Thanks for your tips so far. Theyve been very valuable. I'm working on Darden's application and one of the questions asks to "Describe a significant maturing experience"
Now I know pulling experiences from high school is not recommended but due to the nature of this question is this acceptable. I mean most of us do mature and realize responsibility when in high school. The experience I plan to use is not really from high school but more from that period of time in my life.
Just wanted to see what you thought. Naturally I do not expect to put anything else from high school in any of the other questions.
Thanks in advance,
It depends on what the experience was. If it was truly distinctive and life-altering--like some traumatic event that most people don't experience--then it would probably work. Otherwise, you should probably seek a more recent example.
