For the second question
"Why do you want to pursue an MBA and why from this school?"
I would spend a min on why MBA:
- Career growth
- Business skills
- Learn approaches outside of your industry
Why from this school: - 1.5 min
There is a lot you can say here but I would just pick
- The key distinguishing factor or philosophy for that school (e.g. case method for HBS, business fundamentals for Wharton)
- A program u will participate in (social enterprise initiative etc.)
- A prof you like
- A club you will have an impact on
- Somehow tie back the location of the school (e.g. Lots of Underwater photography fanatics in Boston or something along those lines.
