Hi Experts,

Can you please explain me an essay question:

Your biography is being made into a movie. What are the top five most meaningful scenes, and what song must be in the soundtrack? Why?

Do we have to have to divide an achievement story into five scenes and present it?
Do we need to write five different scenes from same life experience or five scenes from five different stories? If we write five different stories how to connect them with a common song?

Hi there - thank you for writing. What an interesting question! My suggestion for approaching this: brainstorming on what have been your most meaningful personal and professional achievements/moments (a good blend of both - those you felt truly shaped you or represented "turning points" in your life) and highlight the top 5. Regarding the song - it would help if you identified a common theme that threads the experiences or that you feel embodies your personality. Examples may include: overcoming adversity, achieving your dreams, showing optimism, etc. Then, pick a song you're familiar with that reflects that through its lyrics / melody.

I hope that helps! Let me know of any other questions

Hello Experts,

I have a doubt regarding below Application essay, are we supposed to add scenes from our life experiences before MBA?. Will the biography be limited to my Pre-MBA experiences?. Please advise.

Your biography is being made into a movie. What are the top five most meaningful scenes, and what song must be in the soundtrack? Why?

Thank you
