What would you answer to the question above which is asking you for specific reasons to want to get a Harvard MBA?

How would your answer change with regards to other top programs, i.e. Why a Wharton MBA, or why an MIT MBA?

I would love to get some thoughts back!

Cheers!

Only you can answer that. I would say that your story should be consistent across schools. You don't want to be in the position of interviewing with three schools and trying to remember what you told which school about why you want an MBA...your best bet is to find that one genuine answer and stick to it.

Completely agree with schroedes. the best answer here is one that will connect with YOUR personal reasons and your personal story, and link up with your goals, and people you know at the schools etc. etc.
