Update! New UPenn Essay Prompts Announced

The University of Pennsylvania is really shaking things up! Instead of just one required supplemental UPenn essay, there are now two. Let's look at the prompts.

  • How did you discover your intellectual and academic interests, and how will you explore them at the University of Pennsylvania? Please respond considering the specific undergraduate school you have selected. (300-450 words)
  • At Penn, learning and growth happen outside of the classroom, too. How will you explore the community at Penn? Consider how this community will help shape your perspective and identity, and how your identity and perspective will help shape this community. (150-200 words)

 

There are also a number of new program-specific prompts. For details on all of the UPenn essays, check out our prompt updates page.
