Anyone applying to French business schools? SAI Application [#permalink] New post 01 Aug 2012, 17:49
I'm working on the SAI (Service des Admissions Internationals) which is for EMLYON, HEC, and ESCP.

I encountered their essays for this year:


-What achievements are you most proud of?
-Describe a situation where you failed. What lessoned did you learn from it?
-Why is your application an added-value for SAI member schools?
-Describe extra-curricular activities over last few years (leisure time, social life, clubs, volunteer work, etc.)?

Any tips for writing these?

I know that many interviewers ask the "what's your greatest weakness" and the failure question is similar, what exactly are they looking for?

What can you brag about with regards to "added-value" for SAI member schools? And for achievements? I know they're all different but what kinds of things should I write about?

I have plenty work experience but not too many extra-curricular activities, what can I write here?

Thank you! :-D
