A5. Why did you want an MBA?
The majority of MBAs wanted to learn new skills. Sometimes that was to progress in their current career, sometimes it was to switch careers. These are common story lines in essays as well.
Many MBAs viewed business school as a low-risk opportunity to take a break and think about what they wanted to do. However, no one thought this was a good thing to say in essays. It's understood that you need to show a clear career path, even if you're not sure it's true.
