Requesting opinions on essay why school xyz [#permalink] New post 27 Nov 2010, 11:42
I been trying really hard to answer the question

How will school XYZ help you achieve your goals OR Why School XYZ.

I tried mentioning points such as
the experienced/richness faculty names in the subjects that interest me
the clubs that interest me
*Will mentioning curriculum help?*

BUT my consultant is saying these points are useless and I need to really find out and write Why School XYZ over school ABC, when the points i.e. faculty, teaching are common among schools.

I mean how the heck will I know other than things that I can read online or few alumnus that i talk to?

Please if you have any opinions, I would be grateful.

Thank you.

The consultant Precision Essays, says I need to find out on my own. I been dealing like this for many weeks and I imagine its the same with all Consultants.

If anyone have any idea about the points I could mention which are not too generic, then let me know.

haha, you need to find out on your own?
Thats terrible. As far as why you fit in? thats fair but they should at least get you going.
For example if you wanted to do SME PE and XYZ has a professor who started McKinsey's SME Decision Maker, then thats getting more specific to you and your needs.
All schools have a personality, its on you to find out what it is and match that. I'm not sure where you are applying but think about it in relation to HBS, you cant deny that there is a type they like right?

Its the same for every school just not as well documented.

With no info about you or the school its going to be hard to get an answer. IMO the more personal you are and specific about how the school can help the better. We all write about classes and faculty. Dont just write about a class you like, tell them how it will get you from point A to B. Bonus points if you make it a class that isnt taught anywhere else.

You exactly on the money and after some enquiries with alumni, they suggested exactly what you did that we need to explain how the school will be able to help us, and thereby the appeal.
I get your point.
