I am applying to the College of Human Ecology at Cornell University. The supplement question is "What do you value about the College of Human Ecology perspective and the majors that interest you, as you consider your academic goals and plans for the future?" (500 words)
How would I approach this if I am applying as undecided? (the two majors I am considering are Fiber Science & Apparel Design and Human Biology, Health, & Society) and I am not really sure how to connect the two.
Whenever a student is applying as an undecided candidate, they should always talk about the things that all majors share in common. Start by talking about what interest you in the college. Why are you applying there as an undecided candidate. Then you can talk about the freedom to take several exploratory courses which will count for both or all majors in the school. Allowing you time to try out different majors without being locked in. - admissions essay advice
