How do I write an essay that stands out when applying to college undecided?(ESPECIALLY FOR THE UIUC PROMPT)
I am entering my senior year and I am still undecided on what I want to do. I will most likely apply undecided to most schools like UIUC which is my target school and probably the school that I want to go to the most. However the essay prompt for UIUC asks "Explain your interest in the major you selected and describe how you have recently explored or developed this interest inside and/or outside the classroom".
I know I want to do something science related possibly physical therapy however I am wondering how I write an essay to prompts like UIUC and make sure I stand out. Thank you.

How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
