ESSAY QUESTIONS



Only one essay is required. There also is an optional essay if there is additional information you wish to share with the admissions committee about your candidacy.

REQUIRED ESSAY (Maximum 300 words, 12-point font, double-spaced)
Imagine that you meet up with a member of the admission committee at an airport while on a layover. You have an opportunity to make a memorable impression. Use this essay to introduce yourself. Include any information that you believe is important for the committee member to know about you both professionally and personally.

OPTIONAL ESSAY
  • Use this essay to convey important information that you may not have been otherwise able to convey. This may include unexplained resume gaps, context for recommender selection, etc.
  • If you are a re-applicant, explain how your candidacy has strengthened since your last application.


RECOMMENDATION QUESTIONS
Your recommender will be asked to respond based on his/her experience working with you:

1. If you were to coach this candidate with respect to how s/he works within a team, what would you advise that s/he does well? What would you advise the candidate to do differently? Provide specific examples that support your advice.

2. If you were to coach this candidate on his/her professional development, in what areas would you suggest s/he focus? What are the areas of strength on which s/he can build? Provide specific examples that support your advice.

I'm confused about the essay too. I asked the adcom in what format are they expecting the essay to be in, and they replied saying it does not matter. But still, I'm confused. should it sound conversational or like an elevator pitch? help!

Hi,

In the application, we have two questions which require us to address the short-term goals and alternate role(PlanB). The word limit mentioned is 150 words. Does anyone know whether it is a combined word limit for both the questions or for the individual question?

I asked about this. Rule of thumb is to not use the optional essay until there's a huge visible gap in your application..like employment gaps

Hi Varun,

No updates as yet. I submitted the application on weekend, so it is yet to be progressed and I believe that will start today.

Still my application is waiting for official receipt of gmat score, my recommendation and adcom to conduct a final review of all of the docs.

I will keep you posted of any updates.

Thanks,
NS

Submitted mine over the weekend too. Does anyone know their typical time period before interview calls? I hear some schools call in a week or so.

Good luck to all!

Thanks NS! I'm a reapplicant - was in the waitlist till about May-June. I think that helped.

You have the flexibility to choose the dates - but it's on a first come, first serve basis.

Invited to interview (Skype). I believe there are no face-to-face interviews for international applicants?
