I am planning to apply to HKUST MBA for 2013 intake and now working on my resume and essay.
I have a quetion whether I should write "additional essay" or not.
I haven't worked for two years because I had to follow my husband who went to a MBA in Chicago.
I worked at a bank as a private wealth manager up until we move to Chicago.
( I am from south Korea)
I have prepared to apply to a MBA for two years.
(Learning English and accounitng, takign CFA, GMAT, and TOEFL, and participated in community work.)
So I will write about my efforts for the last two years and the reason I haven't worked for two years in the essays.
I think I can cover those story in the last essay topic "tell us about you as a person"
But I am not sure my story mentioned above is appropriate story for the topic.
The reason that I am not sure is that I read somewhere that I shouldn't write a eassy unneccessarily long because adcoms read hundreads of essays, so they don't want long essays.
Please, give me your thoughts.
Thank you for your answer in advance.
