Hi, I'm planning to apply to Broad for Fall 2019 course. I has no information about video essay such as how long it takes, how many questions, which criteria they are looking for in a video. Could someone who has experience for video essay in Broad share? Thanks in advance.

Hi

I am facing an error while going for the application fee payment transaction. The application fee got deducted from my credit card but there was an ERROR message that was displayed. The message is:
"An error has occurred. The problem has been logged by the system administrator"

I did twice the transaction and got the same message both the time. I am unable to submit the application until the transaction goes through. I have already mailed them and left a message.

Is anyone facing the same issue?
Can anyone guide me with some advice?

Regards

It it helps, here is a discussion on powerpoint and video essays happened last year.

Essay A (required)

Please provide 2 PowerPoint Slides-

Slide 1. should illustrate why Michigan State University’s MBA program should admit you.
Slide 2. should include a writing sample (minimum 350 words).

Is it just me or is this realllyyy vague?


I think in a way, MSU intentionally made slide 1 vague in order to see what the applicant would do with it. Considering they get a lot of applications, making it a slide format is one way to allow applicants to really visually make their response stand out, and illustrate their capabilities with Powerpoint at the same time. This also allows you to very concisely point out what sets you apart from other applicants. I essentially picked 4 reasons that made me a good candidate and differentiated me from the crowd, and put those on the slide with supporting information to back each one up. Something I'd recommend thinking about would be what YOU can bring to Broad. Why should they want you amongst their class of 2020?

Another thing to consider is, if you click on the video interview link, you'll see that the first video question is essentially going to ask you to pitch your slide 1 like a presentation (in the 2 minutes). At least, that was my first video interview question (I'm assuming it will be the same for everyone). They tell you this ahead of time once you click on the link as a warning to ensure that you have completed the "essays"/slides before doing the video interview questions.


Thanks for the heads-up on the video question. I read the directions that stated to finish the slides first, but had not ventured that far to see how it references back.
I had a similar idea to you, picking 3 or 4 pictures/phrases that showcased what I am passionate about and how they relate to me/leadership/etc.

Did you start the writing sample yet? Did you pick a topic admissions related or just a seperate sample that shows your writing ability? I have a few argumentative pieces I've typed up over the years, but none that are related to my professional career. Not sure if that is out of scope or not.

Did my video interview today...ugh, I am not a natural in front of the camera. It was harder than I expected for something so simple.

Oh yeah, and I cut one question off early thinking I had another retry, and I didn't. Oops.

I did interview on campus during my visit though and I think that went much better. I'll be submitting the application tomorrow after brushing up the slide/essay a bit.

Hey, has anyone tried out the video essay this year? Does it has to be through a webcam on the PC or laptop? Can a iPad with Interviewstream APP also do the job?

I completed all standard tests. Should I try to apply for round 1 of MSU? I feel it's quite a little bit hurry. If I apply in round 2, is it more competitive than round 1?
