Essays- concern about sharing [#permalink]
10 Dec 2005, 10:15
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.
if i were you i wouldnt show my essays to someone who was applying to the same college..even she doesnt pick up the entire essays she just might pick up a few unique pointers that would ruin chances for the both of you'll
