Yeah I guess that would make a good testimonial, but unfortunately I wasn't paid.

I have a friend who is applying to b-school who I keep telling to check this site out and I don't know if he's just too lazy or what, but I mean the guy is clueless to the whole process. All he knows is what his application instructions say. If he spent any time on this forum asking opinions and advice he might have known that his "positioning" shouldn't have been, "Well I think business school could be good for me, but I don't really need an MBA that badly, so I'm just kind of applying to see what's out there." That's literally how he answered the "Why and MBA?" questions on all his apps.


I've always wondered how my essays would turn out if I never found this forum or bought Paul Bodine's book. It actually makes my stomach hurt thinking about it - they would just be god awful.

Rhyme,

I'll definitely keep you posted. And I would actually share many more of his mis-steps and boneheaded maneuvers in the process, but I'm afraid he might actually finally take my advice and check out this site and see me goofing on him.

All right, here's one little funny story to give you an idea. So HBS has an essay that asks for something like your "three greatest accomplishments." And he was thinking of including a couple of work accomplishments, and then for his third one he was going to talk about how he was the beer-pong champion at some college party. Because he thought this would show that he had a sense of humor. Which we all know is really what HBS is looking for, a bunch of really hilarious people.
