Global Context/Experiential


  • Promising:
    • “While volunteering for a bilingual tax preparer’s office in Middletown, I learned about the difficult migration history of a Venezuelan and Sudanese family” or
  • Promising:
    • “While studying abroad in Taiwan, I participated in a skill-building program for Chinese immigrants”
  • Probably not experiential enough:
    • “I researched the plight of Syrian refugees in Turkey and wrote a paper about it for an independent research project.”
  • Good start but needs more thought:
    • “I studied abroad in London last semester.”
