The essay that is, not the mountain. That said, it is feeling like an uphill struggle at the moment.

Each of our applicants is unique. Describe how your background, values, academics, activities and/or leadership skills will enhance the experiences of other Kellogg students.

I'm finding it much harder to approach these more open ended questions than the ones that are very focussed (Tell us about an ethical dilemma . . . etc.). Finding a 'way in' isn't easy, and there's a lot more latitude about what to include. Whilst this obviously makes for more freedom and a greater ability to paint a picture of oneself, it also means hard decisions about what to leave out, and a lot of thought about the relative value and importance of all the things I could include. But no one said this process was going to be easy, right.
