About the Residential Colleges Application Essay
Hi! I am trying to write a 'personal statement' to apply for the residential colleges at NU.
The prompt is: For which residential college(s) would you like to be considered and what would you like to contribute to it (them)? (200 or fewer words)
Kinda confused about what to include in it. Since I will be applying to more than one college and obviously mention their names, it'd be hard to tailor an essay of 200 words to every one of those colleges. Then do I just show them what's unique about me? I was thinking talking about a few points that differentiated me from other applicants. Do I still need to talk about how I will fit at each college then?
Thank you all very much for your help in advance:)
