yeah UNC's app is interesting in that it has 2 essays and a short answer section. you write like 20-word responses to some normal and some really weird questions! they are looking for of course top scores and grades etc, but they want REAL people! people who show a clear passion or personality.
i put gossip girl as one of the short answers...i explained it but it showed that i am a real person. the question was the last book you read outside of class was __________ and why. work really really hard on the essays/short answers!
