Hi

Wharton offers less space to describe your activities and honors vs. other schools. Where have applicants tried to communicate these important details elsewhere in the application?

Thank you =)

You're right -- Wharton has one of the most condensed applications of all of the top schools. I usually advise clients to ensure the details that won't fit in to the app are covered on their resume. In fact, for this very reason you may need a slightly different version of your resume for each school--usually with only the "personal/activities/additional" section changing across them. I have clients widen margins and lessen white space to get things to fit in. The MBA application resume is not about the document looking pretty, it's about communication as much important information as you can within one page and ideally telling a story about your career and your achievements outside of work.

Hope that helps!

The resume is a good place to start as well as to a lesser extend the essays if you can weave them into your narrative (if appropriate) as well as the interview. If you make it this far this is a great way to add color to some of the introductory "Tell Me About Yourself" questions that typically lead of of interviews. But make sure at the very least you are including all relevant info in the resume. Finally, if you are still tight on space you will need to prioritize experience where you were a leader or made the most impact, being just a member is less important when space is an issue.
