Hi judeo15,

Thanks for posting. Regarding your attending medical school, if you have a high volume of changes on your resume, you may appear to lack commitment or be unfocused. You will probably need to explain the reason for your changes and help the admissions committee to understand the motivation behind your decisions. It’s important in this situation to refrain from merely chronicling your resume. What is most important is to explain why each step is a logical one in your path to the MBA and longer term goals.

I also wanted to mention that business schools are most looking to cultivate future leaders, so examples of leadership experience will be important. You should think about this when discussing your experience with the pharmaceutical company and Macys.


Best,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
