Hi folks,
So it seems that many (if not all) of the apps ask about your "areas of interest" and then ask you select from a list. Sample items on this list: healthcare, nonprofit, consulting, investment management, etc.

So how much do these actually matter? I realize that we should pick something in line with the goals stated in the essays but does anyone look at those? Is there any value in picking something less popular like nonprofit?

I think you should either pick "Undecided" or something that ties in logically with what you're saying in your goals essay. I'm personally going with "Undecided."
