Essays:
UC Prompt 1: Talked about my culture of being both Pacific Islander (Guam) and Filipino, and why it's important to me and what I've done to spread my culture's benefits to my community.
UC Prompt 2: Talked about my passion for community service/helping others, and my leadership in my school's community service organization.

I was in contact with a Cal admissions officer via email over the course of 2 months. She gave me feedback, and said my rewrites were fantastic. Hopefully she's right and my PS's pull through.

Won't be majoring in Engineering.
