International Studies Weinberg - Unique Qualities

Someone007Someone007 Registered User Posts: 185 Junior Member
Hello! I'm applying RD to NU, but I still can't get my supplemental essay right. If there are any current students or parents roaming the forums, could you tell me some unique qualities Weinberg college holds, or opportunities presented in the International Studies major? You'd be of great help!

    This tell you about the international studies, you might have already seen this: http://www.internationalstudies.northwestern.edu/undergraduate/first-year.html. I would focus most on the benefits you might think you find in NU rather than stressing and listing specific programs. If you mention your interest in that major and can relate it back to your prospective future studies that's more than enough. The supplement essay is more about expressing your interest/passion in the school than merely listing facts. Try to find the crux of why you like it and focus on that, and if you can integrate one small piece of information you find on that web page for the major your applying, you should be fine. Good luck!
