Analysis of Berkeley / Haas Essay 2: What is your most significant accomplishment?

What is your most significant accomplishment? (250 words)

This is a very tall order for a 250 word essay, so brevity will be key. You’ll clearly want to select an impressive achievement to discuss – ideally one in which you had a positive impact on a person, group or organization (as it would reflect well on you to say that you consider it significant that you improved something for others). It will be important to comment not only on the results, but also on the actions and thought process by which you brought them about. Note that the question does not limit you to the professional realm, so feel free to think of examples from your outside activities in selecting a topic for this short response.
