Supplemental Essay?

<p>In the Other Information tab of the Questions section on the Common App, there is a supplemental essay question, but it has a green check next to it whether anything is entered or not, which makes it seem like it might be optional. There's no mention at all of a supplemental essay on the Wheaton website, optional or not. Does anyone know whether this question is required?</p>

<p>This is a required section! It is a little confusing. </p>

<p>I am an ED admit, so I already went through the whole process. If you have any questions, feel free to ask! </p>
