When does ‘Yale’s’ ‘Essay’ format change?
Posted On July 29, 2021
The format of the Yale supplemental essays has not changed, according to a tweet from its authors.
The essays are still published as separate papers and available for free.
However, they now have the following format: “Yale College of Letters, Arts, and Sciences (YCLAS) invites you to write an essay for publication in a journal published by Yale University.
You will receive a draft and a cover letter which will contain a summary of your work and a short introductory paragraph explaining why you think you deserve consideration for the publication.
The article will be published in the fall.
Please write no more than 50 words in the essay, and no more that 3,000 words in total.
The essay must be published by November 14, 2019.”
The first draft of the essay will appear on the Yale campus in late 2019.
The final manuscript will be ready for publication by mid-2020.
The deadline for submissions to be considered for publication is April 15, 2021.
The original essay was written in January 2018.
This is the first time the format has changed since the first essay was published in 2014.
The university has been trying to increase the number of supplemental essays in its online journals since it launched the format in 2013.
The format was designed to encourage students to pursue their writing interests through online writing platforms like Coursera and Udacity.
The online format was the first of its kind for undergraduate writing, and the Yale online format has been in the works for a while.
According to a 2017 article in The Yale Daily News, Yale was considering an essay format change in 2018 but dropped the idea when they saw the popularity of the online format.
The first online essay was an introduction to an anthology published in December 2018 by a group of academics.
The second online essay by a Yale graduate was published on September 10, 2019.
Yale is not the only college that has changed its format for supplemental essays.
Other schools have also changed their offerings, with some universities changing their formats entirely and others adding a supplemental essay format.
In 2018, Northwestern University released a set of essays that focused on “the relationship between education and citizenship.”
These essays were also available for a limited time in the form of a web-only version.
The content was not altered, but the university did not publish the web-exclusive version in its journal.
