Hey guys!!! So I am so excited to be applying to PA school this round! I am working on my supplemental essays and one of the schools I am applying to wants an essay based off of my life experiences. They specifically state that this is different from the personal statement and that it should be based on my life history and experiences in 3200 characters. I am kind of confused on where to begin.. Is it okay to include things from high school and my childhood? Also good luck to everyone applying this round!!!
Anyone else confused about how to answer this question: "Define diversity and give a personal example." As I am not from any kind of minority group, I'm not certain how I would have a "personal example" of "diversity". I have written several essays for other programs about the importance of diversity in healthcare/in general, and about how it should be promoted/celebrated, and I have had no problem writing those essays as this is something I am passionate about. I am just confused about the vagueness of the question and about what would qualify as a personal example. Again, I think this question is super important, but I just want to make sure I fully understand the prompt before answering. I appreciate your input.
I am currently working on my supplemental essays for the individual schools I am applying to and nearly all of them ask why you chose to apply to that school.

Would really appreciate any tips or feedback anyone has on this topic! Thank you in advance!
