Applicants take great care with writing their essays by teaming up with advisors and mentors that can help with their writing, but how does the admissions committee look at this section?

Dr. Morales and Mr. Maldonado discuss how they review essays in an application, list areas that are assessed in the essays, and give advice on how to brainstorm your response to the prompt inquiring how you can contribute to the diversity of the class.
