Essay

Your essay needs to be between 500 and 750 words. It is a chance for us to get to know you, beyond what your academic transcript already tells us. Each essay is reviewed by at least two readers who are looking for a well-structured, original essay providing a clear presentation of your experiences, passions, and development as a person.

Essay Question: Give a detailed account of an intellectual experience that has helped to define who you are. Your story should make clear what happened, why it had such an impact on you, and how it has shaped your ambitions.
