Action: Classify Your Essays
The next step in the Essay Professor process is to categorize the essay questions you must answer into one of the five classic types*, using our Essay Classification System. The five classic types are:
- Leadership Story Essays
- Career Goals
- Career Story
- "Why Our School"
- "What Will You Contribute" Essays
*Note: Some of your essay questions may not fit into any of the five classic categories.
To help you categorize your essay, we provide a number of examples of essays questions of each type drawn from prior year's applications. The five Essay Professor video lectures are titled by essay type. After categorizing your essays, proceed to the Essay Professor videos devoted to the types of essay questions you must answer. Please note that it is only really necessary to watch the Essay Professor videos devoted to the essay questions you need to answer.
