I am under the impression that Col's essay 1 is mainly focused on the future and that any previous experience should be kept under 100 words or less. what do you all think about this?

In terms of the EC, I think the best way is to work that portion into your essay one when you discuss about clubs and organizations when asnwering "How will Columbia help you achieve your goals".

Same as J-term essays, you just don't need to do #4. Go check out the 2009 Application Information thread.

Official ED application is out today...
here are the essays:

What are your short-term and long-term post-MBA goals? How will Columbia Business School help you achieve these goals? (Recommended 750 word limit) : *

Master Classes are the epitome of bridging the gap between theory and practice at Columbia Business School. View link below. Please provide an example from your own life in which practical experience taught you more than theory alone. (Recommended 500 word limit) :
You have not submitted an essay for this question.
View with Real Player: http://merlin.gsb.columbia.edu:8080/ram ... s-promo.rm

Please provide an example of a team failure of which you've been a part. If given a second chance, what would you do differently? (Recommended 500 word limit) :

(Optional) Is there any further information that you wish to provide to the Admissions Committee? (Please use this space to provide an explanation of any areas of concern in your academic record or your personal history.) :

Gotta go visit an operation management class later.... flight delayed caused me the opportunity for a different class.....

BTW, anyone noticed that optional essay has no word limit?
Anyone else aiming for a 10-page optional essay?

It feels a little bit different from what djhouse was posting about...
The formating, I mean
In any case I didn't see last years' app, so I cannot really confirm for sure. :p

Guys, anyone figure out what the difference is between the "Employment History" section on the application and the resume upload in the next section? The application says you only need to upload a resume for scholarship consideration - so is it not supposed to be a professional resume, then?

I think they are different.

Does anyone know what does Salary PIN (in Work History section) mean?

Christina on the Businessweek forums said if you don't know what "Salary PIN" is, just leave it blank.

Thank you Solaris!
Do you know if the 400 charactor means 400 words? How do we count number of charactors?

400 characters, I believe, more or less means 400 keystrokes - for instance, "this sentence is 33 characters."

So, 400 characters is WAY less than 400 words.

Your word processing software's "Word Count" tool or equivalent will tell you how many characters you have in a paragraph.
