Who fits into the first group? Whether you read a guidebook or talked to your friends or visited the school or went to a college fair, share the details about how you learned and followed up with BU, and do so in a way that no other applicant will be able to do.
You want to study engineering, and eventually become an engineer, but you will hold this dream of becoming an astronaut for the foreseeable future. Please refer to our list of majors to see which semesters of entry are available for each program.
I'm not sure I can adequately describe just how many responses the BU admissions committee is likely to read that are some version of, "I first became interested in Boston University when I read about it in a college guidebook.
So they don't necessarily have any stories to relate that show these traits in action or if they do, it's what the admissions committee knows already, like, "I am very committed to my academics".
In regards to the second part of the prompt, reflecting on your past education, brainstorm the most counterproductive and uninspiring aspects of your school curriculum thus far.
The best college essays start with a lot of thought, not so much about what would sound good, but rather, about what you'd really like to say. This is, essentially, the only question BU is asking you, so you have no excuse not to buckle down and spend some quality time poring over the school website.
