Essay 1: Please make a strong case to differentiate yourself from an exceptional set of applicants applying for PGP 2013-14. You could cite personal/professional achievements to present your case. (300 words max)

You may choose one accomplishment from your professional life and one from your personal life to present your well- rounded personality.
Please do not begin your story with. "My greatest accomplishment is" or "one thing I did well was... "Let your story/ experience speak for you.
The ‘how’ part of your accomplishment is as important as the ‘what’ part. So, never tell the whole story in the first sentence itself. It is like telling the climax of the story in the first sentence itself.

Make sure your accomplishment story has the following four components:

 the challenge,
 the achievement,
 the outcome/result,
 the significance.

Do not forget to explain why this accomplishment is meaningful to you both in terms of the challenges you overcame, the results you produced, and the lessons you learned. In the following example, the applicant wraps up his story by outlining its significance for him.

Example:

“Today I recall XXX as one of the most memorable projects. From revenue perspective it was not the biggest project I handled, nor was it the most complex project. However, it was the most challenging project: in terms of saving my company and my own reputation in front of the mounting unforeseen challenges.”

Lastly, and most importantly, be as precise as you can in presenting your stories. With 300 words maximum words allowed, you only have approximately 150 words each for detailing two of your most significant accomplishments
