EssaySnark knows, this is a bit of a double-edged sword. UCLA has posted real-life examples (presumably from real-life applicants who they accepted) of the audio/video essay question that they had the last few years, which they’ve since made “optional.”Go check these out. (link updated 12/18/10)Those are actual submissions from the 2009-’10 application season. Pretty impressive…
So who the heck is EssaySnark, anyway?!
