I get it. So many amazing applicants with great scores and experiences, gotta separate the wheat from the chaff. Gotta be unique. Inclusive. But the problem is the premed process (the traditional route, to clarify) and diversity do not mesh at all. You gotta be privileged to jump through many hoops, to even get to the position of applying. Instead of a meager 250 word essay asking us to show off our “diversity” like trophies on a shelf, how about make the MCAT and the admission process more affordable as a start. That would help with bringing real “diversity” to the class. Instead we are being asked to summarize in a paragraph what makes us “diverse” like an afterthought. Pfffff.
