Hello,

Thank you to everyone who is contributing to this thread - your posts and questions have been very insightful.

I have two questions I need help with. Responses from current students/admissions consultants would be helpful!

1. I have had multiple roles at my current organization. Should I list them out as separate in Section 5/Employment details? Asking because I want to list 5 achievements/responsibilities per ROLE, whereas the application interface allows for 5 achievements/responsibilities per ORGANIZATION.

2. I want to mention 2 summer internships from college (because they are very recognizable brands) - what is the best place in the application form to name drop them?

I will apply in the cycle 1 deadline Oct 15.

Akbar Bhai,

I will answer your first question- if you want to break up the responsibilities and achievements per role and write them at 5 separate places, its perfectly fine. I adopt that approach for my applicants who have substantial work experience. However, draft them well because you are still increasing the adcom's work in asking them to read that extra info.
