hi there,
quick question: do you think it matters if i answer an essay question out of order?

for example, if the question reads "please tell us why you want your MBA, describe your career goals, and why do you want to come to our school?"
...... is it in poor taste if i address the question by first telling why i want my MBA, why i want to attend their school, and then concluding w/ my career goals?

this is just an example, but you get the idea. do i have to follow the order in which the question is asked? or does it not matter, as long as i ANSWER all of the question????

thanks!

Make sure you answer all elements of the question in the most effective order for you and your essay. You don't have to do it in the order provided by the question.

Good luck!
