College essay question

In your application, you may have mentioned an extraordinary talent/skill or academic achievement. This may include participation in Junior Olympics, national debate competitions, recognition for musical talent, etc. Please take this opportunity to share with us more detailed information about the level of your achievement, depth of participation, and passion for this particular area.
I was wondering for a question like this if it was acceptable to write about how I dual enrolled at a local community college while juggling my duties for a leadership position at JROTC and school work with Ap classes?

    If your essay premise of DE and juggling leadership duties is relevant to your talent/skill or academic achievement mentioned in your personal insight essay, then yes include it.

    I would consider it a great addition! Colleges love people who are hard working, and I think it would definitely be categorized as an excellent achievement. I may not be the most qualified to answer the question since I never had to an admissions essay, but I would say sharing your experience could only help you out when it comes to getting in.
