This is your typical essay requiring an explanation of why you are picking this school - but they really want you to demonstrate through writing about them why they should pick you.

Supplemental Essay: Unique question posed by school
48 Words
One school asked what the "Good Life" meant to me. I explained that it involved a life that had both good times and bad times - experiencing and overcoming adversity is particularly important in helping you to grow and especially to be able to appreciate the good times.

Additional Essay Details:
60 Words
I took a different route with this essay. In the introduction, I explained why I took issue with the prompt - I am not of the belief that a single event can be life-changing; rather, a person may evolve over time due to a series of changes. The rest of my essay answered the question based on this altered concept.
