Admission Essay requirements

Personal Essay is required for undergraduate admisssions.

Applicants to Northwestern complete two essays: the Common Application essay and the Northwestern Writing Supplement essay. The suggested word limit guideline gives you the chance to answer each question in detail, while also challenging you to write in a concise and clear manner.

In the Northwestern Writing Supplement, we ask students to explain why they would like to attend Northwestern. This question is intentionally open-ended. You may choose one or several aspects of Northwestern to focus your writing, though the majority of the essay’s content should relate to your own interests or experiences.

TIP: Essays are an opportunity – they are one of the few sections of your application that you can manage right now, rather than being dependent on your past performance.

Essay writing is an excellent opportunity for personal expression and original thought.

 Recommendations to apply

  

I got more than a Computer Science Education at Northwestern

Yes, academically, Northwestern is well known to be a challenging school. And, I learned a lot about Computer Science and other subjects. And, I got a lot more out of my 4 years in Evanston. I met my closest friends and partners at NU, including my wife. I made my first web page in the EE computer room. I gained a lot of credibility just from Northwestern's name on my diploma. I learned that I was not cut out to be a professional bassoon player. I played pickup basketball as often as I liked (pretty often.) I'm a big fan of higher education in general and an even bigger fan of my alma-mater. If you're curious about NU and want to talk, feel free to connect.
