Hi, I was trying to do Northwestern's secondary, and I'm just stuck on the last essay question which asks how you would contribute to the school if excepted. I just have no clue what kind of answer to put for that. Any ideas would help. Thanks!

How about anything that makes you unique? What might your future classmates like about you? I wrote about being from a small town, and bringing a different perspective to downtown Chicago, if that helps. :cool:

Imagen you are the Dean of Northwestern. It is 5 years hence, the "real" you has just graduated and you as Dean are writing a year book entry for each person. When you get to the real you, what do you as Dean write? What have your NW classmates said about you in the yearbook? What have the people that new you well said (ie very personal aspects) and what about the people who only had passing familiarity written about you in our imaginary yearbook?

These people will only remember what is unique about you, what stood out, what you *contributed*. Do you have a unique point of view? Special experiences? Do you add diversity? Are there any past events that demonstrate this?
