Lambastedddd!!!

My first reviewer shared his thoughts on my essays and i must admit that the comments were an "eye-opener".

To do:
1. Individual essays are not fitting into the bigger picture - According to my reviewer, my essays are fine content wise but all the essays taken together do not create a comprehensive/clear picture of me. I need to work on Essay-1 {career goal/why mba} and Essay -4{best mistake ever made} ...Essay 1 is going to drive the central theme and essay 4 will support it...
2. Few gramatical mistakes -- need to correct them

Good thing -- Essay 3 {how do i see my student evaluator evaluating my app} -- i got some really great comments or shall i say compliments on this one..so more or less essay3 is freezed ..

Essay - 2 {leadership} is also coming out fine but i need to link the individual paragraphs effectively. Also, the leadership traits demonstrated should come out clearly... need to fine tune this essay...

I have been blogging about taking the bigger picture into consideration but i failed to do so. I think we get attached to our ideas and fail to see the gap...highly recommended that you get your essays reviewed by some trust-worthy people...to find out whether your story is making sense and whether your story is coming out nicely....

On a side note...i have started researching Fuqua...and with each passing day i am falling in love with the school...{am already in love with Fuqua but the bond is getting stronger...}..will soon start working on Fuqua app...Plan to wrap up all my apps by Sep-15 as i have to attend many marriages starting sep-19....

That is an assuarance for great essays ahead. Even I was ripped apart by my reviewer for my fuqua essays... But now the essay looks pretty good..

All the best!!!

Great to know that. I have also started working on my essays but before writing a draft for any one of them, and trying to figure out all the points am going to put in these essays and trying to see if am covering all the aspects and how the overall picture is coming up. I think using this I might be in a better position later... what you suggest?

@Gogo and Rahul -- i hope so :)

@A -- you are right...i also did that but while working on individual essays forgot to keep the bigger picture in mind...it's an iterative process..
