Where is the best place to find secondary essay prompts? I see there’s some prep companies that want you to pay, and some sites have past essay prompts. Is there even a way to get a definitive list for the current application cycle?

Thanks for the help!

The prompts from this cycle are in the school specific threads for most schools. Most schools use the same prompts every cycle or change them just a bit or add a new question. But basically they remain the same.

Refer to the school-specific threads, the secondary prompts will be listed at the top by DataKing

This^^^^^. To the extent any change for the current cycle, no one will know until they are released. Someone on SDN will certainly get them early, and they will be the first post in the new cycle's school specific thread. You will also see them when the schools send them to you after you submit your primary!

No need to pay, and what is on SDN is as close to a reliable, comprehensive list you will find anywhere. In fact, it wouldn't be shocking to learn that the prep companies are pulling them from SDN!
