All,

I am filling out the other questions that normally get asked on an MBA application.

eg Why did you leave this job.
Who have you consulted about studying at the school? How did they respond? etc

These sections do not have a word limit on this particular application. The application also has 6 essays. So obviously I do not want to write more essays, just like they don't want to read them.

How many words do people devote to such fields? 100 a good number?

I kept my responses as short and clear as possible.

I think my comments about researching the school was 3 or 4 lines.

My job descriptions were two lines.

My reason for leaving a job was one line.

Note, I didn't skimp on these sections. I put enough detail into each so that the point I wanted to get across was clear. However, I didn't see a need to write a certain number of words.

I tend to have one set of answers for everything and I keep it short. The reason is that the lengths on these questions vary from school to school. Therefore it is good to fit it to a minimum length such that one set works for all (or as many as possible).

thanks BSD. Looks like the short and sweet 2/3-liners will be it then!
