Mission Admission: Look for Personalized Recommendations [#permalink]

New post 23 Aug 2016, 06:00
FROM mbaMission Blog: Mission Admission: Look for Personalized Recommendations
Mission Admission is a series of MBA admission tips; a new one is posted each Tuesday.

If your supervisor is writing your business school recommendation and you are having trouble ensuring that he/she is putting the proper thought and effort into your letter, you are not alone. Because of this asymmetry of power, a junior employee can only do so much to compel his/her supervisor to commit the necessary time and write thoughtfully. So, before you designate your supervisor as a recommender, you must first perceive how committed this person really is to helping you with your business school candidacy. In particular, your recommender needs to understand that using a single template to create identical letters for multiple business schools is not okay and that each letter must be personalized and each MBA program’s questions must be answered using specific examples.

If your recommender intends to simply write a single letter and force it to “fit” the school’s questions or to attach a standard letter to the end of the school’s recommendation form (for example, including it in the question “Is there anything else that you think the committee should know about the candidate?”), then he/she could be doing you a disservice. By neglecting to put the proper time and effort into your letter, your recommender is sending a very clear message to the admissions committee: “I don’t really care about this candidate.”

If you cannot convince your recommender to write a personalized letter or to respond to your target school’s individual questions using specific examples, look elsewhere. A well-written personalized letter from an interested party is always far better than a poorly written letter from your supervisor.

William Boudling

Business school deans are more than administrative figureheads. Their character and leadership often reflect an MBA program’s unique culture and sense of community. Periodically, we profile the dean of a top-ranking program. Today, we focus on William Boulding from the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University.

In the fall of 2011, William Boulding became dean of Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business. Boulding began teaching at Fuqua in 1984 and served as the business program’s deputy dean before being appointed to a shortened two-year term as dean (a full term is five years) upon the previous dean’s departure. Boulding was then recommended by an international search committee in early 2013 to continue his deanship for a further five years. He has received several distinctions for his teaching in the areas of management, marketing, and strategy, including the school’s 1989 Outstanding Teacher Award and the 1997 NationsBank Faculty Award. A member of the search committee stated in a 2013 article in Duke’s student newspaper, The Chronicle, that Boulding’s vision for the school would “address globalization with more innovation and modernization in the classrooms, while also focusing on stabilizing the school’s budget.” Another search committee member noted in the article that Boulding “has the whole package, plus he knows Fuqua and Duke intimately.”

In a 2012 Forbes interview, Boulding described the type of students that attend Fuqua by highlighting the collaborative principles encompassed by “Team Fuqua,” saying, “Increasingly, so called ‘leaders’ seem to fight for narrow self-interest around issues and ideas. At the same time, more than ever before, answers to problems, solutions to challenges, innovation, and the creation of value comes through collaboration and co-creation.… Our students have a burning ambition to make a difference in the lives of others.” Boulding also explained in a 2013 interview with Bloomberg Businessweek the high rate of success for Fuqua graduates in finding jobs: “The reason they’re [companies are] hiring Fuqua students comes back to what we produce and who we attract, and that’s people who understand how to co-create and take advantage of a team’s potential. It’s people who are personally humble, tremendously ambitious, and have no sense of entitlement.”

FROM mbaMission Blog: In Other News… London Business School’s Next Dean, Harvard’s Online Finance Program, and New Hope for MBA Tuition Tax Deductions
François Ortalo-Magné

The business school world is constantly buzzing with change and innovation. In addition to our regular news posts, we briefly touch on a few notable stories from this dynamic field in one roundup.

  • François Ortalo-Magné, who is currently serving as the dean of the Wisconsin School of Business at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, has been appointed the next dean of London Business School. The school announced recently that Ortalo-Magné will succeed its current dean, Sir Andrew Likierman, in August 2017. Likierman will return to his previous position on the school’s faculty.
  • Harvard Business School (HBS) is launching a new finance certificate program on its online learning platform, HBX. The six-week program, titled “HBX Finance: Leading with Finance,” was designed by HBS professor Mihir A. Desai and will allow participants—who are expected to either have at least a decade of professional experience and an undergraduate degree or have completed the HBX CORe (Credential of Readiness)—to approach financial literacy via interactive online tools and multimedia case studies. Applications for the first installment of the program, which begins in November, are open until October 19.
  • It might soon become easier to claim MBA tuition as a tax deduction. According to a recent lawsuit between MBA Alex Kopaigora and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the IRS declined Kopaigora’s requests to deduct tuition expenses for an executive MBA program. A judge, however, ruled in his favor and allowed him to deduct some of his tuition. The case was the first to allow tax deductions for an executive MBA program, raising hopes for current and future MBA and executive MBA students. “This case is a big win for all MBA students,” Columbia Business School professor and tax expert Robert Willens commented to the Wall Street Journal.

Beyond the MBA Classroom: Bar of the Week at Haas [#permalink]

FROM mbaMission Blog: Beyond the MBA Classroom: Bar of the Week at Haas
When you select an MBA program, you are not just choosing your learning environment but are also committing to becoming part of a community. Each Thursday, we offer a window into life “beyond the MBA classroom” at a top business school.

Image

Thursdays at the University of California (UC), Berkeley, Haas School of Business have a set social agenda—this is when students congregate at the current “Bar of the Week,” as selected each week by the vice president of social (an elected student position within the school’s MBA Association) from the variety of options located in San Francisco and Berkeley. A student described the event on the school’s Web site as “an opportunity to kick back, stop thinking about school for an hour or two, and drink a beer or two.” Often, Bar of the Week—which can reportedly attract upward of 200 students—is hosted by a student club and held at a venue of that club’s choosing. For example, Q@Haas (the school’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender professional and social club) has in the past hosted a Bar of the Week in San Francisco’s famous Castro District.

For in-depth descriptions of social and community activities at UC Berkeley Haas and 15 other top MBA programs, check out the mbaMission Insider’s Guides.

FROM mbaMission Blog: Diamonds in the Rough: Innovative Opportunities at the Merage School of Business at the University of California, Irvine
MBA applicants can get carried away with rankings. In this series, we profile amazing programs at business schools that are typically ranked outside the top 15.

Image

Thanks to its proximity to the Tech Coast, the Paul Merage School of Business at the University of California, Irvine, offers significant opportunities for students with an eye toward innovative business. “Whether it’s fashion, interactive entertainment, real estate, medical or biotech,” states the school’s site, “Orange County is where these industries flourish.” Indeed, an emphasis on innovation and business pioneering is built directly into what Merage calls its “visionary curriculum,” supplementing conventional business disciplines with three core, cross-disciplinary areas: Strategic Innovation, Information Technology, and Analytic Decision Making.

In addition, several of Merage’s special course offerings and programs showcase the school’s commitment to putting students in contact with the rapidly shifting face of business. The “EDGE” course, for example, which can be taken during students’ second year of study, offers a notable opportunity to gain cutting-edge insight into the relationship between business trends, globalization, and technology. Similarly, through the school’s MBA Applied Consulting Project, students have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience with current business practices by working directly with locally based global companies. Merage students can also participate each year in the university-wide Business Plan Competition, whose winner claims $15K in funding for his/her proposed start-up venture.

Friday Factoid: Earn a Sustainability Certificate at MIT Sloan [#permalink]

FROM mbaMission Blog: Friday Factoid: Earn a Sustainability Certificate at MIT Sloan
Sustainability is at the heart of MIT Sloan’s nonprofit/social entrepreneurship curriculum. In 2007, the school launched the Sustainability Initiative (formerly titled the Initiative for Sustainable Business and Society), whose goal is “to inspire change by engaging people in open dialogue around sustainability issues and challenging them to consider their own values related to social justice, care for future generations, and the flourishing of life,” according to its Web site. The initiative serves as an umbrella for the many components that fall under its purview, including the “Strategies for Sustainable Business” lab course, the “System Dynamics” course, the Sustainability Lunch Series, and an internship program.

In 2010, Sloan announced its third specialty certificate option, the Sustainability Certificate. Open to any master’s level MIT student as an add-on to an existing degree program, the offering, according to a 2010 MIT Newsroom article, “views sustainability as a function of the interdependent dynamics of economic, societal, and environmental systems, where success overall is influenced by success across all areas and not upon a single factor.” In addition to receiving the certificate along with their MBA, students who pursue it will receive access to Summer Sustainability Internships and alumni events.

