Hello,

I have searched the forum and could not find a topic with this question.:
What do you expect to be the greatest challenges associated with taking part in this program? How do you plan to deal with those challenges?
I do not know why I am having such a hard time with it, there are so many.
Can anyone give any suggestions or point me towards a thread?
Thank you

it's basically a - what are your weaknesses? type question except you need to apply it in the context of the program and school you are applying to.

If you are married and have kids, one way to answer it is addressing the challengo of balancing family life and MBA workload, and you could point out any of the school's features that will help you overcome the challenge (such as SO associations, etc.)

If you are a career switcher, with a Kebab chain operator background and wanting to become a currency trader, you may want to point out how you will work on imprving your skill set to become marketable in your new career...

Basically, besides the weakness discussion Toga pointed out, you can also use that essay to point out your fit, and use it as another opportunity to give love hints to the school.

Good luck !
