You could compare using an essay formula to traveling with an old fashioned roadmap. It can guide you from New York to Chicago or Mumbai to Delhi for example, but it has certain inherent limitations. For instance, it:
- Is restricted to two dimensions, so it cannot convey the grandeur (or perils) of peaks and valleys
- Says nothing about the inhabitants, their culture or whether they’ll welcome or shun you
- Doesn’t anticipate traffic flow, accidents or bumps in the road, and…
- Is useless at night if your flashlight battery dies.

I have written this free report, “Top 7 MBA Admission Essay Strategies That Go Beyond The Roadmap ,” to answer this question and more. I invite you to explore the terrain with me as you read on!
