Okay, so here’s the prompt:
The quality of Rice’s academic life and the residential college system is heavily influenced by the unique life experiences and cultural traditions each student brings. What perspective do you feel that you will be able to share with others as a result of your own life experiences and background? Cite a personal experience to illustrate this.
Yeah. Well, basically, I can’t think of anything extremely significant to write about. I could sit here and tell them why I’m a great person and blah blah, but I know that’s not what they’re looking for. I’ve lived in Houston my whole life. I haven’t been through anything traumatizing, save junior high and high school, but who hasn’t dealt with that? Anyways, I just feel so average looking at this question. Can anyone give me ideas on what I might be able to write about? Anything would help.
