Apologies if this post is in the wrong place (it's my first one!) - I have been a long-time lurker like many. Took the GMAT earlier this month and thanks to many of the tips on here, got a 760. Made the decision to apply to HBS in R1 but now have a small (somewhat trivial) question about the application that has been on my mind for a couple of days now - I have a nagging suspicion I might be interpreting a section incorrectly and wanted to pose the question to others.
For those who are currently working through the application, under the Employment section where you can list up to 3 roles - each role asks for a "Description", "Key Accomplishments" and "Most Significant Challenge". How did you guys interpret the "Description" section - did you take it to mean a description of the role or a description of the organization? I assumed it was asking for a description of the role but that seems a bit like a repetition of your resume, does it not? How did you go about differentiating this section from the information on your resume?
Any insight you could provide to ease my mind would be greatly appreciated
