In the short questions, we ask you to briefly talk about your main idea and points, being concise and direct as well as explanatory. Thus, we give the opportunity for students that are not in their last year high school (graduating in school in 2016 and 2017) to answer the short questions either in Portuguese or in English. However, we highly recommend you to answer all questions in English. Again, students that are graduating from high school in 2014 and 2015 MUST answer all short questions completely in English.
Essays are the opportunity for you to differ yourself from others and shine. Be direct, descriptive, and creative. This is your time!
You are about to write two essays: one Personal Statement, which the prompt is the same for all applicants. In addition, you will also need to work on a Writing Supplement, which you will be able to choose from the five options listed below.
Your Personal Statement is very important for us to better understand who you are. Please write your Personal Statement in no less than 250 words and more than 650 words and based on the prompt below:
Personal Statement Prompt: Describe the world you came from and how that shaped who you are.
Your second essay is your Writing Supplement. Now, you have the opportunity to detail more about yourself. You will be able to pick one out of the five (5) essay prompts below. Please bear in mind that you need to write your essay in no less than 250 words and no more than 650 words.
Be awesome. Be creative. Be yourself.
