Hi guys,

How are you tacking the video introduction? The prompt says introduce yourself to your future classmates...and in reality that's likely a formal recap of professional background and a one or two personal touch points. BUT - the adcom has already seen our resume transcripts and cover letter. Seems like a waste of another platform to just give a recap.

What is the approach you're taking with this?

I actually did it the other way round. One-two lines covering my professional background. The rest was more of who I am as a person and my passions. :) Hope this helps!

Hah I see - good to know! Amazing you managed to squeeze that into a minute, maybe I'm just talking too slow

Or maybe I'm boring with only one or two passions worth talking about :P

I think what they're looking for is a genuine representation of who you are, whoever that is. I only spent a line talking about my work, but if your work is a huge part of who you are, then I think it makes sense to talk more about that!

I went with a few words that describe who I am, an interesting fact, my passions, why Sloan, and then what I wanna do next!

Obviously not too much depth, and maybe a sentence on each, but I felt like it captured all the extra stuff omitted from my cover letter and app in general.

Hope it helps, m8!

I went all personal. Talked about two passions that are not work related. They already have my resume and career aspirations. Since Sloan didn't have the extracurricular section, I used this - and a modified resume - to talk about my time outside of work.
