Hi everybody:
I want to ask about the "Describe a significant maturing experience" essay?
What type of essay should I write about? Is it okie if I reuse the ethical essay I wrote for other schools?

Is that essay a significant learning experience? If so, yes, but you will need to edit it so it's clear you are not writing about ethics but instead about a maturing experience.

edit: I checked the darden essays I wrote I never submitted, ethics could fit here or in #2.

Rhyme, just a thought, what did you write about? Work experience, something relates to your life, or ethics or something else?....
I wish I could write half as good as you can....

Well, keep in mind that your essays should be like a chapter in a book. If you've already written a lot about your work experience, this might be a place to talk about something unrelated - a sport, or an extracurricular or something else. If that doesn't fit, use something work related. Similarly if you've had two (or three or four) jobs, and you've only talked about your current job, maybe this is a place to use something from a previous position. That said, dont try and making a round peg fit in a square hole. I thus chose to write about a personal experience I had - if you want specifics you can PM me, but I'm not 100% comfortable posting here (its pretty specific)

Now that I think about it, ethics is a bad subject to pick here - you certainly don't want to imply that ethics is something you learned through an experience - ethics is something that should just be intrinsic to who you are.
