Schools With a Surprising Number of Essay Questions

Being a top-ranked college does not guarantee that it will have more essay questions than smaller colleges. Here at College Essay Organizer, we're always surprised by the number of essay questions some smaller schools require their students to write, and then there are leading schools like Dartmouth College that don't require any supplemental essays!

Here are a few schools that have a surprising variety of questions:

  • Mount St. Mary's University has 2 questions for regular applicants and 5 scholarship questions
  • Grove City College has 4 required questions and 3 special applicant questions
  • Warren Wilson College has 2 required questions and 4 scholarship questions
