For the personal statement, under the personal experience, I was planning ot write about my 6 years in scouting. However, perhaps do they want something more specific, like a certain event? I feel like I could give a good before and after reflection of my scouting life. I can really describe how it contributed to my personal development and integrity. Also, how important is the essay in comparison to grades/scholastic activities? I feel like English and writing are simply not my strong points.
