Essay Questions



Essay 1. (Required)
Please describe your short and long term goals post-MBA. Explain how your professional experience has shaped these goals, why this career option appeals to you, and how you arrived at the decision that now is the time and the MBA is the appropriate degree. (500 words maximum)

Essay 2. (Optional)
What personal qualities or life experiences distinguish you from other applicants? How do these qualities or experiences equip you to contribute to UNC Kenan-Flagler? (300 words maximum)

Essay 3. (Optional)
If your standardized test scores are low, or if you have not had coursework in core business subjects (calculus, microeconomics, statistics, financial accounting), please tell us how you plan to prepare yourself for the quantitative rigor of the MBA curriculum. (300 words maximum)

Essay 4. (Optional)
Is there any other information you would like to share that is not presented elsewhere in the application? (300 words maximum)


Essay Analysis and Tips from ACCEPTED



Essay 1.
What do you see yourself doing immediately upon graduation and what would you like to do ten years from now? Describe why this path attracts you. What experiences have convinced you to pursue it? Why do you need an MBA, especially one with UNC’s approach to business education, to proceed down your chosen path. For more tips on writing about post-MBA goals, please see MBA Goals 101.


Essay 2.
Everyone has a story. What’s yours? What makes you tick? What would you like the admissions committee to know about you — you the human being, the individual? What hobbies and experiences will differentiate you from the IT guy, consultant, real estate developer, or banker that the adcom just read about? How will your perspective contribute to the classroom and community at Kenan-Flagler?

Essay 3.
This is pretty straightforward. Just answer it. You may also want to highlight professional preparation that you have already had in quantitative areas.
Kenan Flagler explicitly says that it's important for its students to have a "working knowledge" of financial accounting, statistics, microeconomics, and calculus. If you don't have it, get it.

Essay 4.
My favorite: The optional essay. A gift allowing you to give the adcom one more reason to admit you.

I'm an international student trying to decide if visiting UNC during the open interview period (and scheduling an interview) would add a lot more value than just visiting the school after the open interview period is over but prior to submitting my application. Any thoughts?

If you're going to visit regardless I would highly suggest doing it during open interview. As long as you're prepared an interview is an excellent opportunity to showcase yourself to the school, especially if there may be some gaps in your profile that could possibly keep them from inviting you to an interview which you can account for in person.

Maybe some of you have encountered the same difficulties with this question on the recommendation form:

Please use the space below to elaborate on the candidate's qualifications

I asked the admissions office for clarification and here is there reply:
The section that invites your recommender to elaborate is just another opportunity to give specific examples that may not have fit into the other categories. It does not have to be completed.

Hope this is useful, good luck everyone.

Hi,

I was in your place last year. I traveled to attend interview and visit the school. It was great opportunity to show to the adcom how you want KF. More Importantly, I saw the school and the Chapel hill. I attended one strategy class. I encourage you to do so.

Hi,
I have applied to the Kenan-Flager MBA program and have been invited for an interview. While selecting date and time for the appointment date, I noticed that no time zone was mentioned. Should I use their local time zone and move ahead? I have not received a reply from Ad com for the same. Any suggestions?
