Quick question regarding Cornell essay #2:

What career do you plan to pursue upon completing the MBA and why? How will the Johnson School help you achieve this goal?

- Does the singular use (career, goal) mean that you should only describe your short-term goal?

Those of you who have completed the Cornell app already, what did you do?

I answered both short and long term.

I'm working on Cornell essays also....

Does it bother you that there is no "Career Path" essay?
at first I was happy to see such a short app, but then I think... how do they get a picture of us if that is all they ask? and with 400 word limit toO!

should I be worried or relieved that it's so short?

This IS the career path essay - and it's all gotta fit. I went ahead and free-wrote a big, long essay (I'm wordy when left to my own devices) and then worked to find the core message in all my blather. Now I'm working to get it down to 400 words. It's doable. if you think about it, answering this question with only a short-term goal and with no history is answering without context.

BTW - I am an Ithacan, so if anyone wants to talk about I-town, lemme know. I like it here.
