This is one of OSU's supplemental essay prompts:

"Contemporary higher education reflects a tension between preparing for a meaningful life and preparing for a career. How has education empowered you to make your life meaningful while helping you prepare for your career?"

I am really unsure how to approach this prompt. Would it be reasonable to talk about how working for a higher education and interacting with my peers/professors has made me develop traits/ethics that would enable me to live a meaningful life? Or is that totally out of the ballpark?

Thanks! I appreciate the help
