Hi there! I'm glad to hear that you're applying to Syracuse University. In addition to your main personal statement, you'll have to write one supplemental essay which is specific to Syracuse, which relates to overcoming challenges. You can read up on how to tackle this essay on CollegeVine's blog: https://blog.collegevine.com/how-to-write-the-syracuse-university-essays.

Additionally, remember that CollegeVine offers both a free peer essay review service and paid reviews by expert college admissions advisors. Sometimes, a second set of eyes is just the thing that will take your essay from good to great.

Best of luck with your Syracuse application!
