Essay Questions, Analysis, and Tips from Accepted.Com



Essay 1:

Please discuss your immediate post-MBA professional goals. How will your professional experience, when combined with a Kelley MBA degree, allow you to achieve these goals? Should the short-term goals you have identified not materialize, what alternate career paths might you consider? (500 words max)

This question encourages you to present your goals in the context of your experience and to integrate your MBA plans with both. With only 500 words, be selective and thoughtful about what points from your career to use to contextualize your goals. Also, the question specifies short-term goals. While it would be fine to add a sentence or a phrase about longer- term goals or overall career vision, keep your goals discussion focused on the same time frame the question focuses on: immediately post-MBA. This question is asking for linkages among your experience, your short-term goals, and your anticipated MBA experience, so think about how you will form an integrated message out of these elements.

In answering the last point, continue the linkage approach: the alternatives you identify should build on your experience in some way and be consistent with your expressed career interests. Show that you are adaptable and strategic, informed about the options, and resourceful in your thinking.


Essay 2:

Please respond to one of the following short essay prompts. (300 words max)

a. My greatest memory is...
b. I'm most afraid of...
c. My greatest challenge has been...
d. I'm most proud of...

Consider which question will give you the best avenue to both (a) round out your profile and (b) showcase an interesting and relevant aspect of your life and/or experience.

Once you decide on a topic and question, write this short essay in mini-story format. Sometimes the story itself will convey the message and/or insight, sometimes you may want to add a concluding sentence with this information. And be sensitive to the tone and presentation of the question – it really is asking for something engaging, meaningful, and lively.



Essay 3:

Please share with the admissions committee an interesting or surprising fact about you. (25 words max)

Your topic selection here should balance the topic in essay 2 and reflect another aspect of you. Also, if you choose an older story above, make this one more recent. (It’s fine to have them both be recent, but not so great to have them both be far in the past.)


Optional Essay:

Is there anything else that you think we should know as we evaluate your application? If you believe your credentials and essays represent you fairly, you shouldn't feel obligated to answer this question. (300 words max)

This question first and foremost invites you to explain anything that needs explaining (e.g., gap in employment, choice of recommender if not using a direct supervisor, etc.). As far as unnecessary points, that last phrase is a polite warning that anything extra must be pretty darn important.

Also, is there any other current student who can help?

They might be running some maintenance checks on their server. So this error. Try again after few hours.

I got a chance to meet the Adcom member during the MBA tour in Bangalore earlier this month.
Those who have already submitted their application long back can sit back and relax. They are not going to start reviewing any application until the Round-1 deadline (Oct 15th).

Hoping to see some information from them this week. Thing is they don't start reviewing the application as and when they arrive. All the applications are evaluated only after the Round deadline. So, let's give them some breathing space :D

All the best to all who applied in R1. Let the wait begin! Share your application/essay experience and tips in this thread; It will help R2 applicants or those who are applying next year.

Please do not forget to change your forum profile status to 'Application Submitted' on your MBA timeline. It will give some stats and insights for others to look into.
