Harvard essay: undergraduate or graduate experience? [#permalink] New post 10 Oct 2005, 15:50
The first essay on Harvard's application asks for "What would you like the MBA Admissions Board to know about your undergraduate academic experience?".

I finished undergraduate school in 1998, went to graduate school in 2000 and finished graduate school in 2002. Would it be OK to write about my grad-school experience when the essay prompt specifically mentions undergraduate experience.

The intent of the essay is obviously to understand the all-round performance during one's academic life. So, in spirit, I think I will be OK. What are your opinions?

One of admissions board's major complaints about applicants is that they don't answer the questions posed. Given that, I'd play it safe and focus on my undergrad experience.

If there are things regarding your graduate experience that you think are vital to your application messaging, then use essay #7.
