Students often write about professors and classes in these essays. While that’s not a terrible idea, it’s often a little off because, frankly, professors leave a school. Unless they have tenure, chances are they might be moving on. So, if you as an applicant talk about loving this one teacher or this one class, you aren’t really seeing the whole picture and gushing about something that might not exist in a year. So if there is a specific program, a class that’s always held, a professor who is the head of a department that you love, discuss them away but reciting names of people and courses like a list doesn’t show the college that you really understand the school, it just shows that you can use a website.
