Phew, your main essay is done. You’ve done your drafts, really believe it shows who you are, and you’ve even given it to a College Coach expert for a final proof read. So what’s next? Tackling the supplemental essays. While some require only 100 to 150 words, others are another full length essay on top of that personal statement.

While this is a simple question to ask, it’s honestly not an easy question to answer. The good news is that it shouldn’t be nearly as difficult as the personal statement you just wrote, and there’s plenty of research out there to support your efforts. Here are a few tips to help you approach these questions.
