CMC supplement essay: letter format?

For the CMC analytical essay that asks: Leadership is a constant theme and emphasis at CMC. In fact, one of the ways we describe CMC students is "Leaders in the Making." Choose someone, fictional or nonfictional, historical or contemporary, whom you consider to be a leader. Suppose you are this person's primary advisor. How would you advise this person and why?

I wrote mine in the format of a letter to the person I chose... Which seemed appropriate, given the question, but now that I've written it I'm just kind of thinking that it responds to the prompt, but does it count as an analytical essay?

Anyone who's written theirs already, is writing theirs now, or goes to CMC and wrote this last year, please tell me what you think! Is letter format acceptable?
