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.

Go to the essay tab on collegevine and select the school. Also on blog.collegevine.com they may have a undecided essay tips and tricks article.

Hope this helps and comment if you need clarification!
