Hi, can anyone shed some light as to what specifically goes into this essay:

Please elaborate on one key information that you believe is important for xxx college to accept your candidacy.

Is it to be used to focus on a particular strength and elaborate on it?
or is it to explain a gap or something negative on profile?
or is it asking something else??

I am in a jam :?

Keep it positive. What is the thing you are most proud of? What do you most want them to know? How does that piece of key information show them that you belong there?

Best,
Linda
