Hi guys,
I am applying to B-schools this fall. I am 3rd generation in the radio industry and am writing a book on my grandfather's career in broadcast. Studying his career and interviewing people he worked with has given me a MUCH better sense of the career path I want to take.

This is not just one of those "I'm writing a book that will never actually happen..." type of things. I've been working with an editor & have a publisher & printer lined up. I also have been working with a fundraiser to start a foundation in my grandfather's name that would launch in conjunction with the publication of the book. I know that I will be finished by the time I enter school, but do not think I will have all of this completed by the time applications are due.

I am currently doing other community service but nothing as meaningful as this project. I do think that it helps my overall story of being passionate about my industry and shows my committment to making a difference & giving back to the business community. It also shows that my work and community serviec relate to each other making my story a more cohesive unit. However, I'm wondering if it is appropriate to put an emphasis on this in my applications as it is not a completed project.

Thoughts? Suggestions?

I'd recommend placing a strong emphasis on this project. It is something that you clearly are passionate about, it ties to your career aspirations, has a community service bent, relates to your family and is completely unique to you. What else could you ask for?

This is the type of thing that will truly set you apart and should help make b-school a near-lock. Nice work. This should be on your resume, mentioned in essays, mentioned in interviews, etc.

Let us know how it turns out!

Hi,

I agree that this project is a great opportunity to show your passion for the subject and insight into your personality. My only concern is how it is connected to a specific MBA program.
