one right way to complete these sentences, and sometimes mixing up your tone can help make your application as a whole more engaging and well-rounded. What's most important is your responses truly reflecting your thoughts and experiences.

Best of luck with your application to the University of Maryland!
