Guys, I am going to be a re-applicant to CBS, this time for the J-term.

I noticed that CBS have an abridged application for re-applicant, wherein they only require a 500-word re-applicant essay, and they state that 'Re-applicants are NOT required to submit additional essays. Only the re-applicant essay is required.'

I was wondering whether I may still go ahead and submit the standard 3 essays, in addition to the required re-applicant essay. I want to do this because I know that my previous essays were completely crap, and as such, want the opportunity to submit them again to better articulate my goals and career ambitions.

Do you think I may be able to do this?

Email the admissions office to check but you should be able to submit an entire application. I was a re-applicant and felt the same way. My reasons for the MBA didn't change but I felt like my first set of essays didn't convey my story very well. Even though you only are required to submit the re-applicant essay I wrote all of the essays and had all new recommendation letters written. At the time the admissions office was ok with that but I would email or call them to check this year. The rules can change every year so just be safe and ask.

I have a current client in this situation. I have advised him to rewrite the essays after reading his initial ones. And given the Columbia direction I am posting below, I would rather have him play offense. They say the additional essays are not required, but they do not say they are not allowed:)

Reapplicants are NOT required to submit additional essays. Only the reapplicant essay is required.
