    WatchaMaCallit, I think Scooby's right. I am working on the secondary also. My obvious guess is they're asking you if you've had any exposure to social/racial/economic groups other than your own (whatever that may be). They're probably not assuming you're white, either. If you were black and led a hard life, would you be able to deal with people from another "walk of life." I don't think they're rednecks, I think they're being pretty realistic. By the way, are you from Ohio? Good luck!!!!! Hope the essay writing gets easier (for both of us!!).
     
  6. hi atc2md,

    thanks for the help, u 2 scoobydoo

    I am not from ohio, from San diego actually, and diversity is everywhere....

    so that why I am somewhat baffled by this question? because this isn't even an issue here....

    which makes me wonder, is ohio not diverse enough that they ask this kind of question from their residents? :confused:
