Essays are a chance for you to really tell your story.
Be sure you understand the questions and that you answer the question that is asked. Tell us what you really think, not what you think the admissions committee wants to hear.

I conquered those first fears and went on to become the Resident Hall Council President and Freshman Orientation Leader...
I am in the United States now in order to further my education, improve my English, and make sure that I have the skills to work effectively with business leaders from everywhere in the world...

Essays are a piece of the MBA application because we are truly interested in your answers.
A memorable essay draws authentic connections between you and the school.
That may sound obvious, but many applicants try to make an essay they wrote for another school fit the question, or they may use the question as an opportunity to say what they want to say instead of what the committee has asked. Your response should be descriptive, straightforward and sincere. Typos create a poor impression, and inserting the wrong school name in your essay creates a poor impression. Find a friend who can give your essay a second look.
Please leave your worries behind and answer the question being presented. Take time to think, then write – these are not easy questions to answer. You have probably read it a dozen times and might need a set of fresh eyes.
