Hi! I'm applying to transfer for next year. I'm struggling to write Bennington's supplement essay: "Please provide a written response that organizes your ideas for your Bennington Plan." I intend on focusing on literature/writing, but I'm also interested in many other things. I'm having trouble figuring out how to develop a "plan" from scratch, especially because I don't know how what it should look like, or provide "reasons" for my interests. Do you all have any advice on how to go about this?

Hello! I actually answered this same question last term, you can see the the response here. In the end the plan process is very individual. What you write in the supplement will probably be very different than your actual plan. This question is really for us to see what you’re passionate about and how you think. And when in doubt:
