Activity 3: Essay Questions
Print out, copy, and distribute the Essay Question sheet. Ask each student to pair up with an adult who is not their parent and select one of the questions in the handout to talk about. Bring the group back together when they have completed the exercise. Ask for volunteers to share which question they responded to and what they feel an admissions committee would be looking for in their response.
