First-Year Admission – Additional Considerations

Several other items are taken into consideration when making your admissions decision in an effort to get to know you on a personal level. These items include your required essay, your short answer question, involvement and letter of recommendation.

Required personal essay and short answer question

UNCW requires both a personal essay and a short answer question. Since UNCW does not offer personal interviews, approach your essay like a personal interview. Don’t waste your time with demographic information (your name, age, hometown, high school, etc.), as it is already included on your application for admission. Do tell us everything we need to know about you to fully-understand your academic potential, work ethic, distinguishing characteristics, etc.

In addition to reviewing your short answer writing for admission purposes, we also want to see who has composed the best “Why UNCW” response to this question. Each year the Office of Admissions will select some of the most well written answers and enter them in the running for a UNCW book scholarship. The amount of the book scholarship will be determined at the time of the award.

From clubs and organizations to varsity or junior varsity athletics and part-time or full-time jobs to volunteer and community service activities, paint a picture of yourself beyond the classroom. This is your space on the application to brag about yourself, so tell us your most impressive achievements first (leadership positions, varsity letters, awards, etc.) and end your list with the clubs and organizations you have recently joined or are merely a member of. If you run out of room on the application, send us a resume.

Letter of Recommendation (Optional)

In addition to the supplemental items above, you have the opportunity to provide a letter of recommendation. Submitting a letter of recommendation is encouraged, but not required. Should you choose to submit one, we would prefer for it to come from a core academic teacher (English, foreign language, math, science, or social studies) or your guidance counselor. This recommendation should not merely recap your GPA and class rank, but should address your preparedness for a rigorous collegiate environment, your academic integrity and social character. Ultimately, your recommendation is an expert review of your qualifications to join our freshman class.

For the required recommendation letter, students are encouraged to submit one from an instructor other than the parent. This is usually possible since most home-schooled students have taken or are taking a dual-enrolled course at a local college. If that is not the case, the student should submit one from an employer or former employer. For further suggestions, please contact the Admissions office.

UNC Admissions Essay

The supplemental UNC admissions essay is out for this year.

The supplemental UNC admissions essay is out for the 2013-2014 cycle and we’ve got it for you. The University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill supplemental essay prompt — which notably is different from last year’s essay prompt — reads as follows: “ Choose ONE of the prompts below and respond: A) Most of us have one or more personality quirks. Explain one of yours and what it says about you; B) What do you hope to find over the rainbow?; C) Why do you do what you do?; D) If you could travel anywhere in time or space, either real or imagined, where would you go and why?; E) Tell us about a time when your curiosity led you someplace you weren’t expecting to go.”

The UNC admissions essay prompt is required of all applicants to the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill (which has a new chancellor in Carol Folt, the former interim president of Dartmouth College and a longtime Dartmouth administrator and professor). It must be 400-500 words in length and it does leave plenty of room for creativity. We like another of the options for this question — especially the question about what you’ll find over the rainbow. There are so many great possibilities for that one!

Have a question about admission to UNC or about this particular supplemental essay prompt? We at Ivy Coach have certainly got answers for you in spades so let us know your questions by posting in the Comments section below. We’ll hit you right back with answers. Lastly, too many applicants to UNC (and Duke) write about the basketball rivalry between these two universities. Don’t fall into this trap. Don’t write about basketball if you can help it. These prestigious universities want to be known as more than basketball powerhouses. They already are — whether or not you know it.

How creative/ humorous should I be with these essay prompts? Will they scorn me for writing about something childish like Hogwarts?

I wrote about an era in History where there is a lot I would be interested in researching, and then at the end joking said it’s either that or Hogwarts. A whole essay on Hogwarts might be too much, you’d have to tie it to something a little bit more concrete? I’m sure you could pull it off it might just be harder.

For the question, “Why do you do what you do?” Would it be better to write in literal terms such as why I play my sport, or in figurative terms such as doing what you do because of who you are?

We’re writing a blog to answer this question for you today.

The UNC essay also asks for responses to the following 6 questions, each can only be a max of 10 words. I’m interested in your opinion as to the real purpose of asking these questions? What are they trying to learn about me? What is the best way to answer in 10 words? Are they more interested in the why? Thank you!!

2017-2018 University of North Carolina Essays

The 2017-2018 UNC admissions essays are out (photo credit: Yeungb).

The 2017-2018 University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill admissions essays have been released and we’ve got them for our readers. The alma mater of Charlotte Hornets owner Michael Jordan will offer applicants to the university four essay prompts this coming admissions cycle. Of these four essay prompts, applicants will be required to answer two — in 200-250 words. So that means 250 words since students should use all of the real estate available to them in order to make their case.

So what are the University of North Carolina’s essay prompts for the 2017-2018 admissions cycle, you ask? Wonder no longer. They read as follows, according to the office of admissions at UNC: “(1) Tell us about a peer who has made a difference in your life. (2) What do you hope will change about the place where you live? (3) What is one thing that we don’t know about you that you want us to know? (4) What about your background, or what perspective, belief, or experience, will help you contribute to the education of your classmates at UNC?”

The answers to these essay prompts will not only play a role in the applicant’s case for admission to UNC, one of America’s most elite public universities, but these responses will also impact applicants’ merit-based scholarship aid awards. So does the UNC office of admissions care about how applicants respond to these essay prompts? You bet they do.
