Essential Points to be considered while writing essay

The importance of essays in the selection procedure of IIMs is known to all. Here we are discussing few points that student should consider while writing essays. 

Be yourself in your essays
 
Do not assume personalities based on what you think a particular B School wants from you. Many of you may not realize this but an essay smells of a personality always. If someone is reading 4- 5 essays about you, he can feel what kind of personality you are and his sixth sense will spot all the inconsistencies and false portrayals. If you be yourself in your essays, you will invariably avoid these inconsistencies.
 
Be Interesting
 
People don’t care whether you're good or evil. But no one will forgive you for being boring. Funny but true!! So be interesting in your essays. You don’t have to be a creative writer to do this. Imagine that you are going to tell something interesting about yourself to your friends. Then think about how you would narrate it. And then write it down. 
 
Show the inside of your own 
 
It is very strange that many students do not realize that B-Schools genuinely want to know them as a person. They want to know what choices you have made in life and why. Essays are personal statements you can make about yourself. Keep your essays full of insight about yourself. Don’t keep your essays so superficial that someone reading them doesn’t have a clue about you. For this to happen, you need to go through a lot of introspection about yourself. The sooner you start the better.
 
Stay focused
 
While answering an essay question, do not wander into details that are irrelevant to the essay. Keep your focus and include only those details which are crucial for building your essay.
