do you guys repeat the prompt at the beginning of each essay? e.g. my first essay looks like:

Describe your career progress to date and your future short-term and long-term career goals. How do you expect a Wharton MBA to help you achieve these goals, and why is now the best time for you to join our program? (1,000 words)

(my essay)

Yes, although its not required.

And on your final PDF, there's a 1-2 word watermark that goes on each page outlining which essay you're answering.

Kellogg requires you to repeat the prompt though.

I refuse to allow my creative self to be hindered by these constricting 'themes'. Ok, back to reality: I'm just not that great a writer :-)

How close are you to submitting? I'm going to upload my essays. Any specific formatting guidelines for Wharton? I don't recall seeing any...

No formatting guidelines. I ended up using 12 pt Times New Roman and double-spaced just to make it super easy for them to read, since the word count guidelines made length really specific.

Don't worry about the prompts since each page will have a watermark with the essay topic on it. I repeated the essay prompts anyway.
