Per an email sent out this morning:

Essay prompt: Describe the biggest commitment you have ever made. (500 words)

This will be our second year using this prompt, which we developed in collaboration with Amy Wrzesniewski, a professor of organizational behavior here at SOM and one of the lead faculty in the core leadership courses within our integrated curriculum. In asking this question, the Admissions Committee is interested not just in the commitment itself but also in how you approach the commitment and the behaviors that support it.

I think this is a great question! It reminds me a bit of the "what matters most"
question at GSB but this is more results oriented. The commitment should have some meat behind it- in other words- there should be some results from the commitment you have made. That means it can't be a new commitment- it should be something where you have a track record. It sounds like it could be personal or professional and just that it should be something where you can discuss the impact and also what you have learned. It would be great to tie into your post MBA goal- as in this MBA is part of your commitment to this goal that you have been committed to and let Yale know how the MBA will help you be even more effective or one step closer to being able to fulfill this commitment that you care so much about. Maybe you need to learn how to scale the startup that educates kids from higher risk backgrounds and then you tie into how the MBA and the Yale environment also help you do that. In any case- great that it is out now so you can work on this! Stratus has some great bench strength in helping candidates prepare for top MBA programs and we welcome the opportunity to do a free consult with you to learn how we can help you be successful in Yale applications or in other top programs.
