Prince's extra Engineering Essay question

<p>I want to do engineer, but I don't really have any experiences/interesting things to say about "why you are interested in studying engineering, any experiences in or exposure to engineering you have had, and how you think the programs in engineering offered at Princeton suit your particular interests."</p>

<p>Is it generally helpful or not helpful to choose to write this essay? Because when they ask if you are interested in an engineering degree, it is non-binding.</p>

<p>I did it anyway. Any excuse to elaborate should be taken.</p>
