We take every aspect of your personal profile into consideration when calculating your admissions chances.
Please list all clubs, organizations, activities, and jobs in which you‘ve participated outside of the classroom while enrolled at your current school or previous schools. Feel free to indicate any honors or achievements received in each organization. Your response may be considered when reviewing eligibility for merit awards. Please be sure to indicate the grade(s) or year(s) you have participated. You may use the text box below and/or upload a Resume.
The University is committed to the safety of our community. When an applicant for admissions indicates on the admissions application that they have been convicted of, have plead guilty to, have plead no contest to, or have a pending charge related to a criminal incident, including felony, misdemeanor, and/or summary non-traffic offenses, Misericordia University will require further investigation into the applicant’s background. Please see our University Catalog for more information about our policies.
Have you ever been convicted of, pled guilty to, or have pending charges regarding a criminal (felony, misdemeanor, or summary/non traffic) offense?*
If you answered yes to the previous question, please explain your Conviction action.
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.
