The essay portion of the application allows you to tell your story to admissions. But what if you have more than one story to tell?   Learn how you can use the main personal statement and supplemental essays to communicate a full picture of who you are as a person. The following topics will be covered:

  • How to develop a voice and identify a topic for your main personal statement
  • The growing importance of supplemental essays and how to craft answers that help you stand out
  • How and when to use the additional information section

There will be plenty of time to ask questions!
