【MBA 2015年入学用エッセイ課題】 Dartmouth (Tuck)

Dartmouth College (Tuck School)より2015年入学用エッセイ課題が発表されました。エッセイ#3はOptionalと位置付けられていますので、(reapplicantは除く)2題となります。エッセイ#1はGoal型で、エッセイ#2もリーダーシップ経験を語る一方で、そうした自らのパフォーマンスに対する観察力も問われています。Strengthsはともかく、”Weaknesses”の振り返りをする際には、時として”自分へのダメだしを行ってしまうケースが見られます。このWeaknessesがエッセイ課題の中で問われる意味を認識した上で、出願者としての全体像を伝えるべく最適なエピソードやメッセージ内容を考えてきましょう。
