Tuck's two prompts this year are fairly standard-issue.  Here are some strategies to help you attack them. 


Please respond fully but concisely to the following essay questions. There are no right or wrong answers. We encourage applicants to limit the length of their responses to 500 words for each essay. Please double-space your responses.

A standard "goals" essay -- see any of our previous posts on goals, or our book, for a sense on how to approach this. 

 2. Tell us about your most meaningful leadership experience and what role you played. What did you learn about your own individual strengths and weaknesses through this experience?

A standard "leadership" essay -- see any of our previous posts on leadership, or our book, for more detail on how to attack this question.
