UPDATE! Our new, fully updated guide to the 2019-20 Pitt prompts has been released! Check it out here.
The University of Pittsburgh has changed two out of its three supplemental essay requirements for 2019-20! Let's take a look at the new questions you'll need to answer if you want to attend this school. There's no required word limit for any of the questions, but Pittsburgh recommends keeping it to 200-300 words.
Tell us about something you have read/watched/listened to that made an impact on you. Tell us why it made an impact.
What else should we know about you? Take this opportunity to tell the Admissions Committee anything else you think we should know as we review your application for admission.
The Old Question
