Hey,

Those who are going to apply to top MBA programs (like Wharton) should check out this link. It is a very short video where Wharton's Admission Director talks about passion of an MBA applicant. It will give you a sense of what they are looking for, if you still haven't figured it out.

Thanks for the video.

Regarding the Wharton view, I think most applicants are going to be hesitant about deviating from the norm no matter how encouraging that video was.

Maybe you should use a different browser...or you don't have a required plug-in. I have just clicked on it and it worked.

Yes, and that's why those who are hesitant from deviating from the norm more likely than not "blend in" with the mass of other applicants, and therefore have far less of a chance of getting in.

MBA types are by nature more risk averse than the general business population -- so top b-schools would rather take the more "adventurous" folks within an already risk averse pool.

As I've always said before -- build a life, not a resume. Unfortunately, too many MBA applicants limit themselves to building a resume (i.e. "what will look good to [adcoms, employers, my parents]") - which makes them more cookie cutter and expendable, whether it's in b-school admissions, recruiting, or anything else.
