submitting an additional essay when its not required? NEED YOUR HELP!
So, I know that I definitely want to go into medicine, more specifically environmental medicine. While I am strong in science and my EC's definitely show a passion for the environment (including two summers of research on environmental factors of disease), I don't have any volunteering in the hospital or anything like that like many of the other applicants I see on CC. I hoped to convey my reasons behind pursuing a career in medicine in my supplemental essay, as my main essay is on coming from a low-income family and witnessing abuse and these life experiences (no matter how much it sucks) are things that have helped me become more resilient and motivated. Some programs do require a supplemental essay, but the University of Rochester program does not even give that option in their supplemental form. Should I submit my medicine essay along with my main essay anyway, or would the adcoms frown upon that? I would GREATLY appreciate ur help!9 replies
