I'm in for R1. I wonder what caused them to dump the rolling admissions policy. Granted, from the 2011 thread, It sounds like they more or less dumped it last year.

Happy to know I'll have at least one response for Christmas, Ideally a positive one!

Hey all,

How are you guys thinking about the second essay - the strengths analysis one? What do you think would be the best strategy here? Identify 2-3 strengths but only illustrate how you used that strength at work and a non-work setting, or identify 2-3 and illustrate how you used one strength at work and another at a non-work environment, or just identify 1 strength and illustrate how you used that at work and at a non-work setting?

Am I thinking about this essay in a convoluted way?!?!

Appreciate your thoughts!

I hate to be vague or unhelpful, but it's really up to you. You should write it in whatever way you feel best plays to your strengths that you can back up with specific examples. In my opinion the setting of your examples doesn't matter so much as the strength of them, as long as you use at least one of each.

Alright I'm going to stop helping the competition now. :-D

What do you guys think about the 2 required / 2 optional essays? Seems like a pretty strange format to me. In my other apps, I don't plan on utilizing the lone Optional Essay because I don't really have extenuating circumstances to address. However, in McCombs I almost feel obligated to do one of the optionals since there are two.

Thoughts?
