<p>Do they generally stay the same each year? I want to get an early start on writing.</p>
<p>The essays are the exact same this year BUT the lengths have been revamped, so check that out (I think that a quick Google of "UC System" should yield any answers you need)</p>
<p>I found something interesting on the University of California website. It says that the prompts are new for Fall 2008. If I'm going to be applying this fall for a spot in 2008, I guess I have to respond to these new prompts.</p>
<p>They are all new this year. ugh</p>
<p>Wait are those the actual prompts for this year? I thought there were always 3 each year. This year there are only 2? Or are they only releasing 2 for right now?</p>
<pre><code>Prompt #1 (freshman applicants)
Describe the world you come from – for example, your family, community or school – and tell us how your world has shaped your dreams and aspirations.
Prompt #2 (all applicants)
Tell us about a personal quality, talent, accomplishment, contribution or experience that is important to you. What about this quality or accomplishment makes you proud and how does it relate to the person you are?
<p>^ i believe those are the only two. they changed it up this year.</p>
<p>hmmm..but almost same..so it shouldnt be a big deal..</p>
