I think I screwed my Chicago Booth essay (the application sent already), how bad do you think it can be?
I felt pretty solid with my presentation but after reading some more analysis, I realized I mainly didn't provide enough "why booth" reasons. the thing about a presentation the way i saw it was keeping things simple. I treated the essay more as of Stanford's "what matter most to you" and wrote general things about myself. The main reason is that I read a really bad analysis saying "anything works" just bring your beliefs etc to the essay/presentation not focusing enough on where exactly to take it. Anyway, now I wonder whether I'm doomed.
I would say apart of the essay my application is solid everywhere else. What do you think? Still got a chance?
Or thinking about it in a general point of view: how important is the essay for business school ?

there's no way to answer this question out of context - i.e. without seeing your essays.

I guess the main thing here is to learn from your mistakes. You might want to show your essays to someone and get some critique on them before you move forward.

Best,
