Haas application can be tiring if you don't plan it well. There could be 6 total essays. On the same note I was wondering what are people's thought about essay 5. Are you planning to reply both questions as one essays or separate?

I was wondering how is everyone approaching the first essay question "If you could choose one song that expresses who you are, what is it and why? "

I asked few friends to give me one or two songs which remind them of me. So far some interesting choices emerged. Any thoughts or ideas from anyone on the forum?

I have to admit I was totally dreading this question because I am not really that musically-inclined. But I ended up choosing a song that I really enjoy that reminded me of an important time in my life. It was a good jumping off point to talk about a life experience and my personal qualities. I think the point is to have fun with it. So go with what feels good! :)

Thanks Machichi for some help there. I read your blog, interesting read indeed. :) I am also 2-3 days a week soccer player.
I am originally from India so every song buzzing in my mind is generally a Bollywood number or some old Pink Floyd song so that doesn't help much.
I will have to figure this one out soon. Although I have drafts of three other essays ready so I am not as stressed as I was last year. :)

I see you're a blogger yourself! You haven't posted in a bit--are you retaking the GMAT again?

I don't see anything wrong with a Pink Floyd or a Bollywood song. I mean, I guess the Bollywood might remind the adcom too acutely that you're an Indian applicant, but if it conjures up real, authentic, and interesting memories of your life, I don't see any problem with that. And well, Pink Floyd is a classic! :)

I thought about referencing one of my favorite songs, River by Joni Mitchell and how it was totally ruined for me when I heard it playing at a sex shop in Chicago. Haha, then I decided that fell into the category of "TMI" (too much information).


Hahaha the "River" incident is funny indeed. I think I am very close to finding the right song. I asked couple of friends a theme is emerging.
About the blog yes, I haven't typed anything for a while. I had couple of good articles I wanted to post but haven't gotten around that yet.

About the GMAT, my confidence was shattered after the miserable score of 610. My prac test scores were pretty solid. Last 4 test in 730+ on Gmat prep.

After that I scored 610. So I am still recovering. I have a previous score of 650. I might as well go with that. We will see. I will keep you posted.

Thanks!

I am not quite sure. I checked last year's thread and couldn't find anything related to it. Although I checked only 5 pages. If you have patience and courage you can go through that or just email the adcom. Sorry I couldn't help you much.

Haha, it is a tricky one. True story (as Barney would say) : I was listening to radio in my car and "Rocket Man" started playing. I told myself this would be a perfect song for the Haas essay because me being an Aerospace engg and all. I looked up the lyrics, not related at all. In fact I don't even have a wife. I also looked in to the "the Joker" by Steve Miller because it starts with "Some people call me space cowboy" but same problem. I think I might have to settle down with a Pink Floyd or Bob Dylan since you can interpret it however you like to. Especially tumbleweed and all in Bob Dylan's song. :)

I am secretly hoping they'll play the songs while reading the essay. Think how cheerful and happy the adcom would be. They'll just accept all of us!

I also think they should be required to answer this question for themselves in their explanation. It would be fun to get to know them that way. At least we know that if we end up at Haas we'll have a good icebreaker question!
