I was wondering if I should address a low 124 CARS score in a UCLA secondary which asks for any hardship that you would like the adcoms to consider. I read on different websites that say different things. I was hoping if I could gain some insight on this.
This is not what they mean by "hardship."

There were two prompts where they ask for a problem and hardship. I wrote transitioning into a new culture as an immigrant and how I overcame that as one of my challenges for my problem prompt but now I am starting to wonder if that might fit better into a hardship. TIA
A problem? A little more specifics would be helpful

This is a good way to get rejected immediately.

Describe a problem in your life. Include how you dealt with it and how it influenced your growth. (500 char)
Is there any hardship to which you would like the committee to give special attention in evaluating your application? (500 char)
I was wondering how to go about the two prompts since they both sound similar to me. Will the transition into a new society as an immigrant will be a hardship or a problem in life. I apologize in advance if there are other threads that address this issue already. Thank you so much
The bolded prompt could be for your immigrating here and dealing with the US and how it affected your schooling.

The first prompt apply to something else. Pay very careful attention to the red text.

Although these overlap, they are indeed two separate questions.
