This may seem like an odd question, but it is something I have been pondering for awhile, and if any of you can give me some advice, I would be very appreciative. Anyway, so I have an interview in a few days at my top choice school (yay!). And, I am quite certain that they might ask me why I want to go there. Now, I have many, many reasons why I want to attend this school, but one of them is that it would enable me to be very close to my family. The reason I'd like to be close to my family is because my mother was recently diagnosed with lung cancer, and I would prefer to be close by should something happen. My problem is that I don't know how an admissions committee will look at this information. Should I tell them why I'd like to be close to my family? Will they see it as something that will be a huge distraction and thus detract from my overall application? I don't see it that way at all and if anything, it has strengthened my desire to go into medicine. But I guess I'm not sure how they will take this information. So, if you were in my position, would you say anything about this? Or would you not mention it at all?
