I have to write this essay and because I have been to Paris, the cultural event I chose was the Sainte Chapelle Cathedral. I was wondering whether or not this could be a valid topic or if I should just pick something else.
It seems like it doesn't need to be a cultural event (or a book) since there is the "etc" on the end of your prompt... And to me that wouldn't be a cultural thing if you just visited the Cathedral. However, I think the main focus here is how you found a certain thing/event meaningful. So maybe you can still write about the Sainte Chapelle Cathedral, just not as a cultural event... this is just my opinion!
If you would be kind enough to comment on my new essay that would also be much appreciated! Thank you :)
I don't think it counts as a cultural event..like a convention, concert, lecture, art exhibit, etc. Unless there was some kind of event going on at the Cathedral that day? I wonder if Mass would count?
But the thing is the prompt that this was asked to draw from talked about exhibits and other entertainment enjoyed this year. I listed a plethora of European museums and churches thinking that was what it meant.
This is a valid topic to write on as long as this experience is part of the list you made in part D one of the supplement. - Admissions Advice Online
