School Information [#permalink] New post 30 Apr 2011, 00:34
I am in the process of trying to get information about my schools, to get a list of ones I want to apply to and also to help with essays, however I am currently stuck here in Iraq, and it gets difficult when the internet craps the bed. Maybe I missed it, but is there a post on here, or a resource, that helps "summarize" a school.

For instance I know Harvard uses the "case study" method very heavily. They are known for their entrepreneurship. They have a large class (~900). I have read about their culture, employment opportunities, etc. I am hoping to apply to ~6 schools and I was just wondering how you guys found the information, or if you found a good starting point where all this information is condensed in one place. Perhaps there is a thread on each school where people give their perspective, and I am dumb, and missed it.

No worries. Here's the best I could find (but I bet there are more):

the-b-school-application-103/

Look on the right hand side and keep scrolling down. You should find GMAT Club fora / guides to the Top ~20 schools right there. Based on what I've seen, that should get you plenty of info on at least those.

BTW You are not dumb. You are presumably serving our country honorably.
