They are 1,000 characters each- basically 2 good sized paragraphs. Here are the questions: 1) We know you work incredibly hard, go to great lengths to excel on and off the field- but why? Where does your hunger to succeed come from? 2) What did you do to overcome an academic or athletic challenge and what were the results? 3) Tell us about something you are most proud of, whether it is an achievement or an impact you made for your team, your school, your family, or your community. 4) Tell us about a defining moment in your life that has taught you a life lesson and helped shape who you are by guiding your actions

*I know that the application actually has different deadline times posted. For Conrad students, we are using NOON. We are not playing the time zone game, which can be deadly without full understanding.
