About this livestream


What makes an applicant 'diverse?' How should you approach diversity in your essays?

Well, to find out, join Shravya for a breakdown of 'diversity' or 'community' essay type, including: what admissions officers are looking for, when to include school-specific info, and general tips for writing. She'll also go through an essay example or two on-air so you can see how admissions officers would critique this kind of essay.

Once the presentation is complete, Shravya will open up the floor for a Q&A session to answer any questions you may have about diversity-themed essays.

Undergrad College: Rice University '20

Work Experience: During my time at Rice, I mentored dozens of high school students through the college application process, along with editing essays and tutoring students for the ACT/SAT. I also interned at a medical technology startup, conducted research in Brazil, and gave a TEDx talk. I recently finished applying to medical school; I've been admitted to multiple schools, and will be starting in the Fall.

My Admissions Story: I remember feeling very blindsided by the admissions process and not knowing where to begin. I hope that sharing my experiences and some of the things I’ve learned along the way will help guide other students in a similar boat.
