Scholarship essay?
« on: February 25, 2007, 02:48:56 PM »
Hi all,

Lewis & Clark suggests that one write an additional essay if applying for any of their six categories of scholarships.

(I checked off several of the boxes for what to consider for, and am deciding between aiming my essay towards the Business Law (which has IP as a component) category or Public Interest.)

Anybody have any thoughts about the content of an essay like this?  I have a ton of experience as an IT consultant doing a wide range of work of business process analysis, software implementation, etc.

I'm thinking about doing a write up of a recent project I did - (I'm preparing this for publication anyways) - and submit it, as it highlight my analysis skills, ability to abstract, and in the context of software and business processes.

I think that's probably a good route to go, but I'm a little unsure of how to frame the essay - whether to introduce it by saying exactly the above, or whether to let the reader come to their own conclusion, etc.

Thanks for any feedback!
