    hey...i have a question about the second loyola essay..
    the question is..."Describe briefly how you have dealt with a personal or academic problem you have encountered."

    so i can't really think of any major personal or academic problem that i could write about...what should i do? the only thing i have come up with is how i've overcome my shyness in the last few years...but i dont know if shyness is considered a personal problem.
    does anyone have any suggestions??
    thanks! :)

    You're in the same boat I'm in. In these situations I'm usually forced to default to my childhood, during which I had to move like 5 times in 10 years because my dad was in the military, which wasn't really a problem but I can't come up with anything else!

    Anyone else have this problem? (Hmm, maybe I'll write about the problem of not having any significant problem)

  5. btw, i'm not applying to loyola, but i think that's a great question.

    you could just write about a class you had trouble in because you didn't like the teacher, time of day, etc. that might be kind of a cop-out though - personal problems are prolly more interesting.

    -history with drugs/alchohol?
    -family problems?
    -relationships?

    they're more interested in how you respond to your problems..do you back away, sidestep, tackle it, etc.
