How to highlight improvements on reapp [#permalink] New post 10 May 2013, 11:49
Hi Everyone,

I have a few improvements I want to make sure adcoms see as I reapply to a couple top-two programs ;). I'm curious if I should try to highlight these in my resume/short answer questions or if I should just leave them alone and trust the admissions officers will see:

-Improved GMAT score (quant up in particular)

-Took course in mathematics for management, received A

-Vastly improved website on my side startup

-Promotion (clearly on my resume)

Thanks!

The most significant factor in re-applicant essays should be to demonstrate that they have strengthened their profile in their weak area since they last applied. Please "do not leave them alone". In addition to mentioning them in your resume and goals essay, you should also elaborate them in "reapplication essay". This will show your perseverance to better your self and your interest in the school.
Good luck,
Poonam

Of course you should write that stuff!!! Plus if you have any advances in your volunteer work or interests/sports, you can add that too. But just as importantly as giving the "list" of your improvements is to CONTEXTUALIZE it! Meaning, the school wants to see more than a bunch of random improvements, they want to see you stubbornly persevere towards your goals, and they want proof of that progress. And actually it sounds like you have a lot of good new info to give them, so make sure it is all there. At the same time, you should be carefully analyzing your last year's applications to identify your weaknesses, and to make good on them.

All the best,

Obviously, highlight the improvement areas. But my fear is that you might ignore some of your strong points just to highlight the 'improvement'. Don't believe that "they already know" your strengths. In other words, view your application in totality and dont keep a heavy re-applicant baggage. However, go full throttle on the re-application essay. All the best!
