Smith College Supplement for Fall 2020?

waterlily9918waterlily9918 3 replies2 threadsRegistered User New Member
The Smith essay for this year is "If you had a theme song - a piece of music that describes you, what would it be and why? Please include the name of the song and the artist." The thing is that I may have a lot of songs that I truly love, but to find a song that describes me well is not an easy thing for me. When I try to draft the essay, it sounds more like "why I like the song" instead of "how the song describes me". Anyone can give me any advice to approach this question? Any help is appreciated, thank you!

    One suggestion is to approach this from the other direction. What do you want Smith to know about you? Then try to find a song that would communicate that to Admissions. Note that it doesn't necessarily have to be one of your favorite songs.

    I am guessing that they are looking for a thoughtful or insightful or *humorous response that is 1) well-written, and 2) tells them a little bit more about you.

    *only write something humorous if that is really who you are - it can be hard to be funny!
