Over the years, College Coach Ian Fisher has found it hard to articulate the response that past students have had to Chapman University in Orange, California. It’s a beautiful campus in a part of Southern California that students don’t often consider, and it has a really strong program in film and screenwriting. It’s small but not too small; big but not too big, at just under 10,000 students. But the most striking aspect of Chapman, from where Ian sits, is that there are some students that go to visit and come back to proclaim that they just love it there. And how else can you explain the willingness of students to write three 200-word essays for a school that accepts more than half its students? That’s right, even though we wouldn’t call Chapman highly selective, it has a supplement that rivals many of the most selective colleges in the country in terms of total word count, if not difficulty. But the supplement isn’t without its opportunities for fun, either. Take a look at the task ahead, for those who want to apply to Chapman this fall, in the latest post on College Coach Insider blog at blog.getintocollege.com.
