  1. They are already the product of an intense educational experience.
  2. They bring diversity training and experience with diverse perspectives.
  3. They have resilience and are trained problem solvers; some have also received leadership training.
  4. They are working toward a mission and are focused on accomplishing their academic goals.
  5. They are service-oriented, volunteering more frequently than any other student demographic.

In addition to explaining these strength, they also thoughtfully discuss the challenges that these students face. You can read more here.
