I have finnished my HBS essays and now I am doing my profile (the different forms to fill out online). I would like to know how important is to fill out very well this forms. I have spent a lot of time with my essays and now I am going to be just one day to explain the activites, employments, awards, etc... Should have I had to spend more time in this?

There are differing opinions on this but I think its worth it to really put in some time and effort and treat the data forms like another essay (at least the first time). Then you can pretty much copy paste into your other apps. Also, its ok to copy/paste some stuff from your resume into the data forms.

I agree, I spent a decent amount of time on the extracurricular/employment/awards descriptions for the HBS application. I felt that HBS, more than any other school, allowed the perfect amount of characters to describe my participation. Once I was finished, I was able to crib the HBS app for my other schools.

You should definitely be able to knock it out in a single evening.

Good Luck!
