I’ve noticed schools have fields for base/bonus comp. I’m a bit worried because when I last switched jobs I joined a multinational and a large part of my comp is stock. In fact my salary actually went down! Is there any way to note this on the app?

Most schools will have a text box for notes like this so I would make sure to highlight there. Also, if there is any other relevant info on why you took a lower salary it probably makes sense to share that as well, especially if there were reasons outside of taking stock in lieu of salary

Hi NycEngineer,

Most applications will give you space to put in any specific comments pertaining to your compensation. Should that not be available, you must address this issue in the additional info essay/optional essay. Be sure to highlight the exact salary break up and your reasons for taking up the new job (despite the fall in real compensation) :)

Hope this helps!

All the best :)
