2013-2014 NYU Writing Supplement
One long response. (Required, 500 word max for entire piece, Paste in.)
NYU’s global network of campuses, schools, colleges, and programs, provides an unrivaled urban university experience to cultivate our students’ intellectual curiosity and to help them achieve their future career goals.
In evaluating your candidacy for admission, we are interested in making the best match possible with all that NYU has to offer. As a result, we are curious to learn about your academic and personal interests and how those interests relate to what we offer in the idea capitals of the world in which NYU campuses are located.
Please address, in your (ONE) essay response, the following:
1. Given your NYU campuses of interest – whether they are your primary and alternate home campuses of interest or where you would like to study away while you are a student – where, exactly, would you like to study at NYU – and why?
2. Whether you are undecided or you have a definitive plan of study in mind, what are your academic interests and how do you plan to explore them at NYU?
You may have one or many campuses, schools, colleges, programs, and/or areas of interest, so please elaborate on your interests.
500 words or 500 characters?
And it’s 500 per response, right?
Yes, it 500 words for each selection.
On the first question, is it asking for which NYU campus like New York, Shanghai, or Abu Dabai? or is asking a specific building or location in a campus?
Also, the response is one long essay in less than 500 words addressing the two question?
These questions are for clarity?
It’s a combined essays to answer all in one.
So the total word limit is 1000?
Can i write one complete response which answers both questions or do i have to address the questions individually?
One response this year.
I personally think the NYU prompt this year is terrible. These questions are quite dry and I find it will be difficult for students to write with creativity and voice.
If my single response to both questions sums up in 1114 words.
Will it be fine?
No, it can’t go over the max.
Just to be clear, the final piece that I submit on the application should be 1000 words or less?
Not for the Common App. It’s 650 word max.
I just tried to submit a 1000 word piece on the Common App. Wouldn’t work. 500 word limit.
the limit is 650.
so, for the nyu writing supplement, is it a 500 word limit or a 1000 word limit? I understand I have to address both questions in one essay, but I’m still confused as to which of these word limits apply for the WRITING SUPPLEMENT (not the common app essay)
It’s 500 words total.
So it should be 500 words for the first and another 500 for the second question? Or is it 500 in total?
Also, how tough is NYU on word limits?
It is an absolute maximum. And it is 500 words total.
