For the record, ethics is a hard one and unless you have a compelling story to write, I'd stay way from ethics.

I did ethics... on second thought I wish I didn't, because even the standards of ethical behaviour vary from country to country.

That's exactly the reason I didn't do it. It is extremily difficult to write a compelling essay on ethics without sounding pathetic and phony.

thanks rhyme, I am deffinitelly staying away from ethics. I honestly have nothing to say there - my experiences have not been colorful in that regard - I guess that is a good think :?

I think I will do impact essay and quality essay. Originally I thought that quality and "what do you do best" might be easier - I could write about anything. but now that I am actually writing the assays, I wrote a 2 page outline of the things I could include in the impact essay in 30 min, and I'm still not qute sure how to structure "quality" essay though I spent the whole day yesterday brainstorming...

by the way, do you guys think that writing about an experience in undergrad is going too far back in time? In the quality essay I was thinking of backing it up with a current example from community service and an example from TA work in college.

Wharton's essay actually asks for when "values, ethics or morals" have been challenged. That opens up a lot more subject matter than just ethics.
