For the main transfer essay, I talked about my passion for computer science and how I wanted to go to college not to just get my degree but to learn about the world as well. Spoke about my interests in non-STEM subjects like philosophy, politics, and film.
For the pick your own essay I chose the one asking me to describe something outside of my academic focus I was interested in, I talked about my love for film and how I could take advantage of the thriving film community at USC.
For the why USC I talked about mostly how USC would offer a great education in computer science for me. I talked about the hands-on and collaborative environment at Viterbi and how I was interested in the PDP program as well.
