I'm new to the forum so I am sorry if this is posted in the wrong section. Here is the question: As you know, the academic programs at Emerson College are focused on communication and the arts. Please tell us what influenced you to select your major. If you're undecided about your major, what attracted you to Emerson's programs? Please be brief (100-200 words).

My response: Emerson comes highly recommended by friends and family. I am looking for a school that is inclusive to everyone; no matter what ethnicity, religion, or sexual preference. After reading the "Mission" section of the Emerson College Brochure, I believe that it is a great place to begin my college career. Although leaving New York City will not be easy, the beautiful location of Emerson's campus gives me the feeling of being in a home away from home. In the future, I would like to pursue a career in film and media but for now, I am unsure. What I am sure of is that the creativity of my fellow student body at Emerson will give me the support I need to find the correct path and make the right decision for my future. I am looking forward to making Emerson the most opportune experience of my life.

I suggest maybe including something about the specific programs you intend to take advantage of. Also, I wouldn't talk about how beautiful the campus is, rather, I would spend more time on the mission of Emerson and how it relates to your personal mission. Hope this helps.

No, you are in the right forum... ... Well done and thanks! :)

Emerson comes highly recommended by friends and family.

why do they recommend Emerson? If you don't give any clue about that , this sentence does not provide any value to your response. Also, I feel it has no connection with the question that asks what made you to choose your major. If you talk about your family and friends, then you better tell that they recommend that particular major for you.

None of these sentences talk about what influenced you to select your major. Therefore I feel this response needs more alignment with the prompt.
