BOOKMARKED
I've been reading Montauk's highly recommended (at least on this site) MBA application book and he mentions asking current MBA students for a resumé book.

Do people actually do this?

It seems that there are some privacy issues with this but even if the names and addresses were blacked out, don't the schools usually sell these books? So, why would students give them out for free? I've been in contact with a few students at the schools that I'm looking to apply to, so I could ask them.

But I was wondering first if other people here have asked current students for resumé books and if so, have they asked students at Columbia, Booth, Stern or Cornell, and if so, were they successful, and if so would they mind PMing me the books? =) I promise I won't distribute.

I've seem readily available resume books at some of the top school's websites. You just need to search for them.

I've listed some below. It's not the ones you've requested, but it'll give you an idea of the type of admitted students.

Wharton's Resume Book: http://realestate.wharton.upenn.edu/res ... d78de5c223

Thanks for the links asimov. I guess I should have expanded my search to schools that I'm not applying to. Those are helpful.

I still wouldn't mind seeing resumé books for the schools that I'm applying to, preferably books for students looking to work in Investment Management.

Columbia CIMA

Booth IMG

Cornell (I couldn't find a link to an IMC specific resumé book)

A good Stern book was easy to find on Google. I didn't post it here because I'm not sure if it's okay to distribute since I found it through Google and not Stern's site.

If anyone has the books for those clubs I would appreciate it very much if you wouldn't mind PMing me. I could send a good Stern book in exchange. =) Otherwise, I guess I'll be the guinea pig and ask current students if they wouldn't mind sending me a copy.
