Dickinson's writing supplement is optional but recommended for all applicants. Early Decision candidates are strongly encouraged to complete the writing supplement. Please indicate whether you intend to complete a writing supplement. If you will not be completing the writing question, please select No here and submit this form as-is.

In addition to curriculum, grades and activities Dickinson's Admissions Committee looks for purpose, potential and self-reflection. Describe the intersection of your values, interests, and accomplishments with your goals at Dickinson.

If you elect to submit the writing supplement, please write as much or as little as you feel is necessary to fully answer the question. There is no recommended minimum or maximum word count (the technical limit of 1,000 words is simply meant to provide more than enough space)
