Trista’s Tips: Writing Your Essays

As September draws to a close, it’s likely many of you are working on your applications if you’re targeting Fall 2019 entry for our full-time programs—particularly as our first application deadline approaches.

The essay section of your application is totally within your control and is a place for you to show your personality and round out your candidacy. Trista offers advice on how to best position yourself while answering Simon’s two required essay prompts and also gives a few examples of when you should—and when you should not—use the optional essay.


Have more questions about the application process? Tune into tomorrow’s webinar, “Round 1 Application Tips” at 9 a.m. EDT! A member of the Admissions Committee will guide you and other prospective applicants through the MBA and MS application process, provide tips on constructing a competitive application, and address some of the most commonly asked questions about applying to Simon Business School. If you plan to apply by our October 15 application deadline, you are encouraged to attend this session.

Happy essay writing—we hope to review your application soon!
