Open-Ended Question...

Jake22Jake22 Registered User Posts: 73 Junior Member
...do we have to write this essay?

" Is there anything you would like us to know about you or your academic record that you have not had the opportunity to describe elsewhere in this application? "

What if there is nothing else I have to write about? Should I just say "No."

    You should answer that question even if you fell like saying "no". It's your chance of selling yourself. Think of something you want them to know that you didn't mention in the application.

    they want around 200 words of open-ended. you write no and that says that you are nothin' but a bunch of numbers and 800 words of essay. don't skip it, it's not exactly optional.
