Um, that's a very vague question. Could you be more specific (something one needs to learn for essay writing too! ;) )?

If you want to know what types of essay questions there are, I highly recommend Montauk's "How to get into a Top Business School" or Paul Bodine's "Successful Business School Essays" books.

Does being ridiculously ridiculously good-looking offset a poor undergrad GPA??

Doesn't pimpin by definition entail working? I see it as a managerial role with a variety of direct reports and clients. It can really show your communication, negotiation, and marketing skills.

"pimping" and "no solid work experience" can not go in the same sentence!

This is the first time I have seen a Jewish bear and that too a pimp!!!

on another tangent - Israeli police will not arrest first time drug offenders. This fact makes my mind boggle. If the cops dont arrest first time drug offenders, how do they know when was the offender's first drug arrest?

A jewish bear pimp - shalom to that
