“In a class of 127 highly qualified students, which of your personal characteristics will make you stand out as an individual? In contrast to the PharmCAS application and statement, which asks you to describe your skills, accomplishments, and future goals, we ask that you discuss your personal uniqueness. (4000 characters)
This essay should reflect who you are and what is meaningful to you. It should provide us with insight about your character and how you came to be the person you are today. Pay particular attention to describing the unique qualities and personal characteristics that you believe separate you from the other candidates. Like all writing segments of the application, this essay is also an opportunity to demonstrate a complex level of thought and critical thinking skills consistent with a professional, graduate-level degree program. Your discussion points should be presented in a logically cohesive manner and supported by relevant examples.”
This is the prompt for one of my pharmacy schools’ supplemental application. The word count requirement is not too much, but it has to be a strong essay. Upon our match, I can send more information as needed. Preferably, I want to mention qualities that would be ideal for grad schools such as leadership skills etc.
