Over time, College Coach Kennon Dick has had a number of students struggle with writing their responses to the Emory University supplemental prompts, and this year they seem to be equally, if not more perplexing. Emory requires students to respond in under 150 words to one of three prompts reflecting upon a topic of importance to them and to one of three prompts which give the reader a peek at the students’ inner workings. The difficulty of writing something really illuminating in 150 words or less makes it even more challenging, and having multiple prompts to choose from doesn’t seem to mitigate student’s stress very much. If Emory is on your list, check out Kennon’s tips for tackling these short essays at blog.getintocollege.com.
