My son is applying to VT and these are the questions he’s responding to (all max 120 words):
- Virginia Tech’s motto is “Ut Prosim” which means ‘That I May Serve’. We are interested in learning more about your interests and how you have been involved and/or served. Briefly describe a group, organization, or community that you have been involved with. Is this a special area of interest for you, and why? How long have you been involved? What role did you play? What contributions have you made to this group? Were you able to influence others and/or influence decisions for the good of the group?
- Resilience is defined as the ability to adapt and learn from a difficulty. Reflect on a time that you have experienced resilience. What growth did you see in yourself after this experience?
- Share a time when you were most proud of yourself either as a role model or when you displayed your leadership. What specific skills did you contribute to the experience? How did others rely on your for guidance? What did you learn about yourself during this time?
- Describe a goal that you have set and the steps you will take to achieve it. What made you set this goal for yourself? What is your timeline for this goal? Who do you seek encouragement or guidance from as you work on this goal?
