Essays - What did everyone write about?

<p>Just out of curiosity, what did you guys write for your essays. I stayed up the entire night yesterday and crapped up something, it was personal enough alright, but I don't know if it's appealing to the adcom. Especially the second question about how you intend to utilise the programs offered in the college to further explore your intended major. What exactly are they looking for?</p>

<p>do they ask the same questions every year? i think i had one of those as my questions. at least for the short answer anyway.</p>

<p>Write about your intended major. Twist you experiences, clubs, work experiences etc to make it sound like u were always interested in your major and you have been trying to explore that topic while in high school. THey want ppl really interested in the topic other than just want to come to an ivy league school</p>

<p>out of the 3 essays we are supposed to write which is the most important?</p>

<p>What are you talking about? You write all three essays or at least, I think you were supposed to have done that.</p>

<p>wait, i thought there were only 2 essays to write.</p>

<p>You had to complete a total of 3 essays...two 250 word essays on the Cornell supplemental essay form and one 500 word essay on the common application. I'm sure you all did the right thing, I just believe that everyones' nerves are just taking over. Good luck to all and relax.</p>
