does this mean we can only talk about academic experiences, or is it okay if we mention another experience in our life that caused us to choose a certain major

    I was confused on the same thing.
    I'm majoring in Nueroscience with a minor in Psych.
    So I basically put how ever since I was a child, I questions people's behaviors and actions.
    I don't know..

    It really depends on your major. :)

    It can be about any experience. I think they were just making suggestions.

    Part of answering our essay questions is how one interprets the essay prompts. You can answer the question in any way you choose. We like to leave the essay questions a bit vague and open-ended to allow applicants to take their answers in a number of different directions. That also leads to a variety of answers for the Admissions committee to review.
