When applying as a Journalism major...

Do you have to send in samples of your writing? How much more would it help if you sent in samples compared to just putting down journalism as your major on the app and writing the essay?

    I guess you could. Check and see if the school accepts supplementary materials such as portfolios.

    Yeah, be sure to check out any supplement info your colleges may have available. Usually sending in samples of your writing goes for internships and if you want to be part of the school newspaper...but I think that if you just write your essay well, it should be enough.
