UCLA additional statements

Postby soleilik » Sun Nov 13, 2011 3:17 pm

The UCLA application, in addition to the personal statement, also has several additional prompts. There is the Programmatic contribution, Disadvantage addendum, and the Optional addendum. I am going to submit a diversity statement under the Optional addendum, and I am wondering whether I should also submit a Disadvantage addendum because i have experienced socio-economic challenges. As for the Programmatic contribution, my personal statement already talks about the fact that I want to specialize in international law, and that UCLA's program is one of the best in the nation. Should I do a separate Programmatic contribution statement as well?
I don't mind doing multiple statements, but I am not sure whether UCLA admissions actually prefers applicants to submit so many statements. If anyone has any information regarding this, I will greatly appreciate!

Thank you, and good luck to everyone who's applying!

No need for a separate programmatic statement IMO as long as it's clear how/why you want to apply to a specific program.

As for disadvantage statement, I can't see it hurting you.
