Hello.

I am a full-time MBA applicant for 2013 intake.
I have a question regarding the reference form.

The file I uploaded is the reference form HKUST put on its website.

My question is if I need to ask my recommenders to fill out those "open comments".

Is it better to fill out all of the "open comments" ? (There are eight criteria like the ones shown in the file I uploaded)

Or is it better to fill out some of the "open comments" that show my strength.

Or is it ok to leave them out and just fill out the question after them.
(There is only one question that is asking about an applicant with 100 word limit.)

I am really confused...pleasee help me!!!!!

Thank you for your answer in advance.

Heya

If i were you, I would use entire space given to me albeit logical

Use extra comments space to mention real life examples where you demonstrated the specific strength

e.g. open comment for communication skills - XYZ is analytical by nature, and his/her reports were always data packed yet simple to follow. I nominated XYZ to represent my region at our planning meets.

Please dont use these exact words, this is just an example

Hope this helps

Thanks
