Make it personal and don't reuse essays for multiple schools because they'll know. Also, allow a lot of time for writing and revising

As much as I'd like to re-use essays, I think there's only 2 essays that overlap across the 6 schools I'm applying to 😅

Personalize 🔹Reference admitted.com 🔹do a lot of proof reads, and get opinions from other admitted (and dinged) students 🔹good forum on Reddit for B School 🔹start with an outline, then fill in and cut / add to make the length requirements
