supplement short answer #2

<p>---"Regardless of whether or not you have an intended major or concentration, please elaborate on an academic area of interest and how you wish to explore it at NYU's campuses in New York or Abu Dhabi or at one of our global academic centers around the world. Please share any activities or experiences you have had that have cultivated your intellectual interests leading you to choose to study at the NYU campus of your choice."---</p>

<p>how do you differentiate the 2nd half of the question from the first short answer, "Why NYU?"</p>

<p>what are some good ideas to write about if you don't have work experience/internships? i'm not sure what they're looking for</p>

<p>For the first question, I wrote specifically about why I chose Gallatin (as the website suggests). For the second question, I chose French, even though it’s not related to my major. I elaborated by saying a second language is important in today’s world and NYU’s study abroad opportunity for France would allow me to immerse myself in the language, which is the best way to learn/improve a language. I hope this helped! If not, at least your post is bumped :)</p>

<p>^it does, thanks!
are you also writing the extra individualized study essay?</p>

<p>Yup! I figure it can’t hurt. Are you applying to Gallatin as well?</p>

<p>yep, I’m not sure what to include about Gallatin in “why NYU?” instead of in the extra “why Gallatin?” essay</p>
