For entry class of August 2011 they were:
1. In an essay of 300 words or less, please discuss your academic interests and/or professional goals.
2. In an essay of 300 words or less, choose one extracurricular activity, work experience, or community service project from the list you provided on the application and explain why you initially chose it, why you continued with it, and how you benefited from it.
No. 1, though the wording has changed somewhat over the years, has been substantively the same question for about 50 years. There was no second essay until about 2006 and it was orginially a "diversity" essay. It was changed last year to the one above. Not yet known whether it will be the same but likely.
