I have a question about the application section under "Motivation and Goals". There are two questions:

What is your short-term career goal? (250 word max)
What is your long-term post-MBA goal? (250 word max)

These are non-essay questions, and are short answer questions. I am wondering whether most people get close to the 250 word max, or put a simple answer of a few sentences. I feel like I could succinctly answer these in 2-3 sentences each and be < 100 words, but I could also put a lot more background to get closer to the max if they are looking for a more detailed response. I was surprised they give you this much room, because that's pretty close to the essay lengths (300 and 400 words).

Any thoughts on these questions and the level of detail in response?


This is actually a great question. For those who have received admission to the program, can you please provide insights?

I am in the process of starting my application. I feel like my GPA is going to haunt me in all my applications. I have a consultation with Square One Prep tonight. I am going to re-take the GMAT on 01/12 and hopefully I can raise my score. Good luck to everyone who is currently awaiting a decision and hopefully I see some of you Spring 2019!!! :please

- GMAT = 640 (Quant 44. Verbal 33. IR 5. AWA 6) - I have a scheduled re-take 01/12

- GPA = 2.52 ( UCI - B.A. Economics ) - Worked full time to pay for college. Did not really have the time to focus on school due to personal/family issues.

Are you sure MBA is the right move with 19 years of WE? You could be a better fit for Executive if you're also running your own firm. I want to make sure you have evaluated both Executive and PT MBA before applying.

Mybad I haven’t been on the forum in awhile. I just logged in and saw this post. Yes I considered executive but I really want to experience part time. I have a retake of the GMAT 12/22 and 01/12. I’ve been nose deep in studying hopefully raising my score to offset GPA. I’ve also signed up for mathematics for management at UCLA to help with GPA.

After I complete my GMATs I will re-assess my profile. How is everyone coming along with their apps? Hope all is well!!!
