Sometimes colleges place questions related to current events or major societal occurrences and ask you to write about them. With these questions, the school's are looking for your awareness, knowledge, creativity, and ability to put forth an argument. (Just make sure you understand the topic if you choose to respond to one of these types of questions!)
- Do you believe in global warming -- and what impact, if any, do you think it will have on you?
- Your generation has been labeled as the "entitlement generation." What does that label mean to you -- and do you feel it's accurate of your peers?
- What is the biggest cultural change you have witnessed in your lifetime?
- Consider the books, essays, poems, or journal articles you have read over the last year or two. Please discuss the way in which one of them has changed your understanding of the world, other people, or yourself.
