【Essay Questions for Fall 2014】: U of Michigan (Ross)

特にエッセイ課題2は、3パートに分かれていますが、Management教育を受けたいと思ったきっかけ、さらにはRoss Schoolに対する調査度合、そして卒業後のキャリパスなど、それぞれのパートを統合すると、他校でも問われることが多いオーソドックスなエッセイ課題と言えます。

その一方で、敢えてパートごとに分類するところにRoss Schoolアドミッションチームの視点がうかがえると思います。アクション・ラーニングは、Ross Schoolの代表的な教育メソッドでもあるため、出願者の立場としては、プロアクティブに関連情報を収集した成果を「出願理由」へとつなげていきたいところですね。
