New essay prompt for Fall 2018 applicants

We are excited to announce a third* topic choice for our required essay:

Many students choose HMC because they don’t want to give up their interests outside of STEM and because they’ve seen exciting connections between their work in STEM and their work in the Humanities, Social Sciences and the Arts – or HSA as we call it at HMC. Tell us about your dream HSA class. Your answer might (but doesn’t have to) include projects you could do, texts you might want to read, or topics you would want to explore.

What do you think? Are you glad for the additional choice? We hope so!

*Please see the Required Additional Writing page to see the two other topic choices for the required essay, as well as the prompt for the required short answer response.