For more information on other defining characteristics of the MBA program at MIT Sloan or one of 15 other top business schools, please check out the mbaMission Insider’s Guides.

MBA Admissions Myths Destroyed: I Am Too Old to Get into Business Scho [#permalink]

New post 27 Aug 2016, 07:00
FROM mbaMission Blog: MBA Admissions Myths Destroyed: I Am Too Old to Get into Business School!
We at mbaMission often receive panicked phone calls from applicants in their late twenties, asking if they are too old to get into business school. Why?

Image

For much of the last decade, several top schools have declared their openness to younger candidates and have even been courting them. Harvard Business School has welcomed “direct-admits” (those entering immediately after completing their undergraduate degrees) and started the 2+2 Program to encourage undergraduates to consider deferred acceptance. Chicago Booth followed suit, launching the Chicago Booth Scholars Program, granting deferred admission to University of Chicago seniors, and various Early Career Candidate programs to attract students with one to three years of experience. Although the Stanford Graduate School of Business does not publish the average age of its students, it does state that its students’ median work experience is four years. So, if you are an “older” candidate at 27, 28, 29, or—dare we even write—30, should you even bother applying?

First of all, it is worth noting that not all schools are on the bandwagon to admit younger candidates. Tuck, for example, states that “in general” it does not accept students with fewer than two years of work experience. The average amount of work experience at Darden is currently listed as four years, although the school has reported its range in the past as one to ten years—meaning that it typically does not accept direct-admits. Michigan Ross requires that students complete their degree before applying, meaning that seniors are ineligible.

However, if you are focused on a school that is open to younger candidates, you should still think logically about this situation: you cannot get any younger, so you can either self-select out of the application process or let the admissions committees read your applications and make their own decisions. Further, applicants should not mistake an openness to younger candidates as some sort of aversion to older candidates. If you have something special to offer, you are still in the running—there is no secret cutoff that immediately eliminates you from the applicant pool.

As we have written before, the schools are governed by self-interest. They want the best candidates out there! If you are among the best, your age will not be an obstacle.

GMAT Impact: The Role of Confusion in Your GMAT Prep [#permalink]

Show Tags

New post 28 Aug 2016, 07:00
FROM mbaMission Blog: GMAT Impact: The Role of Confusion in Your GMAT Prep
Image
With regard to the GMAT, raw intellectual horsepower helps, but it is not everything. In this blog series, Manhattan Prep’s Stacey Koprince teaches you how to perform at your best on test day by using some common sense.

That seems like it should be a typo. Maybe I meant “Confucius,” the Chinese teacher and philosopher?

No, I really do mean confusion. Journalist Annie Murphy Paul contributed a post to NPR’s Mind/Shift blog: Why Confusion Can Be a Good Thing.

Why Is Confusion Good?

Murphy Paul supports her thesis with an important point: When we do not know the “right” way to do something, we open up our minds to many potential paths—and sometimes an alternate potential path is better than the “official” path.

When a test like the GMAT is concerned, the discomfort inherent in figuring out that best path allows us to determine why a certain approach is preferable. That knowledge, in turn, helps us to know when we can reuse a certain line of thinking or solution process on a different (but similar) question in the future.

How Can I Use Confusion to Help My Prep?

Murphy Paul offers three suggestions (the following quotes are from the article; the rest is just me):

(1) “Expose yourself to confusing material.”

On the GMAT, you have no choice: you are going to be exposing yourself to confusing material every day. So I will tweak Murphy Paul’s suggestion slightly: embrace the confusion. Rather than feeling annoyed or frustrated when that feeling of confusion creeps in, tell yourself: okay, I am on track here. I am going to figure this out—and, when I do, I am going to remember it, because my current confusion is actually going to help me remember better once I do know what I am doing!

(2) “Withhold the answers from yourself.”

Sometimes looking at the answer immediately is appropriate. If you are doing drill sets and you want to make sure that you learn from one problem before trying the next, then check the solution immediately.

Other times, though, you are not doing yourself a favor by jumping right to the answer. In particular, when you know that you don’t know… then do not look at the answer right away! Struggle with it for a while first.

Look stuff up in your strategy guides/books. Ask a friend or search a forum. Spend as much time as you want, then pick an answer—even if it is just a guess—and have a rationale for why you eliminated the answers that you eliminated. If possible, also have a rationale for why you chose the answer that you did.

