St. John’s College has an admissions application process that puts an emphasis on the application essay. We know writer’s block is no fun, so some of the staff at the admissions office asked some current undergraduates to share what they wrote in their application. We found the responses warmhearted and genuine; we hope you find them helpful.

  2. B. Sharp, thanks for your comment. Can you elaborate more on what you mean?
