Some fun

September 11, 2008

Ok time for some serious fun.

Don’t you think all the schools would be better off in knowing us and how our minds work if the essays were twisted a bit, like this –

Wharton Essay 1: Describe your boss’ career progress to date and his future short-term and long-term career goals. Do you think you can do a better job? 

Wharton Essay 2:Describe a failure or setback that you have experienced. What role did others play in ensuring that you failed?

Wharton Essay 3: Where in your background would we find evidence of your leadership capacity and/or potential? You are free to go back in time but limit it to upto the previous three lives only.

Ross Essay 2: Describe your most significant professional accomplishment, if any. Else elaborate on the leadership skills you wish you had but could never have, the actions you thought of but could never implement, and the impact these had on your mental organization.

Ross Essay 3: If you were not pursuing the career goals you described in Question 1, what things in life would you pursue instead? (for example, poledancing,skydiving,ragpicking,sleeping,etc.) How will this alternate interest contribute to your effectiveness in creating multi-disciplinary problems?

Tuck Essay 3: Discuss the most difficult constructive criticism or feedback you have received. Who the …. dared to give it to you? What lessons did you teach him?

Optional essay – Briefly discuss the puff quotient of your resume. Reduce it by 90%. Evaluate the differences before and after this exercise. Describe why your background,values,activities, and life experiences have nothing worthwhile to contribute to our MBA programme ?


Happy Essaying 🙂

    Maverick – like I said to another applicant, we are all dimwits who feel otherwise 🙂

    Travelusions & Matt – it can really get tough, and get to you.Retaining the sense of humour is important for me.
