We've all seen the question that asks you to give an example of a challenge you have dealt with in the past, and how it has prepared you to meet challenges in the future... The thing is, I want to discuss the hard times I went through when my father was battling cancer, and that the experience was so devastating that I questioned my conviction and preparedness for medicine. Does anybody think that revealing this fact could be detrimental to my application? And has anybody else gone through a similar situation? How have you dealt with it and how has it prepared you for future challenges?
