Beautiful Nevada Essay Contest - Nevada State Bank
One thing I'm sure it means is that this year's BAE does not necessarily comprise the twenty-two very best-written or most beautiful essays published in 2006. Some of the book's essays are quite beautiful indeed, and most are extremely well written and/or show a masterly awareness of craft (whatever exactly that is). But others aren't, don't, especially - but they have other virtues that make them valuable. And I know that many of these virtues have to do with the ways in which the pieces handle and respond to the tsunami of available fact, context, and perspective that constitutes Total Noise. This claim might itself look slippery, because of course any published essay is a burst of information and context that is by definition part of 2007's overall roar of info and context. But it is possible for something to be both a quantum of information and a vector of meaning. Think, for instance, of the two distinct but related senses of 'informative.' Several of this year's most valuable essays are informative in both senses; they are at once informational and instructive. That is, they serve as models and guides for how large or complex sets of facts can be sifted, culled, and arranged in meaningful ways - ways that yield and illuminate truth instead of just adding more noise to the overall roar.

How beautiful college essays are made.
Essay tips: This is a great question, and I have helped my students write beautiful essays in response. You’ll get to tell a story about a wise hero, and that hero is you. Pick something truly challenging. Make sure it’s something meaningful and original – how you worked long hours, or came up with a super-smart algorithm to solve a problem. Ninety-nine percent of MBA applicants are ambitious, hard-working individuals. What sets you apart? Figure out what is at the core of your story. Is it about your expectation of managing someone? Your ability to prevent conflict? Is it about growing up at a socioeconomic disadvantage and finding your way out? Is it about confronting bullies? Re-taking a big exam? Regardless of your history, there are so many good options. Even if your life has been pretty smooth sailing so far, you can find something. And I can help.
