SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hello everyone, I am currently doing my McGill entrance essay for dentistry and I'm having the hardest time figuring out what they're expecting from one of their questions: "Tell us about your personal development: overall life experience, work experience, extracurricular activities, adversity faced and how you dealt with it, etc. (0.5 page)" I'm not sure how to approach this question. So far I discussed the following: - how I became interested in dentistry - my work/employment history (did not go into my responsibilities/skills related to work as I discussed this in another question) - volunteer/shadowing history (again I did not try to go into responsibilities because I put this on my resume) - some examples of challenges that I faced as a student and while working Already this took up about half a page. I'm not sure if this is what the question is asking or if they want me to discuss how I developed as a person. It seems like such a broad question and I feel that if I try to discuss everything, I'll just end up making a list of my experiences... Any help will be much appreciated. Thank you in advance!!
