College Application Essays

Personal Statement: Controversial topic
126 Words

Supplemental Essay: Issue of personal significance
21 Words
One or more of the essays I wrote were about gender equality and my personal observations about gender equality in America.

Supplemental Essay: Strong beliefs/principles
38 Words
I applied to one very religious school and had to write an entire essay about my faith. I am not a religious person so I wrote about that, and about my personal beliefs and principles I live by.

Additional Essay Details:
76 Words
My supplemental essays were on a variety of topics, I applied to seven schools, with one to two essays per school all with different topics!! So no I have no idea what all the topics were, what I do remember is they were hard to write! I feel for everyone going through that, and for some advice I will say: take your time, have other people look over it, edit a lot, and stay on topic.
