Essays for multiple questions [#permalink] New post 02 Dec 2005, 20:05
Hello Hjort,

General question-

If you have to address multiple questions in a single essay is it necessary to answer the questions within the essay in the same order that it was asked? (here is an example: What are your short-term and long-term career goals? How do your professional experiences relate to these goals? Why do you want an MBA from Berkeley at this point in your career? )

I was even thinking of weaving a story and combining all three answers into one story but that seems to be extremely difficult and risky. But if i could answer the questions in reverse order, I think my essay will be much better.

Thanks in advance.

1) Is it necessary to follow the order? No, I've seen successful essays that deviate from the order.

2) Is it generally a good idea to follow the order of presentation? Yes, most applicants seem to answer the questions in order and reading essays in a different order can be distracting. I have found it better just to follow the given order unless a different order results in a significantly better essay. However, if you change the order it must be absolutely clear which question you are answering in each portion of your essay.
