University of Chicago Changed its 2016-2017 Essay Questions

UchicagoUniversity of Chicago recently released its new essay prompts for the 2016-2017 season. It's always a boon to have the essay questions released early in the season, except in cases like this where the prompts get revised after their initial release. If you're diving into the writing process, make sure to recheck the essay prompts, as the 5th option just changed! You can find the new prompt below:

Vestigiality refers to genetically determined structures or attributes that have apparently lost most or all of their ancestral function, but have been retained during the process of evolution. In humans, for instance, the appendix is thought to be a vestigial structure. Describe something vestigial (real or imagined) and provide an explanation for its existence.

This prompt (or, for that matter, the one that this one replaced) will probably not be the most popular pick, but it's always good to know your options!
