Statement of Purpose Essay 1 – 750 word maximum
In no more than 750 words, describe why you are choosing to pursue an MSF degree. You may include information about what you hope to achieve while in the program and mention goals for after the program. The intent of this essay is to convey to the Admission Committee how the MSF will contribute to your goals, and how you will in turn contribute to the program. Focus your energy on painting a concise, complete, and well-thought-out picture of who you truly are, rather than present what you think the admissions committee is looking for in response to essay questions.
Optional Essay – 250 word maximum
