Here's the goal essay for 2009 F/T

1) Describe in a brief essay (do not exceed 250 words per section - 750 words maximum):
a) your post-MBA short-term goals (immediately after graduation)
b) your post-MBA long-term goals (3-5 years after graduation), and
c) how your professional experience, when combined with an MBA degree, will enable you to achieve these goals


Did anyone start it yet? the guideline seems really strict, and restrict the applicant to only write 250 words per section. Did you guys follow this format to the dot? My long term goal is alot more comprhensive to my short term - as my short term is a stepping stone to my long term, I wonder how I can get all this in...

I spoke to admissions officers at the NBMBAA conference last week and asked that question. The advice I was given was pretty basic. They told me to stick to the guidelines as close as possible and any major deviation would signal failure to follow directions. From the conversation I wouldn't fluctuate more than 10%. I think if you spend 225 on one section and 275 on the other you should be fine.

Did anyone attend the Spotlight on Marshall event last weekend. It was very interesting. It was reduced to only one day because of the "economy", but still very informative. There weren't many people from out of state though.

I was just at USC on Saturday for some volunteer work that I do. It was a beautiful, warm sunny day with 75-degree temps. One huge plus for this school is that the student body is arguably among the best in the country. Good luck to those applying!
