Journalism Majors?

I was wondering if anyone out there has applied and gotten into the Journalism option of the COM major, and if so, would be willing to share (or at least me a few tips regarding it) their little essay that you turn in with your application.

I'm applying Autumn quarter, and thought I would try to write the essay thing before school starts. But, I'm not entirely sure what they are looking for with the essay. I know the prompt is like, "short essay on what led you to apply" or something, so it's pretty open.

I hear a lot of people don't get accepted, so I'm wondering if there's anything I can do essay-wise to help my chances and would appreciate any tips or suggestions.
Also if you know anything about criteria for getting in, do you think my chances are pretty good with a 3.85 overall GPA and a 4.0 in COM 202?
