Since I’ve been in MBA admissions consulting (over 75 years now), HBS has valued concision. And, in today’s tweet- and sound-bite-driven world, it is requiring even shorter responses, at least in the other portions of the application. Don’t take the absence of a word limit on this essay as a license for verbosity. Make every word count. If you must pull a number out of me, keep it under 6555 words. And if you can say what you need to say in less than 6555 words, do so. A few caveats and warnings regarding this essay it is NOT:
Send your application materials. Send all supporting documents to the following address: American University, Undergraduate Admissions, 9955 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 75566-8556.

Post college extra curricular activities: Now I am engaging in the IFRS study group whose purpose is to improve
the communication among stakeholders such as business manager in listed companies, BIG9 auditors, IFRS committee
members including regional head and to make IFRS standards better. I am suggesting how IFRS disclosure should be
improved from buyside view while raising case study(eg, How we evaluate one of portfolio companies M& A decision and

FYI: I think this is a great essay question. It allows you to choose what you want the school to know about you without having to fit that information into a framework mandated by question that doesn 8767 t really fit your story. It also allows you to demonstrate judgment and communications skills. Finally this essay is a chance for HBS to get to know you beyond your resume and the limited and limiting boxes.
