Okay gang, today we're gonna talk about road trips. We have been working through the weekend for a change, and read a TON of boring MBA apps. J term stuff, European school stuff...and all these folks are soooo focused on work.
Work, work, work. Yaaaawn.
What about something...personal? Something about your personal quest for soul seeking? What about the time that you found yourself, while on a roadtrip harvesting Kiwi Fruits in Guam?
Schools dont accept PROFILES gang, they accept PEOPLE. You need to describe your JOURNEY. You need to describe what you are PASSIONATE about. Stanford is the only school that asks it point blank, but if you arent inserting that piece into ALL of your apps...you're doing it wrong.
So think back to that road trip that you took. Think about the most important moments in your life--even if they took place while bent over rice paddies in your uncle's uncle's farm.
THAT is what makes applicants into PEOPLE, and not just profiles.
Happy Memorial Day my friends.
