Many applications now have a question, sometimes optional , geared to encouraging people with minority backgrounds or unusual educational or family histories to write about their background.  If you are an immigrant to the US, the child of immigrants or someone whose ethnicity is a minority in the US, you might find this question an interesting one to show how your background will add to the mix of perspectives at the program you are applying to. If you are applying after having an unusual experience for applicants like joining the military , becoming part of a dance troupe, or caring for an elderly relative, you can use your experience to evoke the way in which you will bring diversity to campus.

Your family’s culture, situation and traditions, and the way they have helped you develop particular character and personality traits are of interest, as well unusual experiences that have shaped you. Perhaps you have grown up with a strong insistence on respecting elders, attending family events or learning your parents’ native language and culture. Perhaps you are close to grandparents and extended family who have taught you how teamwork can help everyone survive. Perhaps you have had to face and deal with difficulties that stem from your parents’ values being in conflict with those of your peers. Perhaps teachers have not always understood the elements of your culture or outside-of-school situation and how they pertain to your school performance. Perhaps you have suffered discrimination and formed your values and personality traits around your success in spite of the discrimination. Perhaps you have learned skills from a lifestyle that is outside the norm–living in foreign countries as the child of diplomats or contractors, performing professionally in theater, dance, music or sports, or communicating with a deaf sibling.

    Understanding and explaining how your experience built your empathy for others, a strong will, and character is a good focus for the diversity question.

    Good afternoon, I am a 15 year old Latina applying to a summer enrichment program at Scripps, an all women’s college. I need to answer the following diversity essay prompt: Given your personal background, describe the qualities and accomplishments you would bring to the program.
    I need help on how to start I will be the first to attend college in my family, and for that reason I want to apply: to seem like a competitive student and potential candidate for a prestigious university or institution. Can someone please help me? I will appreciate any help.

    Over at Inside PA Training Paul wrote a wonderful blog post about the common pitfalls that many PA school applicants fall victim to while composing their PA school essay''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s.

    This is an excellent list because 8 years ago while I was applying to PA school I proved how adhering to each one of these elements was a guaranteed formula for failure.
