QUESTION
College essay prompts CSU Sacramento and east bay,McGill,Pepperdine,U of Oregon, U of Denver,Santa Clara Uni ?
Any know the college essay prompts for these schools please?

ANSWER
No sign of an essay requirement for the CSUs, McGill or Pepperdine.

Oregon:
“Submit the required essay in which you tell us about something that you have done on your own in the last two years that makes you feel good about yourself. Your work should reflect your own ideas and be written by you alone. Present your ideas in a focused, thoughtful, clear, organized, and meaningful manner. Write in a natural style and support your ideas with specific examples. At least one person should edit your essay prior to submission. Maximum essay length is 500 words.”

Denver uses the Common Application here: http://admission.du.edu/admissions/apply… They also accept their own Pioneer Application:

“Personal Essay
This personal essay helps us become acquainted with you in ways different from courses, grades, test scores, and other objective data. In at least 250 words, please write on a topic of your choice.”

Santa Clara also uses the Common Application, but you have to be registered at that site to see the actual form. This is from their admissions page: “Because we want to have a sense of who you are as a person, we look closely at the essay and personal statements you’re asked to write, your guidance counselor’s evaluation, and teacher recommendation.

* Tip – Make sure the majority of the essay you write is about you. For example, if you find someone inspiring tell us how or why this person inspires you and what actions you’ve taken or plans you’ve made as a result.”
