When considering students for admission, selective colleges are looking for individuals who will benefit the entire student body by bringing passion, talent, and diverse experiences.
For you, the main question is this: how can you show colleges that you’re a unique, engaged person who is committed to making a difference in the areas you care about?
Answer: by showcasing your main interests in life! Use this section of the application to show off the various ways you’ve worked to develop and expand your interests outside of the classroom, or to highlight your non-academic activities. Doing so will show colleges more about your passions and experiences, and give them insight into why you would be a benefit to their community. Don’t forget to include any academic and summer programs you participated in, and specifically cite the courses that you attended as a Duke TIP participant.
