    I think highlighting the ways in which you are different from the "traditional" applicant would be the best way to answer it...did you major in something different, your ec's, background, second language, abroad experience, job experience, etc.

    Nothing. You already did with the application fee. Like I said, medical school is a business, and contributing will only mean that you're in the business yourself. Ultimately it is the patients who contribute.

    Some medical schools ask the question:

    "If you are accepted to X school in what ways will you contribute to the strength of the incoming class"

    So how would you answer that question?

    Sorry if my original question was confusing.

    I absolutely have a huge sense of humor; the first time a joke is told. In your instance you told the same joke as an above poster.
