Yale SOM Fall 2019 MBA Essay Question

Yale SOM essayBruce DelMonico, assistant dean of admissions at the Yale School of Management, has previewed the required essay for the 2018-2019 full-time MBA application. It remains unchanged from last year’s prompt.

Required Essay Question

Describe the biggest commitment you have ever made. (500 words maximum)

In his post, DelMonico noted the following: “This application essay question evolved from a conversation with Professor of Organizational Behavior Amy Wrzesniewski about how to get a better sense for what our applicants care about in the world. She notes, ‘Reading about future plans is helpful, but actions speak louder than words. What big commitments have applicants already made in their lives to date, how did they follow through on them, and what does this tell us about who they are? That is what is at the heart of this question’.”
