I was planning on having a pretty detailed outline for my recommenders to help them answer the questions. :shock: How are you guys managing this?

From Dr. Shel (Shelly Watts), http://www.mbaadmit.com, email: info@mbaadmit.com



Hi,

As of 2016-2017, these were the questions. They have remained the same for years. I can update this as soon as the 2017-2018 Consortium recommendations come out, but I don’t think you will see a drastic change, if any change at all.

Please note that the word limit is 1000 characters for each of the four questions asked, not 1000 words each. One thousand characters, which includes spaces, is approximately 160-180 words. That is not much content!

We at MBA Admit.com work a lot with Consortium candidates since we offer special Consortium pricing packages. Last year, all of our Consortium candidates gained admission at their target Consortium schools with scholarship. What we have found useful when getting your recommendations written is to make sure your writers are concise and pack the responses full of great information! Stress the most important characteristics - no room for rambling or fluff!

Consortium Recommendation Questions 2016 2017

1. How long have you known the applicant and under what circumstances? * 1000 characters

3. What weaknesses do you think may affect the candidate's performance in graduate business studies and in a management career? * 1000 characters

4. Please make any additional comments which you think will help in assessing the candidacy of the applicant. * 1000 characters

Using the qualities listed below, how would you rate the applicant in comparison with other candidates you have known who have applied for graduate study in business/management? Please check one for each trait. OPTIONS ARE: 1. Outstanding, 2. Very Good, 3. Average, 4. Below Average and 5. Unable to Judge

These aren't the questions the mission recommender responds to are they? I know the school application recommenders answer these, but aren't they different prompts for the mission recommender?
Thanks.

Hi guys,

Does anyone know what the mission recommender is asked when they are contacted by the Consortium? I want my recommender to really talk me up and I'd hate for him to get called cold.

Thanks,
