hey....i posted a thread on this earlier...look up pitt secondary, jainism....stuff like that. i ended up deciding to write the essay about my religion and stressed that tolerance is a very real issue in medicine. i checked with a bunch of people before i submitted the essay. it's actually one of my favorite mini-essays. go for it! just make sure that you don't sound preach-y. good luck!
Hey, I thought that maybe I could help y'all out. I am currently a first year at Pitt. As for the moral dilema question, I think I wrote about health care and the homeless with an example from my job as an EMT. I do know that you should really think about this question and be honest and sincere in your answer whatever you write. The essay is a big part of the interview decision. Hppy scribing.
