Required Essays

Essay #1
Tell us a six-word story that reflects a memorable experience in your life-to-date. Elaborate on why it is meaningful to you. (250 words maximum)

Tip: A successful six-word story will pique the reader’s interest in the forthcoming explanation.

Respond to one of the following prompts: (250 words maximum)

Describe a significant obstacle you have encountered and how it has impacted you.
Describe how you have cultivated a diverse and inclusive culture.
Describe a leadership experience and how you made a positive and lasting impact.

Tip: Responses can draw from professional or personal experiences. Through your response, the admissions committee hopes to gain insight into your achievements, involvement, and leadership footprint.

Essay #3
Briefly describe your immediate post-MBA career goals. (50 words maximum)
How have prior experiences motivated and prepared you to pursue these goals? (250 words maximum)

Tip: You are encouraged to reflect on both what you want to do professionally after business school and why this path interests you.

Although she is not the most bashful person, I am obliged to add Prawn and congratulate her for scoring the Dean's fellowship today. Woo - hoo.

For those of you who don't know her, she was WL by Haas in R1, but fought her way through a full ride. This is my way of making sure she sticks around to help everyone this year.

:oops: Haha! Thanks Souvik. It has definitely been an insane ride but absolutely worth pushing through. :)
All the best, future Haasies! Try not to focus on the acceptance rate and other statistics. Remember, you need just ONE seat.

Nonetheless, hope to get accepted and enjoy the ride beginning next year!
Best of luck to eveyone!!

I everyone I am applying Round 1 this year. I had already started working on the essays...just brainstorming and stuff using last years' questions hoping they wouldn't change. I really was looking forward to writing the essay about the song that describes you so I am so bummed to see they have changed it...and this six word story is going to be a tough one!

250 words is the additional info. Did you guys check out the sample stories? I found them useful. I do think though that the song essay was somewhat similar to this so I may take some inspiration for last year.

Bummer on the goals essay though :(

Lol sample stories don't make sense at all. I guess just use song essay and pick the best line of song as your six word story.
