Essay 1: In no more than 250 words, please tell us why BU is a good fit for you and what specifically has led you to apply for admission?

Ever since my mother came back from studying in Harvard for a summer business program, she had been telling me non-stop about the benefits of studying in Boston, a city so ripe with students eager to learn and a rich historic background to boot. I ventured to find out if it was as impressive as she made it out to be. It was all that she said and more, I instantly found myself wanting to study at BU the most. With its diverse population and students eager to reach their dreams I feel like it's the best place for me to grow and flourish, especially in an international setting. As a student who is highly motivated and eager to learn, I feel that BU is the best choice for me to really prepare myself to go out into the real world and give back to society.

That is why, what I am most interested in is the Study Abroad Program and the major-market internships as well as the student-run communication agencies especially the PR Lab. Already I am excited to gain valuable hands-on experience working to help clients in the oldest student-run public relations agency As a student who is highly motivated and eager to learn, I feel that BU is the best choice for me to really prepare myself to go out into the real world and give back to society.

Delete or rephrase unimportant information. It isn't necessary to mention these two things: 1) your mother's summer program at Harvard and 2) the influence she had on your eventual discovery of BU. 61 words that could have been used to describe why BU is a good fit for you, either that or a substantial enough reason to apply.

It was all that she said and more, I instantly found myself wanting to study at BU the most.


You could bold the most to make it clear that BU is your first choice. This will improve your chances of admittance.

Be concise. Separate these ideas into individualized sentences; that is, you could use those aforementioned 61 words to explain why its programs, internships, and agencies interest you.

On the surface, it seems as if its oldness appeals to you the most. You could rephrase this sentence.

As a student who is highly motivated and eager to learn, I feel that BU is the best choice for me to really prepare myself to go out into the real world and give back to society.


You could give your claims credence by explaining in greater detail how BU can help you prepare for the world and contribute positively to society.

I feel like your mother is the dominant speaker of this little essay. It should be, instead, begin without any preface and with why you see yourself as a good fit to BU, and then segway to much broader points
