UC personal insight questions & quick tips

Are you applying to a UC school this year? Here are some quick tips to keep in mind and some resources to help as you start writing your personal insight responses:

  • Application opens August 1, 2016 for Fall 2017 applicants
  • Students may continue working on their application and will be able to submit November 1 – 30, 2016
  • New personal insight questions!
    • Eight available questions, applicants choose four (350 max word count on each response)
    • These are shorter responses, so take out the fluff and get to the heart of YOU
    • Give yourself time to write multiple drafts
  • If you are applying to a specific program:
    • Check for additional requirements within the program (check specifically on each UC campus’ website!) 
    • UC San Diego has six campuses, research online ahead of time to get a feel for what is right for you
