We take every aspect of your personal profile into consideration when calculating your admissions chances.
Applicants must submit an admission essay or personal statement. We encourage you to use this as an opportunity to tell us something about yourself that isn‘t reflected in the rest of your application. Typical essays range from about 250 - 500 words in length.
Consider one of the following topics:
Some students have a background, identify, interest or talent that is so meaningful they believe their application would be incomplete without it. If this sounds like you, then please share your story.
The lessons we take from obstacles we encounter can be fundamental to later success. Recount a time when you faced a challenge, setback, or failure. How did it affect you, and what did you learn from the experience?
Discuss an accomplishment, event or realization that sparked a period of personal growth and a new understanding of yourself and others.
Share an essay on any topic of your choice. It can be one you’ve already written, one that responds to a different prompt, or one of your own design.
