Ross Michigan 2015-2016 essay see the return of the career goal essay. Last year Ross took a bold step of completely eliminating the goal essay. However, it seems they missed knowing the details about anticipated career path and how it helps them assemble a diverse class.

Essay 1.
What are you most proud of and why? How does it shape who you are today? (400 words)

Ross very clearly wants to get to know the person behind those awesome numbers they see in your GMAT, GPA and Resume. They want to know what drives you, what motivates you as a person, what are your values and what makes you, YOU.

You can talk about one significant achievement outside of work, OR take a thematic approach. If you are selecting one event- then make sure to pick something that has had far reaching impact on you.

On the other hand, a personal story could be about getting involved with community service, leading an initiative you, mentoring someone in your family, deciding to live your life a certain way, taking a less-popular stance on a controversial topic.. and many more such options. More than what you talk about, it is critical that you show WHY it was so important for you and how it has influenced you in a significant way.

Your goal here is to highlight the strengths that will make you a good candidate for Ross MBA.

Essay 2.
What is your desired career path and why? (400 words)

A standard career goal essay that expects to know what you want to do in your career after MBA. The fairly open ended question gives you flexibility to build your narrative but be sure to include your short-term and long-term career plans and an explanation of why Ross MBA is critical for you to reach your goals. If you can include a vision about your career, that will make for a powerful and memorable essay.
