Essay 5 Tips

A. What monument or site would you advise a first-time visitor to your country or city to discover, and why?

The WHY part of the question will reveal how you think, what you value and hold important. You can pick almost any monument! It will your reasons for why you chose it, that will make or break the answer.

B. Certain books, movies or plays have had an international success that you believe to be undeserved. Choose an example and analyze it.

Another quirky question!

An deserved success in your opinion would mean that the particular piece of art was low on its merit. So that begs to know- what do you consider good art? And what was poor/bad/wrong about this example?

If possible pick a recent and well-known example, that way you can avoid the risk of adcom not knowing about it.

C. What figure do you most admire and why? You may choose from any field (arts, literature, politics, business, etc).

Quite like the essay A, more than who you talk about- the WHY part of the question will truly reveal your personality and character.

You only have 250 words, so keep most of the word counts about yourself. Even while describing and writing about admiring someone else, the focus should be on YOU.

Optional Essay

Is there any additional information you would like to share with us? (900 words)

Optional Essay Tips

First decide whether you need to write this essay at all.

Attempt this essay only if you feel that it will improve the factual and material strength of your application. Do not submit a optional essay as an addendum to any of your essays. Do not submit your optional essay because you feel that the quality of your earlier essays is improvable – in that case simply redouble your efforts in those essays and leave the optional essay alone.

You could use this space to explain shortfalls in your application which you feel are truly detrimental to your candidature. Areas of underperformance (academic or professional or GMAT) or events which stick out such as gaps in your resumes or a previous MBA or academic disciplinary actions are possible reasons why you attempt this optional essay. Comment on your shortcomings with intelligence, perspective and credibility: giving vague excuses or blaming xyz for failures will be totally counter-productive. Explain the issue clearly and maintain greater focus on the correction for the issue. For example, if you had a disciplinary issue in college, spend most of the space demonstrating what you learned from the experience and how you have been a better person/ student/ citizen ever since.

OR, you could use this this essay to highlight exceptional aspects of your candidature that could not be accommodated in the previous two essays. Since this essay does not have to be limited to a single theme or event, disparate yet impressive info points can be quoted.

If you are certain that this new essay is a robust constructive addition to your candidacy, start working on it!
