Does University of Massachusetts Amherst have supplemental essays?

Hey guys! I'm looking into the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and I'm curious about the application process. Do they require any supplemental essays? If so, what are the prompts and how should I approach them?

Hey there! Traditionally, UMass Amherst does have supplemental essays as part of their application process. That being said, I can't speak for every specific application cycle, so it's super important you check on their admissions website, as well as the Common App, to see if there are essays.

In terms of how should you go about responding to the prompts, I don't know if I'm the best person to speak on that as I've never applied to UMass Amherst, but I can say that Collegevine has some great resources for this purpose. Specifically, [this post] (https://blog.collegevine.com/how-to-write-the-umass-amherst-essays) explains how to write the UMass Amherst essays and provides great step-by-step approaches to the essays. Definitely check it out!
