Any thoughts on these essay questions posted for Fall 2016? Does anyone know if Haas uses the same essay questions for the normal application as they do for Consortium applications? Copied and pasted from their website:

Listed below are the required essays, supplemental essays, and optional essays for fall 2016.

At Berkeley-Haas, we seek candidates from a broad range of cultures, backgrounds, and industries who demonstrate a strong cultural fit with our program and defining principles. Our distinctive culture is defined by four key principles — Question the Status Quo, Confidence Without Attitude, Students Always, and Beyond Yourself. Please use the following essays as an opportunity to reflect on and share with us the values, experiences, and accomplishments that have helped shape who you are. (Learn more about Berkeley-Haas' Defining Principles)

2. Please respond to one of the following prompts: (250 word maximum)

So... is the adcom going to sit around listening to everyone's songs while reading essays? Can they please make this a Spotify playlist?
