Hi, my question is general for an essay related to describing your favorite subject (. I’m not applying to any UCs). It actually is about Common App Essay Prompt 1 (interest, background). Do you think that writing about the subject is a good idea? I mean, they know (or suppose) I like it because of my grades, SAT scores, etc. Is it worth using the essay to explain them how much I love Physics or Math? Also, should I write about both Math and Physics or should I just focus on one? I ask about it because I really, really love them and I’m not sure which one of them to choose. Thank you.
California has one of the best state university systems in the country, and three of the schools below made my list of top public universities . The nine universities that offer undergraduate degrees are listed here from the lowest to highest acceptance rate. Keep in mind that the acceptance rate isn't necessarily an accurate representation of selectivity. UCSD, for example, has a higher acceptance rate than UCSB, but it actually requires significantly higher grades and standardized test scores to get in.
