Masters program in Finance. I should get my MBA, I am an investment banking associate, but I am dragging my heals on it.

I did title the essay after all. I spoke with an adviser; she told me I should because I am writing about a life experience.

But now I can't use that essay for their MBA program.

Give your essay a title. It will make it more memorable for the person reading it, and help them understand it. Without a title, it's easier to get lost and not know what the point of the essay is/give up and move on to the next one.

Do you mean that you won't even consider jobs that ask for a one page personal statement?

Cover letter + CV + interview should be it (it's also entirely likely that I've indeed written PS for jobs and forgot. My last job offer from an international school in SG required me to write an essay related to my experiences in Education, I only wrote it because they requested I write it after the interview.) I'm a good writer but the whole idea of a "personal statement" just makes me wince with all of the same garbage financial-job responses people write about being "adaptable" and talking about their first made-up business success... kill me now. Trite, trite, trite.

As someone going to a top 10 mba I can with full confidence say that our particular school looks down on the titling of essays EXCEPT for our one "creative"/different essay. For the straight forward ones just answer the questions and make sure its memorable.
