Hello, I'm applying for a summer medical camp and there are three essay questions
1. Why are you interested in the summer program?
2. What topic in science or math interests you the most and why?
3. What are some of your favorite activities?

I was wondering if I could get some tips on how to answer those and advice on how long I should make each answer. We haven't talked about writing college essays or application essays in school yet so it's not something I'm too familiar with. I wasn't sure if the standard 5 paragraph essay would be good or if it is too much. I feel like if I were a member of the acceptance board I wouldn't want to be reading 15 paragraphs from every applicant. It would be great if I could get some help on these issues, especially since my deadline is getting closer and closer.
