Analysis of Michigan / Ross Essay 1: Introduce yourself to your future Ross classmates in 100 words or less.

Introduce yourself to your future Ross classmates in 100 words or less.

A slightly expanded edition of last year’s prompt asking applicants to introduce themselves, this year’s version specifies an audience: one’s fellow students (rather than the admissions committee).  Still, the major gist and narrow word limit remain, requiring applicants to reflect carefully on the aspects of their backgrounds they most want to highlight.  While a brief mention of your professional background and career goals may be appropriate, we encourage applicants to use this opportunity to showcase elements of their personalities and candidacies that they will not have the chance to address in their responses to the other application essays. Perhaps you have a particularly interesting work or extra-curricular experience to share, or a personal accomplishment or aspect of your heritage of which you’re especially proud. By focusing on a range of qualities and characteristics, this essay will allow applicants to demonstrate the well-rounded nature of their candidacies even within the 100 word limit.
