Hello...does anyone find any frustration with the fact that we cannot see the recommendation letter questions being sent to our professional recommenders? I was planning on having a pretty detailed outline for my recommenders to help them answer the questions. How are you guys managing this?

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!

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,
