2012-2013 Essay Questions for Columbia, Pepperdine, Kenyon and More

More and more schools are releasing their Common App supplements, and College Essay Organizer is updating all of them. Columbia University just posted its questions, as did Pepperdine University and Kenyon College. One of our favorite Pepperdine questions from last year was taken out ("Please finish the following sentence: The Admission Committee members would laugh if they knew I..."), but the replacement was equally thought-provoking: "If you were to write a book about your life, what would be the title?"

Kenyon also had a creative new set of essay prompts, with our favorite being:

“From now on, I'll connect the dots my own way," says Calvin in the comic strip "Calvin and Hobbes" by Bill Watterson '80. What is "your way" of making sense of things? Are there dots you hope to connect?

We also updated some schools with lots of scholarship and program-specific questions including New York University (3 required questions, 1 optional question, and 18 program-specific questions), Uuniversity of Texas-Austin (1 required question, 1 optional question, and 12 program-specific questions), and University of Southern California (2 required questions and 28 program-specific questions).
