Hi All,

This is my first thread. I got call letters for GD/PI round from some of the best b-schools in India. I would like to know how to write the following two essays:

1. Page number 221 of your 300 page autobiography would be? (300 words)
2. Suppose you had to choose two people to travel with you on a cross-country trip. Who would
you choose and why? What would you hope to learn from them? The people could be alive
now, from another era or fictitious characters. (300 words).

They also asked the following essays which I think that I can handle.

3.Where do you see yourself 5 years down the line? Why and how do you think SIBM (college) will
help you reach there? (300 words)
4.Describe an ethical dilemma you have experienced firsthand. Discuss how you thought about
and managed the situation. (300 words)
5.A recent event ( popular or personal ) that seemed wrong to you and how would you handle it
in retrospect (300 words)
6.Describe a time when you have taken on a particularly challenging or stretching target. What
were the Challenges? What did you do to overcome the challenges? To what extent were you
able to achieve it? (300 words)

Please suggest any source of sample essays for above mentioned topics.
Let me know If I violate the forum rules.

Thank you for the consideration.

Where do you see yourself 5 years down the line?

This is part of that autobiography, isn't it?
With these essays, you will be giving a full picture of your envisioned future. For example, if you know what you want to be doing in 5 years, it is because you know what kind of life you want to lead and what kind of legacy you want to leave. Also, you know what people influence you in that direction, right? Whom do you admire? Use the essay about a trip with 2 people as an opportunity to show them what kind of person inspires you. What are you passionate about?

The event you think is wrong shows your moral development, the challenge you describe shows your experience and areas of interest. These essays are a great way for the reader to know you, and if you know yourself you can respond to each part.

I look forward to seeing what you write! If you are not sure how to respond to part of this, ask your inner self, the self that is calling the shots and trying to get this incorrigible person to do the necessary work each day. :-)

Thank you for the reply, Kevin.

I am sorry for my late reply. I am busy with the exams these days. I have completed writing three essays as of now. Shall I create a separate thread for each essay?
