The University of Michigan admissions essays are out for 2013-2014 and we at Ivy Coach have got them for you. In the fist supplemental essay prompt for the University of Michigan, which is the same as in previous years, students are asked: “Everyone belongs to many different communities and/or groups defined by (among other things) shared geography, religion, ethnicity, income, cuisine, interest, race, ideology, or intellectual heritage. Choose one of the communities to which you belong, and describe that community and your place within it.” We in the admissions community call this one the — wait for it — communities essay. This supplemental essay prompt is required of all applicants to UMich and should be approximately 250 words in length, although the length has not yet been confirmed for the 2013-2014 admissions cycle.
The second University of Michigan admissions essay prompt reads: “Describe the unique qualities that attract you to the specific undergraduate College or School (including preferred admission and dual degree programs) to which you are applying at the University of Michigan. How would that curriculum support your interests?” This, too, is the same question as in previous years and it is required of all applicants to the University of Michigan. While the length for this essay also has not been confirmed just yet for the 2013-2014 admissions cycle, it will likely be 500 words maximum.
