Short Essay

Please answer the following questions.

  1. After reading the description of IQS, what seems most appealing to you about this program?

  2. What was your favorite class in high school? What about the subject interested you the most?

  3. Some courses are hard because there is a lot of work and some are hard because the material is conceptually complex. Discuss how you handled a course from high school that fell into the latter category.

  4. What do you need to do to become a better scholar? In your answer, please look beyond the standard responses of “procrastination” (or other time-management issues) and “perfectionism”.

  5. What is your most important strength?

  6. What do you see yourself doing 10 years from now?

  7. Is there anything else you would like us to know?
