The Tepper community is dynamic and unique. Each community member’s individual journey has shaped them into classmates who are collaborative, supportive and inclusive.

Is there anything else that you would like to share with the Admissions Committee as we evaluate your application? If you believe your credentials and essays represent you fairly, you should not feel obligated to answer this question.
This essay is intended to provide a place for you to add information that you think is important but is not covered elsewhere in the application. This could include clarification of your employment or academic record, choice of recommenders or helpful context for the admissions committee in reviewing your application.
If you are a re-applicant, use the optional essay to explain how your candidacy has strengthened since your last application.
