The quality of Rice's academic life and the Residential College System are heavily influenced by the unique life experiences and cultural traditions each student brings. What perspective do you feel that you will contribute to life at Rice?
I've written probably 12 essays for my applications, including Ivy essays and such. And I simply cannot write this one. The Word document on my computer where I've started is called Rice_UGH.
Anyone have advice...? I don't even know how to describe my "perspective"... or how it will contribute to Rice.... Sigh. I don't really know what they are even asking me to write about. My cultural traditions can be summed up as typical, uninteresting, and certainly not representative of my personality.
