Monday Morning Essay Tip: Be Cautious with Polarizing Issues [#permalink]
 FROM mbaMission Blog: Monday Morning Essay Tip: Be Cautious with Polarizing Issues Although many MBA programs are interested in hearing about your international experiences, they are fundamentally uninterested in your personal views on “hot” global political issues. Even when an admissions committee directly challenges you to discuss current events or global politics, you must take care to offer a point of view—not a scathing manifesto.No clear rules exist as to what exactly you should discuss, but as you consider ideas, “knowing your audience” is of the utmost importance. Never take risks by discussing an economic, political, social, or cultural idea that you believe could generally be considered extreme. Of course, “extreme” is open to interpretation, and this is why choosing the issue you will discuss requires so much careful consideration. When you begin writing, keep in mind that you are not trying to win voters or recruit people to your cause—your goal is simply to show that you are engaged in the issues, can consider them in a balanced way, and are able to articulate your ideas persuasively.The post Monday Morning Essay Tip: Be Cautious with Polarizing Issues appeared first on mbaMission - MBA Admissions Consulting.

Monday Morning Essay Tip: Support Conclusions with Examples [#permalink]
 FROM mbaMission Blog: Monday Morning Essay Tip: Support Conclusions with Examples At mbaMission, we always encourage candidates to show their experiences rather than tell their conclusions to the reader. For example, a candidate may mistakenly choose to tell the reader, “I performed exceptionally well in my job and was promoted.” In this case, the reader is left wondering, “What exactly did he/she do so well to earn that promotion?” The reader needs to understand the whole story for the conclusion to be “proven.”We find that candidates occasionally think they are providing the whole story when they are in fact offering only a single data point:Example 1: “For me, as an avid paraglider, extreme sports are not just a hobby but a way of life.”In this case, the conclusion—that the candidate “lives” for extreme sports—is not substantiated. One data point is not enough to “prove” this conclusion.Example 2: “For me, as an avid paraglider and budding heli-skier, extreme sports are not just a hobby but a way of life.”With the addition of the mention of a second activity, the applicant’s case becomes more compelling.Example 3: “For me, as an avid paraglider, budding heli-skier, and experienced cliff diver, extreme sports are not just a hobby but a way of life.”This series of three examples makes the candidate’s passion for extreme sports undeniable.Of course, we have used a simplified example here and would suggest that a candidate put his/her experience into action and show the passion via experience—“Leaping from a ten-meter cliff, I…”—depending on the context of the essay.The post Monday Morning Essay Tip: Support Conclusions with Examples appeared first on mbaMission - MBA Admissions Consulting.
