Transfer Essay Questions

We have finalized the essay questions for the Fall 2011 transfer application, so now if you're planning to apply as a transfer student, you can get a head start on your essay. We require just one essay for transfer applicants, and we ask that you limit your response to about 500 words.

The full transfer application will be up in September, and the deadline is March 1, 2011. We'll let you know when the application is available online.

Fall 2011 Transfer Essay Questions:
  1. People find many ways to express their inner world. Some write novels; others paint, perform, or debate; still others design elegant solutions to complex mathematical problems. How do you express your inner world, and how does the world around you respond?
  2. Tell us about a group project in which you had to collaborate with your peers. How did it go?
  3. What’s the best advice you’ve ever received or given?
  4. If you have written an essay for another school’s application that you really like, feel free to use it as your short or long essay for us. Please be sure to tell us (a) what essay you are answering and (b) why you think this essay represents you well (your explanation will not be included in the word count).
Thanks! Please let us know if you have questions.
