I have been placed on the waiting list of Tepper MBA 05 admission. I have two friends who are current MBA students at Tepper and I would like them to write me letters of support.
Can you advise on what the content of letter should be? In addition to emphasizing how much I want to attend the school and how a good fit I am with the school's philosophy?
My background is engineering...4-yr experience @ Intel and an average GMAT 670..a 3.52 GPA and two bachelor degrees: ECON and EE.
Thanks in advnace.
You have the right idea in terms of content for the letters and seeking them. Here are a couple of articles I wrote on wait-list strategy and tactics and they answer your questions.
"5 Keys to Unlock the Waitlist Lock"
In addition, I am just about finished with a special report/ebook 9 Mistakes You Don't Want to Make on an MBA Waitlist
. It should be ready in one to two weeks. If you (or anyone else) are interested in being notified when it is available, please send an e-mail to email@example.com
