Karen：Cal Tech community的人始终遵守着一条honor guideline: “No member shall take unfair advantage of any other member of the Caltech community”。生活中虽然道德、正直、诚实这些概念听起来轻松且普通，却往往令人难以具象出来描述。大家可以思考一下自己曾经遇到过的一些困难和挑战，讲一讲是如何克服和解决的就好。以下这个例子，大家觉得哪个更好？答案显而易见。
1. Some students have a background, identity, interest, or talent that is so meaningful they believe their application would be incomplete without it. If this sounds like you, then please share your story.
2. The lessons we take from obstacles we encounter can be fundamental to later success. Recount a time when you faced a challenge, setback, or failure. How did it affect you, and what did you learn from the experience?
4. Describe a problem you’ve solved or a problem you’d like to solve. It can be an intellectual challenge, a research query, an ethical dilemma – anything that is of personal importance, no matter the scale. Explain its significance to you and what steps you took or could be taken to identify a solution.
