Georgetown Regular Decision Essays

Tmorrell12Tmorrell12 Registered User Posts: 1 New Member
Soooo for the supplemental essays for Georgetown. I've had my application ready for awhile. Earlier in March, I could've sworn there were multiple essays. The "Indicate any special talents or skills that you possess." one and “In the space available discuss the significance to you of the school or summer activity in which you have been most involved.” essay were both there plus something else. Now I'm just starting to take a look at the application again because I'm preparing to apply regular decision and I'm seeing that only the "Indicate any special talents or skills that you possess." essay prompt exists! Am I the only one who has this? Does Georgetown really want just one essay for their entire application for the regular decision application? How on earth is that enough!!!! Please just tell me there isn't some malfunction with my application and that other people are seeing this when they log on as well.

    Is the "indicate special talents" an essay?!

    Essay #1: Indicate any special skills or talent you possess. (No limit) (can be written as essay or a list)
    Essay #2: Discuss the significance to you of the school or summer activity in which you have been most involved: (no limit)
    Essay #3: As Georgetown is a diverse community, the Admissions Committee would like to know more about you in your own words. Please submit a brief essay, either personal or creative, which you feel best describes you. (1 page)
    Essay #4: Please relate your interest in studying at Georgetown University to your goals. How do these thoughts relate to your chosen course of study? (If you are applying to major in the FLL or in a Science, please specifically address those interests.) (1 page)

    "Indicate any special talents or skills that you possess" is not meant to be an essay. It's more of a catch-all "anything else that you want us to know about you?" prompt.
