This is your chance to give us a better idea of who you are and what is truly important to you. Your submission should be at least 250 words in length.
Note: Your personal statement/essay is not required to submit your application. You can submit your statement/essay at any time to email@example.com or by uploading it later (you will receive instructions via email upon submitting your application.)
Please select one of the options below and follow the appropriate instructions:
Submit a copy of a paper that you‘ve written for class in the past year. Your paper should include the grade and the teacher comments.
Write about a topic of your choice (i.e. an important person or event that has impacted your life; a story about your background, identity, talent; a challenge in your life and how you have overcome it, etc.).
Discuss how an education at Le Moyne College will help you achieve your long-term goals.
The essay demonstrates your ability to write clearly and concisely on a selected topic and helps you distinguish yourself in your own voice. What do you want the readers of your application to know about you apart from courses, grades, and test scores? Choose the option that best helps you answer that question and write an essay of no more than 650 words, using the prompt to inspire and structure your response. Remember: 650 words is your limit, not your goal. Use the full range if you need it, but don‘t feel obligated to do so.
Some students have a background, identity, 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?
Reflect on a time when you questioned or challenged a belief or idea. What prompted your thinking? What was the outcome?
Reflect on something that someone has done for you that has made you happy or thankful in a surprising way. How has this gratitude affected or motivated you?
Discuss an accomplishment, event, or realization that sparked a period of personal growth and a new understanding of yourself or others.
Describe a topic, idea, or concept you find so engaging that it makes you lose all track of time. Why does it captivate you? What or who do you turn to when you want to learn more?
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.
