While it seemed clear how a social science major applicant can make Q1 personal, how have you seen students focusing on more technical majors do so effectively?

Any suggestions for students who want to share about hobbies that are not connected to their major? Also, does the hobby add value to their application only if they receive public recognition or have clearly added value to their community (versus someone doing the hobby quietly in their home)?

Responding to the hi-lights, it seems like the readers are looking for direct answers, quality and quantity, rather than filler. I understand it is important to set background and such, but answers are more important.

Absolutely. We want students to answer the questions!

Following up on my previous question, have you seen any examples where a student was able to convey their quiet hobbies not connected to their major conducted entirely in private in a way that added value? How?

Thank you for that example. I see how that type of response would add value. Is it common practice to view/open links that applicants reference to showcase a musical or physical talent, etc.?

For instance, see my Youtube video! :)

Good to know to be able to share that response with students who are insistent upon sharing their rap videos and breakdancing skills...

Are readers sensitive to ESOL learners/writers?
