Hi,

Thanks for your advice in advance.

1. For the MBA resume, should I include my GPA?
2. Each school's application work experience section contains a responsibilities/accomplishments portion. How does should the info we put in this section differ from the info we put in our resume? I am assuming that we should be elaborating on the info in our resume in the application. Is this assumption correct?

1. Yep
2. A lot of it will be the same. Sometimes in the application form you have a bit more space, so you can add some extra stuff. No need to elaborate too much. But if you have great stuff which didn't fit in your resume, you have the opportunity to place it here.

Best,
Jon

1. It's fine to mention GPA in the resume, but if you omit it, it’s not going to make a difference as it is separately reported. But if you want to provide additional information (example: percentile standing in the class) which doesn’t fit elsewhere, it’s a good idea to use the space in resume
2. You usually have more space in the online form, which you can use to add details
