Supplement Essay

I really dislike this essay prompt. It is next to impossible to avoid being pretentious.

I also couldn't help but notice that it allows 4000 characters. I think so far I have used about 700 and I really don't have much more to say...Is that a really bad thing?
How are other people approaching this to make it better? Please feel free to share ideas...

    I feel you completely
    I was actually able to visit Pitzer so for my essay I'm trying to incorporate all of what I witnessed,learned, and experienced on campus, but so far it's been easier said than done.
    I really want a stand out essay, so I'm trying to think of ways to approach it without being bland.
