Texas McCombs Essay Tips and Application Deadlines: 2022-2023

by Personal MBA Coach, Nov 8, 2022

Are you considering applying to Texas McCombs in the 2022-2023 application cycle?

This year, the full-time MBA application includes one essay question, one video assessment, and an optional statement. The video assessment is a new addition to the McCombs application, allowing candidates to share their story in their own voice.

The prompts for each are as follows:

Essay 1: Picture yourself at graduation. Describe how you spent your time as a Texas McCombs MBA to achieve your personal and professional goals. (500 words)

Video Assessment: Texas McCombs is excited to introduce the Video Assessment as a new application component for the 2022-23 admissions cycle. Given all applicants will complete the Video Assessment, MBA candidates will have increased accessibility to the application process and the opportunity to share their story with us in their own voice. Through the Video Assessment, the Admissions Committee will have a chance to experience the “real” you, beyond a resume, test scores, and transcripts.

All applicants will be required to complete the Video Assessment shortly after submitting their application and paying the fee. Applicants have 7 days to complete the assessment upon receiving access to the video submission platform. There will be 7 question prompts and applicants will have 3 minutes to answer each prompt.

Optional Statement: If applicable, applicants can provide an optional statement in the essay section of the application. Applicants should only provide an optional statement if there is something they wish to address about their candidacy that is not addressed elsewhere.

Here, Personal MBA Coach has shared our tips for tackling the essay question prompt, as well as the video assessment.
