UPenn Essay

I'm not sure if this is the right place to be putting this but I was just wondering how you guys plan on writing your supplemental essays. I find that a lot of good essays are written in a narrative style rather than an "argumentative" and straightforward essay. With this year's topic, how you discovered your academic and intellectual interests and how you'll explore them at UPenn, I feel like a narrative could be done but since half the question addresses what you would do in the future, do you think it's still a good idea to write in that format? Since a narrative should reflect a personal experience that you've already gone through it's confusing as to if its a good way to go. Thanks in advance!

    Especially with why college essays, it's not imperative to use a narrative structure! If you were to separate your essay into 2 parts, answering each part of the question, perhaps consider using a narrative blend about finding interests and then switching to how you'd explore them in normal essay format! at least that's what I did last year haha
