Students applying for the programs of Physician Assistant Science, Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy are required to submit an essay or a writing sample of 250 words minimum and may choose from Options 1-5 (the essay options in this application mirror those in The Common Application® and are used by permission). You may choose to submit your essay as part of this application or submit them separately.
Option 1: Some students have a background or story that is so central to their identity that they believe their application would be incomplete without it. If this sounds like you, then please share your story.
Option 2: The lessons we take from failure can be fundamental to future success. Recount an incident or time when you experienced failure. How did it affect you, and what lessons did you learn?
Option 3: Reflect on a time when you challenged a belief or idea. What prompted you to act? Would you make the same decision again?
Option 4: Describe a problem you've solved or would 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.
Option 5: Discuss an accomplishment or event, formal or informal, that marked your transition from childhood to adulthood within your culture, community, or family.
A letter of recommendation is no longer required for admissions consideration, unless in rare cases when the admissions committee specifically requests this of the student.
