Georgetown McDonough School Admission Essays

In 500 words or less, applicants to both the Full-time and Flex MBA now have the option to:

Describe a situation when you were asked to lead outside of your comfort zone. What leadership characteristics did you exemplify in this situation that allowed you to succeed?

Describe a situation when failure has been your fuel. What was your failure (or when did you not succeed to your full potential), and how did you use this as motivation to move forward and be successful in a future situation?

Describe the personal brand that you will bring to business school using examples or experiences that support how you’ve developed it. How do you believe your personal brand will strengthen the McDonough community? As you complete your MBA program, how do you hope to see your personal brand evolve through the transformative experience of business school?

The school also has a new application system that is more streamlined and efficient to applicants, reducing the number of questions by about 20 percent.
