Both are right. If you would see once more, you would find that 2nd and 3rd questions are optional. I just added to previously existing information. There are 3 essays in total, out of which 1st is compulsory.

Nice to meet you.

Looking at your profile, I assume you will also apply to Mason this year, is that right?

It seems that our topic is a little quiet.

Is Anyone crafting their essays now?

Any thoughts on how to tackle this optional essay:

The William & Mary School of Business culture is one of collaboration, leadership engagement, and service; how do you see yourself contributing to our unique learning community beyond the classroom?

I have just submitted my application today. Has anyone been up to their interview?

By the way, the optional essay is a tough one. Took me 2 weeks for brainstorming. My suggestion is you should get to know about the school first via readings on their website. That was how I got some ideas for this essay.

I received an interview invitation from Mason more than 1 week ago. They set it up on 15/11. Now I am reading old threads to gain some experience for this interview. Maybe you can try to write something in the early morning. It works for me.

Hey
Please keep us posted too if you find anything useful in the old threads, hope I am not asking too much. I will be grateful for the help.
Also please post your interview debrief on the section once done with it.
All the best man...Rock it.

Sorry for my late reply. A bit busy with tasks at work. Amanda was my interviewer. The interview was very comfortable with conventional questions like: talk about your education, current work. I suggest you should know your resume well. We also talk about Vietnamese culture since Amanda has been to my country twice. Just that. Very easy. You shoud prepare well and then enjoy it good luck every one. Btw, Amanda said the result would be sent out before X-mas.
