Nice brief, thoughtful response. Good luck.I am applying to a somewhat prestigious school and I really want to sound intelligent, and like a student they'd actually want. Can you check over my answer and tell me what to change/correct. Don't be afraid to be really critical! Thanks!
Question: What influenced you to apply to St. Norbert College?
I've been a part of the pre-college program Upward Bound (TRIO) at UWSP for four years. Every year the program takes us on college tours to numerous campuses,
and one yearSaint Norbert was one of those colleges. I wasbecame familiar with the existence ofthis college and its programs in discussions with frommy History teacher, and because one of the staff members at Upward Bound had attended SNC. Their talk ofstatements about the beauty of the campus and academic excellence of the campusschool paired with my insightsobjectives after touring the campus and learning about the programs, drove me to apply as soon as possible.
P.S. Is this too short? For responses to questions such as these, I think the shorter the better. I know that most question styles are suppose to be like 200-300 words. But this wasn't really on the essay question section, it was on the "Name and Other Items" section.
