And now, as the simplest way to suggest what you might do, let me just offer a couple of examples that represent me– What inspires me: Again, that’s 35 words.
Note the haiku thing I mentioned—the unstated is as important as the stated.
If an app reader knows something about it , I don’t need to explain, and if they don’t know much, they will still recognize the name.
This might seem pretentious for you, which is why all of these responses are Course Title: Your Future according to Climate Change.
You will notice some real similarities in your approach to these Yale short responses and the Brown supplement.
Though Yale is seeking only two paragraphs for this Why Yale part of the supplement, they are important paragraphs, and you will want to go beyond just the majors to look at classes, and to look beyond classes to who teaches them and to look at what professors of interest you discover there do outside of the classroom as well as in it, such as research that intrigues you. And I would not spend much time on Yale’s “societies”; in particular, please just do not discuss how cool you think Skull and Bones is; this is a bad focus for a Yale application, in my experience.
I will separate the Yale Engineering Prompt and the 250-word essays to discuss in Parts 2 and 3, but if you are eager to start that Engineering essay, it’s very similar to other “Why Engineering” Essays, like the one at Princeton, which I discussed in the post linked here: How to Write the Princeton Engineering Essay.
Take a look at that for some ideas on developing a successful engineering essay, and I will return to a specific discussion on it later.
35 words forces some choices and the dangling modifier allows me to skip some words by dropping a restatement of Joyce’s name.
If you have no idea who he is, Joyce wrote , and it is a novel I love.
