Coalition Essay Question Released for 2016-2017 Season

coalitionThe Coalition for Access, Affordability, and Success is set to launch its application in July, but the recommended essay prompts for the 2016-2017 season have already been released, though colleges can choose to not require an essay or offer alternate options. So far, a word limit has not been announced.

  • Describe a time when you made a meaningful contribution to others in which the greater good was your focus. Discuss the challenges and rewards of making your contribution.
  • Has there been a time when you’ve had a long-cherished or accepted belief challenged? How did you respond? How did the challenge affect your beliefs?
  • What is the hardest part of being a teenager now? What’s the best part? What advice would you give a younger sibling or friend (assuming they would listen to you)?
  • Submit an essay on a topic of your choice.

Although the questions have been released, many other details, including which schools will be using the application, are still up in the air. Of its 93 members, 60 are saying that they are not planning to use the application this season, and it remains to be seen how dependable the technology will be when presented.
