Hi all,

Anyone know where we can see a few sample essays for Harvard's essay question this year?

"As we review your application, what more would you like us to know as we consider your candidacy for the Harvard Business School MBA Program? (no word limit)"

The Harbus's book unfortunately focuses on last year's question, which is obviously different from this year's, but they've asked this before so surely these sample essays exist somewhere.

I've read "65 Successful HBS Aplication Essays". It is a collection of essays on several topics which as a whole provide some insight. And the last chapter shows 10 essays on. The question : "what other information do you believe would be helpful to the Board in understanding you better and in considering your application."

Anyone else has a suggestion on this matter!?

Thanks!

There should be an an additional older version available for purchase. I believe it is either 2014 or 2015 intake where the essay question was the same as this year's.

I'm confused. Is this a joke or just SPAM?

There's an HBS essay in Admissionado's 50 MBA Essays That Worked (free download via Gmatclub — should show up in the "Events & Promotions" banner).
