Question three for INSEAD is:
Describe a situation taken from school, business, civil or military life, where you did not meet your personal objectives, and discuss briefly the effect. (250 words approx.)

I already have a topic for this essay that is work-related, but I was just thinking -- I'm also doing an optional essay to explain a family situation that severely affected my GPA. Would it be better to use this space for that topic instead, eliminating the optional essay? Or is that a more of an extenuating matter that is not directly related to "school life" as mentioned in the question topic above?

Suffice to say, in both the work and family/GPA situations, I learned lessons from objectives I did not meet.
