Logically connect your past experience with the short-term goals and the short-term goals with long-term goals. Show how your professional strengths, abilities and interests are ideally suited for the career you have chosen. Identify the skills and experiences you need to build up in order to achieve the goals and show how the specific parts of the program will help you acquire them.



Essay 2: We all belong to different communities representing various aspects of who we are, including groups we belong to, where we come from, how we think, what we believe, and how we see and experience the world. The process of discovery is strengthened when people with diverse perspectives and life experiences come together to share and learn from one another, negotiate differences, and engage in diplomacy.

How have you dealt with differences in your personal or professional relationships? In what ways will you contribute to the community and learning environment by embracing your authentic self while respecting others?

EssayLever Suggestions:

Recall an experience when you leveraged diversity in your group to create a favourable outcome.



(Optional) We encourage you to tell us more about who you are so we can get to know you as a person and potential member of the Carolina community. Use this essay to convey information that you may not have otherwise been able to in the application. Your response should be no longer than 200 words.

EssayLever Suggestions:

Don't summarize your application here. Imagine if the admissions committee meets you after reading your application and the other essays and says that they are undecided and will base their decision on your answer to this question. What more can you say without repeating anything else in the application about why they should select you? Take this as your last opportunity to influence their decision.
