Quirky Supplement Questions - Responding to The Atlantic 

by Carol Barash, PhD, on Oct 11, 2013 9:55:00 AM


When we read The Atlantic's article, "Applying to College Shouldn't Require Answering Life's Great Questions," on the difficulty of answering quirky supplement questions, we couldn't help talking about it. Then our intern taped it.

Carol Barash, PhD and founder of Story2, and Sophie Herron, STC Instructor, discuss how students can build supplement essays that answer difficult questions.


Shout out to Michelle Sheu, who is a killer intern.
