And now as a reward, you get to write another essay!! 😀
Berkeley-Haas does financial aid awards as a separate step in the admissions process and they ask for a Personal Statement (same thing as an essay) to be completed by those who want to be considered for their Dean’s Fellowship. A few other school scholarships are also available by submission of that same personal statement as part of the application, and as all schools do, they’ve also often got an opportunity or two for specialized scholarships sponsored by outside foundations and other organizations. The Haas scholarships for entering students are found here .
If you’re facing down the prospect of figuring out how to answer yet another essay question (after you thought you were done!) well we’ve got some assistance to offer.
Most people don’t get these essays reviewed by us – though you could. What many find helpful are our special-purpose scholarship essay guides.
We’ve got one for Tuck (their scholarship essay is due right after their standard round deadlines) We used to have one for Tuck until they removed that requirement. Until Berkeley does that (hint hint), we have one for Haas too.
These essays offer real opportunity – and at least the Haas one is typically gobs less stressful to write! After all, you’ve already been ADMITTED! Getting some scholarship money would be gravy.
There’s definitely some ways to make yours stand out. Check out the helpful hints from EssaySnark and hopefully you’ll see the scholarship board come back with an offer to sweeten your admit!
