Essay prompts

The Common Application Essay

Students must choose one of the following topics to complete an essay of no more than 650 words:

  1. Some students have a background, identity, interest, or talent that is so meaningful they believe their application would be incomplete without it. If this sounds like you, then please share your story.

  2. The lessons we take from failure can be fundamental to later success. Recount an incident or time when you experienced failure. How did it affect you, and what did you learn from the experience?

  • Reflect on a time when you challenged a belief or idea.  What prompted you to act? Would you make the same decision again?

  • Describe a problem you've solved or a problem you'd like to solve. It can be an intellectual challenge, a research query, an ethical dilemma-anything that is of personal importance, no matter the scale. Explain its significance to you and what steps you took or could be taken to identify a solution.

  • Discuss an accomplishment or event, formal or informal, that marked your transition from childhood to adulthood within your culture, community, or family.

UC Personal Statement

Students must also submit a personal statement in response to the following prompt in approximately 250 words:

  • UC students are dedicated to enhancing their academic experience by being active members of the campus community, often through participation in student-run organizations. If you were given the opportunity to create your own student club or organization at UC, what would it be? Discuss why your choice is of particular interest to you and how it would be a positive contribution to the UC community.

Recommendations to apply

Excellent University

I graduated from the Business College in 1990 and joined the Air Force as a commissioned officer after going through their Reserve Officer Training Corp program. I found that the university prepared me well for the military career that I embarked upon, and beyond. Now that I am transitioning from the military into the civilian sector, I am able to fall back upon the solid foundation that I received during my time as a student there and know that I won't have any problem making the adjustment. Thanks largely to the education I received at UC, I was able to get promoted to the rank of Colonel and recently met a Navy Admiral who also attended the university. We both agreed that our UC education helped us to succeed.
