Thank you for using the timer!

There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
REQUIRED: Explain your short-term and long-term career plans as specifically as possible. When combined with a MBA degree, how will your previous experiences and personal attributes enable you to pursue these goals successfully?
What all i should mention in this essay?Should i mention abt my experiences at jobs,wht i learnt? if you can elaborate it will surely help
This looks like Vanderbilt's "Why MBA?" question. The best way to attack this question is to follow this very rough kind of formula: "I have been doing _____ and have thus gained a lot of experience with _____. My goal is to do _____ in the short term and ____ in the long term. I want to earn an MBA in order to also gain _____ and _____, which I believe will complement my past experience. School ______ is especially great because of its strength in ______, etc."
I changed my job two months ago.In the new job i got additional responsibilities but i won't be able to show the results of my planning and execution as it's been only two months tht i changed the job.
So in the resume, i should only mention abt the new responisbilities i have been assigned in the new job ?if i do not mention abt the results or outcomings of my new company,will it have a negative effect on my resume?
Is it advisable to apply in London Business School in the third round?
Secondly, i have been currently working on a management model that will initially suit for IT industry.I wanted to ask do i need to explain my model in the Extra essay? I have it's presentation and explanation ready? Should i send this also along my application material?
Third, where exactly should i mention about my modal? It's at preliminary stage and yet not been implemented.I plan to implement after my MBA, so where exactly i should mention in the application abt my modal and my plans on implementing the modal?
I advise against applying to any top school in Round 3 because the odds tend to be very slim. Only apply if you're prepared to apply again as a reapplicant next year.
Re: the model, I'd be careful about getting too bogged down in tehcnical details here. Also, since it's just preliminary, it's not yet really an accomplishment. An adcomm may ask "So what?" Remember that they're more interesting in leadership traits than academic exercises.
While applying to one of the B-schools I have to give answer to one of the questions," Describe how your involvement in activities outside of work have contributed to your personal achievements and enhanced your self-development?"
What exactly i should answer in this question?
Second, if for a particular Essay question if there is a word limit of 750 words, do i need to give answer in 750 words or I can write in 500 words also? I mean if I finish my essay answer in 500-600 words, will it have a negative impact on my application?
You obviously know how to answer this question better than I do. But one approach is to use this essay to highlight things that your professional experience hasn't alowed you to demonstrate. For instance, if you haven't had the chance to show leadership skills on the job, but you have been able to do this in something outside of work, then that's a good topic for this essay.
Re: word count, less is more! Don't feel that you need to use all 750 words. But be sure that you answer the the question.
