Most appealing - should i write only about one thing or just about all the things I like about Columbia. I feel like the wording is confusing or maybe i'm just reading it to many times.

    my question is ( i dont think i made it clear ), should i only write one thing since they ask for the "most appealing" or all the things i like about columbia.

    I don't think it matters.

    you have limited space so develop on one thing rather than enumerating reasons.

    The core curriculum is the defining feature of the college. Sharing this corpus of texts with all of one's classmates at this impressionable age makes for some very lively discussions and strong bonds among classmates. If this doesn't appeal to you then I would advise to look elsewhere.

    the core curriculum did appeal to me BUT i don't think that why essay doesn't really stand out and so i wrote about sth more personal. If you have some other personal and creative things that appealed to u the n use that instea.d

    EVERYONE WROTE ABOUT THE CORE CURRICULUM...

    now if you wrote about the safety you feel because there's a gun within 100 meters of you at all time... that would stand out
