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.

Dear Narenn

I think you can remove the highlighted part as those are really Kelley's essays. I think it may confuse other applicants.

The online app asks to select Major and Academies. Is these binding or can one choose differently when the program starts?

Hi ZenYogi

No it is not binding. You can change. But I want draw your attention ( as an advice) that it should align with Kelley's 1 essay which asks for your short term goal and alternative plan.

Does Kelley require physical transcripts to be sent for the application or are scanned uploads sufficient?

As my current friend in Kelley said, It pretty straightforward (goals, why kelley's mba, conflict, failure in your life..etc) with last question a curve ball. I hope I was not late for you.

At the end of the interview, you may ask 1-2 questions, make them clever.

good luck

Okay, In for R1. Submitted the application.

I love to see applications that they are either free or for just $75 when all others are more than $200. :-D

Good luck everyone.

Haha. Yeah, I hope most of us become classmates very soon. ;)

I also received the same email the moment I paid the fee. Looks like they will send results directly now.

Good luck mate. :)
