Live Essay Writing Workshop, presented by Admissionado


Sigh. The MBA Application essays. Who thought it was a good idea to ask people to write 2000 words before they even get INTO school? Turns out, it doesn’t matter, because someone did… and now you have to come up with the most compelling and memorable essays about leadership that you can. And then do it again for every school you apply to.

It’s not easy, but this upcoming event should help. Submit your MBA Application essay to have an opportunity to have it reviewed for free by the team at Admissionado. Three essays will be selected, and if you are one of the lucky ones, you will have the opportunity to go through your essay with Phillip Herring (admissions expert and CBS MBA) in a live session. You will need to be OK with sharing your essay with attendees (don’t worry – we’ll keep your name/private info out of it), and available and online at the time of the event to chat it up with Phillip. Even if you aren’t selected, listen in, because there will still be plenty of essay advice to go around.

Submit your essay to lauren@admissionado.com by Monday, December 3. You will find out if you are selected by Wednesday, December 5. Then join the live event on Thursday, December 6 at 6pm PST. Register Now [FREE!]

Does anyone know whether HBS's new field program has impacted Stanford's application number?

I've been wondering about that too... Maybe there's just not too many Europeans on this forum? At any rate, I am pretty sure that most invites did go out already, including to Europe (unfortunately).

Yeah... and since it's December now, unless people here early next week, chances are slim to none that more people will be invited. :/

I am hanging the gloves on Stanford. Hopefully other schools come through. For some reason I always thought that HBS was harder to get in than Stanford. I know Stanford has a lower acceptance rate but i just thought it was due to small size more than anything.

What makes you say that Stanford is harder than HBS?

I don't think you can compare response rates from candidates between the two schools because they conduct the application process very differently.

Well, maybe that Stanford accepts half the percentage that Harvard does and still maintains a higher GPA and GMAT.....Easy enough.

What awards have you earned/received since college? You should focus on crafting your own story in Stanford's (or any school's) application.

Also, I don't think anybody would have stats on awards/honors that Indian applicants report; neither would have we have that information for any other nationality's applicants.

Ah - okay. I thought you were saying this based only on response rates in the forum, which didn't quite add up for me. Agree on actual stats but I still wonder if that has to do with smaller class size. In either case - both are fantastic schools.

Most definitely has to do with class size...Stanford's is fairly small for top programs, yet they still attract far more applicants than any program near their size. If HBS cut their class in half they would still likely get 7,000+ apps and have a similar admit % to GSB. However, GSB has the smaller class and a crazy high # of apps so they can still pick and choose their students a little more closely. Both are great programs and both admit quite different students (with some overlap)....I myself got dinged at HBS but was interviewed @ GSB (+ Haas & Anderson) and am hoping for an admit.

R1-ers awaiting decisions and R2/R3 applicants planning ahead -- here's some info about application notifications and decision notifications. NOTE: Based on this, it does not sound like any decisions will be released, via phone or otherwise, before the decision notification date (for R1 that's December 12). Good luck everyone!

When you submit your application via Hobson's ApplyYourself, you will receive an immediate message thanking you for your submission. Your application status in Hobson's ApplyYourself shows as "Submitted." Approximately two weeks after the application deadline, all applications are marked "Under Review." You will be contacted via email by our office if you are invited to interview; your application status will remain "Under Review." On the decision notification date, you will receive an email that the decision on your application has been posted. You will be directed to log into your Hobson's ApplyYourself account, where you will see your decision letter.

100% agree. I'm actually in the opposite boat. Eternal wait for Stanford, but interviewed at HBS (+Darden & LBS). Hoping for an invite from HBS. In hind-sight, I can definitely see that my style and therefore essays were much more HBS than Stanford material. Only wish I had realized that before submitting!
