I just realized after i submitted my Sloan app that i did not include "full-time" / "Part-time" in my resume. Do you guys think that this will be counted against me? I mean my resume is pretty standard, and all of my positions are full-time.

This is odd - I used the MIT Sloan Resume template and it didn't have the full-time/part-time under jobs. But you're right, the application instructions DO say to include this. I doubt that such a minor detail would be used to reject applications (I've heard admissions officers say that even essays with the wrong school name in them are not auto-rejects), but maybe they use it to see if people can follow directions (I didn't either).

Yes, I didn't include that either but I also totally didn't include any part time.. maybe that works out in my favor. However, don't people just include the title in the part time position (i.e XYZ Summer Intern or ABC Co-op etc). Are you saying the ask was to separate full time from part time as 2 sections? Also, I just used a standard template similar to other schools, not the Sloan template (which they never linked to in the application).

I didn't indicate full or part-time neither as all my jobs were full time.

Yeah i hope not. I mean i took weeks describing how i "felt" my success with that essay. It would be terrible if that oversight on my part excluded me from the admissions process.

I think the most important is to have a short, 1 page resume. I had almost 3 pages initially, but eventually trimmed it down to 1 page, by just showing actions (no job description etc), and accomplishments.
