■■■ am I supposed to write about. I’m from an upper-middle class family and I attend a private all-girls Catholic high school in California. I don’t have any real hardships or struggles, parents are happily married, we are financially stable, I’ve had all the opportunities I want, etc. I’m under the impression that to get accepted to really competitive California public unversities because of the budget cuts and smarter Californians overall, one has to have lots of hardships and extraordinary accomplishments. My close friend and I are wondering what do we put for that. I’m sure that will be a 200 word one but I still have no clue what to write! Haha “Dear UC, I’m not poor and I don’t have any hardships so you should accept me…”
What do y’all think?
