Key points to Remember for IIM A Essay questions for R2:

1) Do not LIE
2) Focus on the story flow and make your stories interesting and captivating
3) Shine the spotlight on key Learning from situations
4) Put effort to understand the program being offered and how it aligns with your goals
5) Show clarity in career goals
6) Use correct grammar and vocabulary
7) Read-Edit-Repeat (Again and Again)

But I guess that none of the colleges has ever asked for 100 words essays! 100 words is just 8 lines and traditional methods will not do this time!

The word limit of 100 words sounds ridiculous even to me. However, if the college decides to stick to it, understand two things:
1) Every applicant is facing the same challenge of fitting his/her story in 100 words
2) Consider this to be your first MBA lesson in resource optimization :-D

That being said, most of these Key points still hold true, irrespective of whether the word limit is 50 or 500.

Regards,
Tridisha

For the question - Why would you not like to go back to your last organization?

Is it asking about the previous organization or the current organization I am working in?

I ask this because as on date my 'last organization' will be the previous organization I was working in. However, post MBA my 'last organization' will be the company where I am currently working.

Last organization is the current organization that you are working in.

Thanks for clarifying Tridisha. The question looks a bit confusing to me.
Sorry to ask, but have you verified this with any official source at IIM A.

Hi Tridisha1,

Can you please give some tips to answer these questions within the 100 word limit. Reducing the word count is making my sentences passive.
Also, how to draw a background before adding the STAR approach to a failure?

Thanks!
