Help.....how do you answer this question?
well, why do you think you deserve to be there, what do you have to offer, and why do you stand out? this is your chance to sell yourself to your heart's content.
They should accept me, because if they don't, they'd be rejecting the most qualified African American in the state of Idaho. Did I mention that I'm probably the only black applicant in the state? According to the AAMC's statistics, there were no black applicants from Idaho last year, nor the year before. If the trend holds, then I'm the only one.

"Because I'm a harder worker, will be a team player, and become a better doctor...did I mention that when I graduate I will give lots of money to the school?"

i think that someone like me interested in X, Y, Z with experiences in A, B, C can excel in your school's program because it offers P, Q, R, S, and T.
I don't think it is possible or appropriate for anyone to tell you how to answer that question. Just answer it intelligently and honestly.
Since we are all medical school applicants and by definition have the same basic goals and aspirations, I like to think of this question as more of a question asking what you enjoy in your life. What makes you well rounded. I approach this by talking about my interests outside of medicine (as well as within). Something to think about, its a hard one. Cheers.
Well..I think I'd tell them why they should pick me over other applicants. Straight forward, right?If they dont' like my answer, I don't like their school, I suppose.
I told 'em I race cars on the weekends...I guess it worked!
