The questions are divided into three parts:

Part I: Career Choice Essay (300 word maximum)
How would you characterize your career since college?
This is not your job description or complete history of your work since graduating (we already ask for that in the online portion and can see this on your resume). You need to choose the most important elements that show your initiative, contribution, leadership and results achieved.

Part II: Career Goal Essay (400 word maximum)
Tell us about your short and long term career goals.
Please show you have a clear direction for your goal post-MBA. Good essays will emphasize what an applicant wants to do while at Johnson and how you will use this experience to accomplish your goal.

Part III: Character Essay (400 word maximum for chosen question), please choose one of the following to write about:
a. You are the author for the book of Your Life Story. Please write the table of contents for the book. Note: Approach this essay with your unique style. We value creativity and authenticity.

b. Describe a situation taken from your personal or professional life where you failed and tell us what you learned.

c. What does diversity mean to you and how will you contribute to the diversity of our community at Johnson?
