Essay Writing Course

 

Essays are opportunities to portray your personality and distinctive qualities to the Admissions Committee. Unlike application forms that require objective information about your academic performance and work experience, essays convey information not provided elsewhere in the application. They are a means of self-disclosure where the applicants express their understanding of their intent, abilities, values and skills. Essays enable the person reading your application to know you beyond your GPA and GMAT scores. They convey your professional skills and also your personal background. Successful applicants focus almost equally on their personal and professional experiences.
