What global issue would be best suited for my college application essay? (Details inside)
I am in the process of applying to Georgetown’s Walsh School of Foreign Service for a major in International Politics. Each different school at Georgetown requires a supplemental essay. For the school of foreign service, the essay topic is:
Briefly discuss a current global issue, indicating why you consider it important and what you suggest should be done to deal with it.
I know that as someone applying to a school in foreign service, I should be knowledgeable about global issues, but I am having trouble picking an issue because the only current global issues that come to mind are problems that I don’t feel I can offer a solution to (i.e. Palestinian statehood, failing global economy). I was hoping the collective might have some suggestions.
I’m not asking for solutions to the problem or opinions on issues, I’m just looking for a good place to start.
Thanks in advance!
