Essays- concern about sharing [#permalink] New post 10 Dec 2005, 10:15
Hjort,

I am currently in that part of my application where I am fine tuning my essays and once I do that I will be all done.

I have a friend who made a decision to apply to MBA programs late and I have been helping her out a lot. Currently it is with the GMAT, i review her AWA sections, give her tips and i share a lot of what I did during my preparation.

My fear is, when it comes time for her to work on essays she is going to ask to see mine or review hers. I have no problems doing that, but herein lies the problem. She is applying to some of the same schools as me and possibly in the same round.

If i do show her my essays, I think that sub-conciously it will affect what she writes in hers. This could potentially hurt me as well as her.

Is my concern legitimate or am i just being paranoid? And do you have any suggestions on how i can break it to her that I do not want to share my essays till after the application process is over. I wish she wasn't applying to the same schools as me or atleast not this year.

I agree with Canis lupus - it does not make sense to show your essays to her if you are applying to the same schools in the same year.
