Still stuck? Here are some good brainstorming sites ▸

Too often, clients send me failure essays that I do not believe or care about. Do not play it safe!

We look forward to reading your essay.

By acting on a decision, you're also taking responsibility for the setback. Once you assume responsibility for your actions, you're ready to move forward and attain your next goal.

Is it correct to write in the essay BP1- one view, BP2 -another one?

For example, with this essay, I started to write about students would also learn about their own body, how its functions, that foods to avoid, etc, which would prevent them from eating the wrong kind of food. -> would that be off topic? I wasn’t sure if “physical education” only refers to doing physical activities.

Hi Liz,
Is it good to write both side of the question for , To what extend do yo agree or disagree , type question. It is so confusing as many teachers giving different answers. I thought if I agree I only need to write why I agree, also the same for disagree. If I partially agree I can write why I am partially agreeing(one paragraph each)but I seen model answers like why others say it is the other way for the opposite side . Is it ok to write like that.( if I am agreeing can I write a paragraph why others disagree)

Your long term goal can be general, but should still express your visions and insights about the industry you would like to work in, perhaps in 10 years.

See this page to learn when to give your opinion:

Outline your long term goal. This is your mission in life. Try to show that you are confident to achieve these goals with or without business school (though earning your MBA from their school certainly increases the scale and scope of your future success)

You can add a statistic if you want but it won’t boost your score.Liz

If your goal is simply to continue what you are doing now, that is too realistic. It is a waste of an MBA. If your goal, however, is to do something radically different from what you are doing now, and there is not a clear sense of how you are going to get there, that is too ambitious. Many of my clients use MBA to change careers. Others want to lead their current industry.

You can talk about any book you want.Liz

The cornerstone to this essay is your “Short-Term Goal” because it guides what information you should include in your “Career Review” and highlights what you still lack to achieve your goals. Having a detailed short-term goal is also crucial to explain how this school best prepares you to achieve your goals.

Most goals fit into one or more of these three categories

If it says “discuss both sides and give your opinion” then you discuss both sides and you give your opinion. That’s very clear. If the instructions say “to what extent do you agree or disagree” – it wants to know what you think and only what you think. Agree or disagree – which one? Or do you have a specific opinion? One is a discussion with an opinion and the other is only about your opinion.
All the best

Go into consumer goods / marketing

I just want to clarify if my understanding about the question is correct. Isn’t it if the question is asking about to what extent do I agree or disagree means I have to discuss both sides and take one side on the last paragraph?
