Urgent Help Needed!!!
One of the questions on Occidental's application is, "While we realize your interests may change in college, what are your current academic and intellectual curiosities?" I wrote about a research query that I would like to explore, but now I am not sure if it addresses the question appropriately. What do they actually mean by academic and intellectual interests? Do they want to know which major(s) I want to pursue, and why? Or is there anything else? I would be very grateful if anyone would help me out. Thanks in advance!!4 replies
