troika Posted November 6, 2010 Share Posted November 6, 2010 Hi all, I just finished my personal essay for MIT ( role of family and community in personal and academic development), and realized I got quite creative in the process. Now I am wondering if I should make it more professional, so my question is how personal is acceptable? I haven't followed a well defined common thread because there are just so many things I could talk about. I also tried not to write more than a page (around 400 words). While I realize I can't expect to receive any clear-cut answers, it would be helpful to have a rough idea of what other people included in their personal essays. Thank you.
