We recently received this most amazing note from a long-ago BSer, and we asked for permission to post it, because it’s just that good! Since many of you are in Essay H3ll right now, we figured we’d share this so you can see what’s on the other side this massive effort and loss of hair you’re experiencing.
Hope all is well.
I wanted to give you an update on my progress so far. I spent the summer interning with [bigname] investment bank in New York, and was fortunate to receive a return offer.
My experiences at [topschool] have been very positive, life-changing even. During the Spring Quarter, I took the [specific leadership course] which had a pronounced effect in the way I organised my life.
True to [topschool]’s culture, I was taught that behaving ethically meant acting with the goal of producing pro social outcomes. I was also shown research on how behaving ethically would have a positive effect on my reputation, happiness, and even my productivity.
The internship was a great time to put the course’s lessons into practice. Over the summer, I stayed later to help colleagues, gave to the homeless, helped the assistants out with their IT troubles, and performed other assorted random acts of kindness. I never expected that I would say this, but business school has shown me how to be a happier person.
This holistic growth would not have been possible without your help, EssaySnark, and I thought it would be nice to show you how your help has, in turn, helped others.
Obviously this person is walking the walk! So cool to get this from them, and so cool to think that all this harping on you folks with the essays we’re decimating may lead to many of you having similar transformations in your future!
And now… back to work! 😀
