<p>Bowdoin students and alumni often cite world-class faculty and opportunities for intellectual engagement, the College’s commitment to the Common Good, and the special quality of life on the coast of Maine as important aspects of the Bowdoin experience. Reflecting on your own interests and experiences, please comment on one of the following:</p>

<li>Intellectual engagement</li>
<li>The Common Good</li>
<li>Connection to place</li>

<p>"Comment." Can someone help me with this key word...I'm thinking about doing topic 3 and I need opinions as to how I should approach this. Thanks.</p>

<p>What attracts you to the coast of Maine? How does your own experience contribute to your preference for this location?</p>

<p>(“Comment” as in “Write about it”.)</p>

<p>But I’ve never been there before but in the interview, I did learn a few things but I’m not sure that’d be best…</p>

<p>Sorry, but I was under the impression you’re supposed to write about your connection to your place? Like your hometown or something, for the third question.</p>
