Thanks Ryme... Your direction helped with that Tuck essay though! I'm thinking more about the original version with maybe some minor editing for UNC's essay number #2:
"Describe the major obstacles or challenges you have faced in pursuit of your goals. Tell us how you addressed these challenges and how they have shaped you. (800 words maximum)"
Overcoming a major health problem, socio-economic diversity, and now majoring in liberal arts but wanting to be in investment management seem to fit this essay well.
