These are the two prompts:What's the major requirement essay?
Not sure if this is helpful as mine was for the grad program, but:
For my personal statement I talked about how I started in filmmaking and why I love cinematography. Then I dabbled a bit of personal things of why the timing is right for me to attend now, and the type of person I want to be. "With the help of Chapman, I can obtain these goals and be provided the tools needed to succeed." etc etc
Hey! Awesome to have more undergraduates on the forumHey! I'm applying to this major as well, and I think I might apply Early Decision, because the only school I would turn down Chapman for is USC, but ofc I'm probably not getting into USC. Do you think that's a good idea?
(also because Chapman would probably be cheaper than USC. I should be eligible for some scholarship money at Chapman)
Ya haha, the only reason I hesitate to apply ED for Chapman is because part of me thinks I'll magically get into USC AND be able to pay, but that probs won't happen and I really do love chapman. But yeah, I'm still gonna apply to USC no matter what, just in case. Thanks for the advice!!Hey! Awesome to have more undergraduates on the forum
I think if you really wanna go for ED, go for it. I was trying to figure out the same but I think I'm only gonna apply EA because while Chapman's one of my top schools, I'm still holding out hope for USC lol. But especially if money is a problem, Chapman might be a better bet since I've heard they give good aid. The USC application deadline for SCA is the same as their merit scholarship deadline so it wouldn't hurt to still apply though.
I'm also with you on being scared to start my essays! It kind of made me feel better to think about it as them just wanting to get to know you, no pressure. Especially with collaborative, small majors like these, they want to create a diverse class so being yourself and telling your story is all they want really.
Awesome! Good luck!Thanks! Just submitted yesterday
