Introductory Activity

The following prompts are actual essay questions posed by universities on their college applications. I want you to pick one of the following prompts and answer it. I want your responses to be at least two pages but no longer than three pages (double spaced, times new roman 12 point font). Colleges use this essay as opportunity to get to know their applicants. Be creative in responses and personalize them. A good essay will have personal anecdotes that will tell me something that is unique about you. A good essay will also have MORE THAN ONE PARAGRAPH. YOUR ESSAYS SHOULD HAVE AT LEAST FOUR PARAGRPAHS IF NOT MORE



  1. If you were to describe yourself by a quotation, what would the quote be? Explain your answer. (Dartmouth)

  2. Recount an incident or time when you experienced failure. How did it affect you, and what lessons did you learn?

  3. Reflect on a time when you challenged a belief or idea. What prompted you to act? Would you make the same decision again?
