2- My essay topic is about resilience and the challenges I've had to overcome to obtain the experiences I have, is it an interesting topic?

Thanks for sharing your profile:

THESE ARE SOME OF THE BEST SCHOOLS IN THE WORLDS SO IT WILL NOT BE EASY FOR ANYONE, ESPECIALLY IN THEIR VERY SELECTIVE DEFERRED PROGRAM. I THINK YOU WILL NEED A STRONG GMAT TO BREAK THROUGH BUT YOUR PROFILE RIGHT NOW IS SOLID, JUST NOTHING EXCEPTIONAL
1- How relevant would my GMAT score be? If I obtain 690 will it hurt my chances by a lot?
THE AVERAGE GMAT SCORES FOR THESE SCHOOLS ARE WELL ABOVE 690 SO THE ANSWER IS YES, THE CLOSER YOU ARE TO THE AVERAGE SCORE THE BETTER YOUR CHANCES ARE
2- My essay topic is about resilience and the challenges I've had to overcome to obtain the experiences I have, is it an interesting topic?
ON THE SURFACE YES, YOU WON'T BE THE ONLY WITH A STORY LIKE THIS SO JUS TMAKE SURE YOUR WRITING IS STRONG, YOUR STORY IS INSIGHTFUL AND RELEVANT AND IT HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BE A STRONG ESSAY
