Dear Sir/Mam,

I am in the process of applying for Said MBA 2018-2019 batch.
While going through the essay topics I was very confused as to how to approach the first essay.
Request you to provide valuable insights on the below essay topic

'Consider a statistic or trend that shocks you. Why it is important to you and how could it be changed for the better?'

Hi Kate,
Thank you so much for the prompt reply.
Can the trend be a social problem that is prevalent in the society ? .
Something I am facing directly in my family or in and around my area?

Yes, either of those options would work. The why part of the question is important; you must explain why it's a problem or trend that's meaningful to you.
