Need help on application Essay writing

Post Mon Aug 29, 2016 2:09 am
Hi,

I appeared for the GMAT exam last Thursday (25th Aug'16) and got a score of 740 (Q 50, V40, IR 7). I am planning to take Toefl on 3rd Sept'16.

As a next step, I need to write the application essays and I am struggling with that part as I do not have much time for the first round applications for most colleges. It will be very helpful to me if I get some guidance on the Application Essay writing area.

I have applied to the below colleges in the GMAT :
Harvard Business School (I am keeping it for the second round) MIT Sloan , UCLA Anderson, Kellogg School of Management, Yale university.
Also, I will be applying to ISB.

Brief overview on my career:
Job : Software Engineer
Work Ex : 5 years +
Companies I have worked with : IBM ( current organization), Ericsson, TCS (Tata Consultancy Services)
Graduation : B-Tech in Electrical Engineering Marks : 8.0 in B-Tech (on a scale of 10). 80% in 12th, 89% in 10th
Ethnicity : Indian Female

Thanks,
Aparajita

Hi Aparajita,

ARINGO provides some great free resources on essays, you can see them here:

And

If you’d like some more specific feedback on your own essays, you can fill out this form in order to get started: https://aringo.com/mba-process-registration/

If you are feeling stressed and unsure of what to do getting some professional help with your essays can really help a lot. But alternatively, consider going for round 2 in order to have more time to work on them.

Good luck!
