So I lived in Hong Kong and Shanghai, attending British and American schools.

I returned back to Korea in junior high and high school, and experienced vastly different educational environments at home (a kind of reverse culture shock)

I wrote on how I felt about certain kinds of bullying, the teacher centered educational system, and the history that were evident in the school system and teaching styles, and so forth(like Japanese colonial influences).

In the end I wrote how I was able to see my experiences as broadening rather than traumatic by studying philosophy in college.1) Then I finished off with how this relates to my desire to study back in the US (I went to college in the US) where I can truly experience diversity of ethnicity and, more importantly, thoughts. Not to mention I have a lot to gain from Kellogg's other course offerings and its strength in management consulting.



Is this an appropriate topic for an MBA application essay?

1)To be frank looking back my sensitivity also had to do with certain traumas that I experienced at youth, but I didn't mention anything like that in my essay.

I teach law in Shanghai and wrote about adapting to the educational philosophy, so I understand the teacher centered education. I think your topic could be okay, if you showed leadership development and skills. If you just showed growth without focusing on leadership you may have missed an opportunity but you can make it up elsewhere.
