I know you are supposed to try and make yourself as interesting as possible on the resume. I am very active in fantasy football, and I feel like there are clear business applications (ROI on players, strategy, etc.). How would this be viewed by the admissions committee? Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!

Hey rmj4040 - good question! It's always nice to see some unique interests called out on a resume. You probably don't want to stretch the applicability of it too much - we're not seeing how fantasy football would fit into an essay topic, given how abbreviated most schools' essays are these days (in past years there was more room for this sort of thing). However, you certainly can include it in the Other Interests or whatever section you've got at the very bottom of your resume. So yes! Do that! The adcoms won't give it much weight but it's always helpful for them to know how you spend your time and what you're passionate about. If this is something that you're truly obsessive with, then it might fit into some essays - the operative words being "might" and "some" - one that comes to mind could be Columbia Essay 3 as an example, if you're interested in them - but you'd need to show how it would be "surprising" to your cluster, and that could be difficult to communicate (lots of bschool students are probably into fantasy football).

Hope that helps!
