Hi folks

I wanted to check what time frame you guys think are appropriate to draw from for your essays.

For eg. MIT say that all experiences should be drawn from your last 2 years. Do you know if other schools have this restriction or is this something that is like an unwritten law...

More specifically Im thinking of Wharton essay #2 about failure and cant think of anything good that recent...is it ok to go back 4-5 years to talk about experience from a failure if it has had a significant impact...

Thanks for your help.

Wierd...never seen this in any of my apps.

I think you can go back as far as you want as long as you tie it back to something recent.

For example, I use a time in 1998 when I hiked in the swiss alps, but I tie it back to a lesson I used in 2005....
