hey guys, just curious--how did you respond to that Chicago question about "what is the most difficult thing you've ever encountered"? I was a bit confused, since my most difficult situation is probably something pretty personal that I don't particuarly want to share with the admissions committee, a situation I think a lot of people would be in . . . do they expect you to go into it anyway, just so they have an easy way to bring up a tough topic an interviews, or . . .? I ended up using something more benign which is probably not truthfully the most difficult thing I've ever encountered, but come on!
