As a Re-applicant, is it necessary to explain a change in short-term goals - Management consulting in a MBB firm (last year) to strategy planning role within my pre-MBA firm (this year). The nature of work is similar to an extent . Long term remains same.

Do I need to explicitly explain this in the Re-application essay, (or even the Optional Essay) ? Especially for schools such as Yale which has 200 word Re-application essay, and the focus is on improved candidacy.

Absolutely! If you change your goals then you definitely need to explain what led to the change! Otherwise how would they know? This is good to put into an optional /reapplicant essay depending on the school.

Good luck!

Best,
