Says who? One aspect of an Admissions Officer's job is know what essay questions other colleges are asking each year. I can just imagine a Harvard Admissions Officer reading your favorite on-line destination essay and saying "Oh, look is sending us his USC essay. I guess he doesn't care enough about us to write something original."
This year’s USC MBA essay set is unchanged from last season. The program again requires applicants to respond to a single required prompt in 500-700 words, with an optional essay for all candidates and an alternative required prompt for reapplicants. Overall, these prompts reflect a focus on what the candidate hopes to get out of an MBA (personally and/or professionally), and how Marshall’s program will facilitate their progress toward these objectives. The retention of last season’s prompts suggests that this essay structure worked well for the USC MBA adcom, yielding useful information in their process of extending interview offers and making admissions decisions.
