This is another thing medical schools like to delve into - your ability to work with a team.
Schools may ask about a time when you used teamwork to solve a problem or overcome a challenge (like above).
Although, there was never chance to examine the response and students were encouraged to accept the answer as correct.
I believe in this situation, diversity was overlooked.
In a recent class I took at Columbia, I found that diversity was forgotten.
The class consisted of students from various racial and ethnic backgrounds, each with a story different from my own.
Depending on how many schools you are applying to, once your application does get verified, your inbox will seemingly immediately explode with secondaries.
Many people feel that they have to submit their secondaries right away (more on that next month), but the sheer volume of essays can be overwhelming.
An acknowledgement of diversity allows for students and teachers to feel free to question and observe the learning at hand.
In a media arts/liberal education, this type of learning should be foundational in order to achieve supposed goals promised to the student when he or she applied.
