We have this thing where we sometimes review BSers’ essays for free, out in the open, here on the blahg. It’s definitely not the same level of feedback that you’ll get with a formal Essay Decimator but for you cheapskates desperate types eager and willing stalkers of the blahg, it’s something we do.

So who the heck is EssaySnark, anyway?!
We're the snarky experts in MBA admissions!
Sometimes amused and often appalled by what candidates write in their MBA applications to top bschools, EssaySnark created this little blahg to share common mistakes. Learn from them and avoid making admissions directors laugh (or want to hurl) when they read your essays. If you are hoping to have your essay reviewed anonymously on the blahg for free, submit it for consideration.

Quick follow-up: The BSer who wrote this essay did in fact end up getting in somewhere great!

We still thought it was worth mentioning the success, though.

I plan on answering this question by discussing my commitment to turn vegan. This commitment does not directly tie to my work experience, but it does represent how I go about making decisions. Am I expected to talk about my professional experiences or future aspirations? Or can it be purely personal?
