Texas tech lubbock has 2 secondary essays: academic hardship (300 words) and hardship/adversity (300 words). My adversity essay that I have been using for most of my secondaries is a financial hardship which I also use to explain any academic/ extracurricular discrepancies. I am stuck on the academic hardship essay because my lowest grade in a course was a B. I know that definitely does not sound like low performance and I never dropped or retaken a course.

I have several options That I need help choosing.

  1. try to explain why I got B's instead of A's ( really difficult and I don't think I can do it in 300 words or even 100 words)
  2. write a new adversity essay and use my financial hardship for the academic hardship
  3. I wrote another essay for another secondary about a failure in one of my courses. Use that for my academic hardship.
  4. I wrote another essay for another secondary about my difficulty in working in a group filled with professionals initially but I learned something that made the experience really pleasant and would love to be part of something like it again. Use that for my adversity essay.

No to #4: medicine is a team sport
#1 doesn’t seem fruitful

thank you for the response.

about the 4th one, it was how initially it was difficult. but I learned something that made the experience really pleasant and would love to be part of something like it again.

I was leaning towards the 3rd one. I just need more input.
