When you write your essay, I'd advise you not to be too hung up about it. Remember, there's a time limit. Write it, and if you have time left over, go back and prune your "being"s as you see fit. It'll be better to lose a half point for wordiness or whatever than losing one or more because your arguments/conclusions suffered because you spent too much time stressing over the "being" count.
I'm a current Corporate Residency MBA student at Dalhousie University (Nova Scotia, Canada).
This account is to help spread the word about this unique program, as well as to help provide a student perspective for MBA applications and GMAT experiences.
Every week I publish a blog about life in the CRMBA by interviewing current students. Find us on Twitter and Facebook, or post any questions/comments/concerns in this thread here on gmatclub.com
Highlights of the program include:
Specifically designed by Corporations/Employers, No work experience necessary, 8-month paid corporate residency, Grades/GMAT score not the main focus for admittance
