Hi I'm in the process of writing the Emory supplement essay. This is what I have so far.
Prompt:1. Many students decide to apply to Emory University based on our size, location, reputation, and yes, the weather. Besides these valid reasons as a possible college choice, why is Emory University a particularly good match for you?
There is a 250 word limit.
I didn't consider Emory as a prospective school until I was narrowing down my list of colleges for the QuestBridge scholarship. At first I was reluctant to research the school because of its distant location from home, but eventually my curiosity coerced me into taking a peek. As I perused through reviews of the school on Unigo and scanned the opportunities available for students, I realized that Emory has the best educational setting that will help me develop into a well-rounded individual.
Emory's combination of a core academic curriculum and dedicated professors comprise the appropriate environment for developing new interests. While some students complain about Emory's general requirements, I find these classes to be essential for finalizing my decision for an intended major. The core classes will also allow me to broaden my knowledge as I study disciplines that differ in ideas and concentrations. Working with professors who have a passion for their field and care enough about their students to learn their names will allow me to receive the support I need to understand each discipline and to develop critical thinking skills in each one.
Emory's diverse student body draws me to the school because it will complete my college experience. Exposure to various backgrounds in a small community will contribute to my development into a well-rounded individual; my encounters with different beliefs and values will allow me to reflect on and modify my own and understand other cultures.
I hope to be an Emory Eagle next year.
