Hey, I'm thinking about starting my Penn supplement, (I'll be applying ED in just a couple of months!) and I'm wondering how you guys are interpreting the essay question?
If you haven't already seen it... this is pretty much it:
Which academic communities and social communities that are now at Penn are most interesting to you and how will you contribute to them and to the larger Penn community?
I want to be playful with it and have fun with it but I'm not sure if the prompt calls for it or not. I'm assuming I should cite certain clubs/organizations I'd like to get involved with... but I feel like it could easily turn into a boring formulaic essay. I don't just want to say, "I'll be an excited student" and "I'd love to get involved in X club" or "I'm excited to be a part of greek life at Penn" or whatever... I guess I'm just a little lost and not sure how I want to even begin this essay.
