Describe the biggest commitment you have ever made. (500 words)
This year’s application essay question evolved from a conversation with Amy Wrzesniewski, Michael H. Jordan Professor of Management, who noted, “Reading about future plans is helpful, but actions speak louder than words.” In your response, we are looking to learn about how you have approached a particular commitment, whether personal or professional, and the behaviors that support it. You should be less concerned about what we want to hear and instead focus on being honest with yourself in selecting and describing the commitment that has been most significant to you.
