Harvard Common App questions?

Hi everyone, I'm applying to Harvard through the Common App and I'm noticing that there are additional supplement questions. Does anyone have any tips on how to tackle these? Are there any specific topics they're looking for, or is it generally open-ended?

Hello! Harvard's additional supplement questions are indeed an important part of the application process, and I'm glad you're seeking input on how to approach them. CollegeVine has an article breaking down Harvard's supplemental essays, which you can find here: https://blog.collegevine.com/how-to-write-the-harvard-university-essays

Remember, there's no specific topic or formula that Harvard is looking for in your responses. The most important thing is to be genuine, thoughtful, and reflective, showcasing your unique experiences and perspectives. Good luck with your application!
