UChicago essay

Does anyone know how important the UChicago supplement essay is (the one with the unique and quirky questions)? I'm not that great at creative writing but really want to attend UChicago, so how much do admission officers there use this essay when looking at an applicant?

So I am not authorative on this so take it with a grain of salt but essays/rec letters make anywhere from 15%-30% (at holistic schools that care about essays and letters). CV on their YT channel posted a video about the common app which is worth a look and for help with essays try Cvs peer essay review service or even the essay guides both under the essay tab at top of screen.
