Sounds like it's some sort of diversity program...which automatically disqualifies me since I'm asian and that's technically not a URM.
And because the essay question is: Describe a challenge you've faced and how you've reacted.
The best essay-worthy challenge I can think of is "The university denied my initial proposal for a new student organization so I had to try REALLY HARD to get it approved the second time"
Which wouldn't stand a chance once someone submitted a "I got a 3.9 even though my parents are alcoholics, my siblings needed me to support them, I'm on the varsity soccer team and I did all that while working my way through college to pay for it"
I got it this morning. I'd like to believe it might help if you don't know what you're getting yourself into. I haven't responded and I don't think I will. Do you plan to? Also, it doesn't sound like much of a diversity program to me. I think everyone has had a real challenge they've faced.
