Duke has the optional essay that has the following prompt
Duke University seeks a talented, engaged student body that embodies the wide range of human experience; we believe that the diversity of our students makes our community stronger. If you’d like to share a perspective you bring or experiences you’ve had to help us understand you better-perhaps related to a community you belong to or your family or cultural background-we encourage you to do so. Real people are reading your application, and we want to do our best to understand and appreciate the real people applying to Duke.
I wrote an essay about me being a part of a 3 person announcement crew and how I added to my school community by bringing positivity to my school community through the announcements. I think it’s a nice “community” essay. Should I add it? I feel that this prompt might have something to do with diversity, but there are also sections in the prompt about experiences related to a community. I’m just using it to add more color to who I am as a person. Would it be bad if I added this essay?
