List of School/Program Specific Essay Questions?


Recommended Posts

I was planning on applying to graduate school next year, but I wanted to begin preparing for essays next Spring/Summer.

Therefore, does anyone know if there is a spreadsheet or list out there that already contains a crowd-sourced list of school/program specific essay questions?

I don't know of a list, but that's probably because the essays don't differ that much from one another. There's the basic Statement of Purpose, and some universities call it the Personal Statement -- and yes, there are some minor differences between the two. Some schools ask you to divide this same pool of information into two essays -- one specifying your interest in the program, and another describing your research experience. But at the heart of it all is information about you, your background, and where you want to be in 5 years.
