Does anyone given a thought on two similar sounding question in Haas application

1) what factors have influenced your decision to apply. - Short question 4
2)Why do you want an MBA from Berkeley at this point in your career. - Long question 2

For me the factors that have influenced my decision to apply are also the reasons why I am applying to Berkeley. These questions are puzzling me for quite some time. Any inputs on this will be appreciated.

I think they are different. The 2 says that why Berkeley, not others like CBS, HBS..and the 1 says why you not still be in the job, instead apply to MBA?

As you said in second question we have to write USP of Haas that you consider most important from your carreer goals point of view. So suppose someone is interested in IB/MC he can show how Haas is good in these fields and how one can meet his career objectives by going at Haas and not at HBS,CBS. But first question is still sounds fuzzy to me because if they trying to ask what factors have influenced my decision to apply at Berkeley, they would still be same as second question (like Haas is good in IB/MC because of so and so reasons). But if they are trying to ask what factors have influenced my decision to apply at this point in my career then your response ( why not still in job instead of MBA) makes sense.

I will be starting at Haas in August. Will have more info as classes go on since I will be pretty involved with the admissions process (as much as they let me be).

Feel free to PM me if you're visiting, or ask questions in the Ambassador area (as to benefit all other Haas applicants).

Cheers!
