Hey, I'm worried about the main essay... I've chosen one of their topics... but the essay isn't telling anything about myself, like the other college application essays (like how I've deal with a 'feels-like-the-end-of-the-world' situation, my most meaningful extracurricular activity, etc etc...) - ok, maybe it shows my creativity, but... uhm, you know what I'm talking about...
Should I ask them to send an additional essay, with a conventional topic? Or send only the UChicago topic essay? Or maybe throw away my UChicago essay and send only a conventional essay?
Could somebody who have already passed at UChicago, or really know how they evaluate the applications, answer this thread please? I really really really want to go to UChicago... How were your UChicago essays?