Got that? Okay, now go look at the answer. But wait! Do not read the solution yet—just look at the answer first. Maybe you will want to go look at the problem again because

  • You were sure you got it right but you didn’t; can you find the mistake?
  • You guessed and got lucky; was that pure dumb luck or were you actually able to increase your odds via a strong educated guess? Alternatively, maybe you knew more than you thought you did!
  • You did get it wrong but knowledge of the correct answer prompts an idea about how to do or think about the problem.
(3) “Test yourself before you learn.”

This approach lets us know what we know and, more importantly, what we don’t know going into our study of that lesson or chapter, and that can actually help us to learn more effectively.

I suggest starting a new chapter with a few of the problems listed as practice or drills at the end of the chapter. If those go well, then try a lower-numbered Official Guide problem. Keep going until you hit a couple of substantial roadblocks. Then dive into the chapter with a serious curiosity to figure out how to get around those roadblocks!

Monday Morning Essay Tip: Employ Active Verbs [#permalink]

FROM mbaMission Blog: Monday Morning Essay Tip: Employ Active Verbs
Anyone who has ever written an email that has been misunderstood—let alone an MBA application essay—is no doubt aware of the subtleties of language and the nuances that can change a message’s meaning. Indeed, you can enliven a basic sentence by simply choosing more active verbs.

For example, consider the verb “earn.” By using “earn” rather than a more passive verb in the following examples, we can alter the meaning and impact of each sentence. Suddenly, you are in control—suddenly you worked hard and, as a result, accomplished great things.

Passive/poor example: “I was promoted from junior to senior analyst.”

Active/good example: “I earned a promotion from junior to senior analyst.”

Passive/poor example: “After being awarded my MBA, I will be able to….”

Active/good example: “After earning my MBA, I will be able to….”

Once you have finished your application essays, review them to see how often you can replace certain words with “earn” or a similar verb—such as “achieve,” “gain,” “attain”—that denotes action on your part.

Evan Brandoff and Zubin Teherani, Co-Founders of LeagueSide

Today, many aspiring MBAs and MBA graduates want to join start-ups or launch such companies themselves. Is entrepreneurship as exciting as it seems? Is it really for you? mbaMission Founder Jeremy Shinewald has teamed up with Venture for America and CBS Interactive to launch Smart People Should Build Things: The Venture for America Podcast. Each week, Shinewald interviews another entrepreneur so you can hear the gritty stories of their ups and downs on the road to success.

This podcast episode welcomes two guests: Evan Brandoff and Zubin Teherani, co-founders of LeagueSide, which connects youth sports leagues with suitable sponsors. Brandoff and Teherani first crossed paths at a Venture for America training camp, but the idea for LeagueSide did not come to Brandoff until he attended a local basketball game and realized the connection companies could make with families by sponsoring youth sports teams.

Mission Admission: Keep Your Online Presence in Check [#permalink]

Mission Admission is a series of MBA admission tips; a new one is posted each Tuesday.

Image

These days, as social media pervades most of our lives, we need to take special care to keep our private lives just that—private! Our partners at Kaplan Test Prep found that 26% of college admissions officers check applicants’ Facebook profiles or other social networking pages to learn more about them—both the good and the bad. And although MBA admissions committees probably have better things to do than troll the Internet for your private information, you can never truly know whether an alumnus/alumna or a student interviewer will take a few minutes to find out a little more about you online.

Although your pages on these sites are likely innocuous, you must still ensure that access to those pages is limited so that you can control who sees them—and can thereby have more control over your interviewer’s perception of you. You do not want your interviewer’s first impression to be drawn from your vacation photos but rather from your confident demeanor as you walk in the door and shake his/her hand. So, take a moment and make sure that only those you invite to your pages can use them to learn about you and your life.

Professor Profiles: Sankaran Venkataraman, UVA’s Darden School [#permalink]

FROM mbaMission Blog: Professor Profiles: Sankaran Venkataraman, UVA’s Darden School
Many MBA applicants feel that they are purchasing a brand when they choose a business school. However, the educational experience you will have is what is crucial to your future, and no one will affect your education more than your professors. Each Wednesday, we profile a standout professor as identified by students. Today, we focus on Sankaran Venkataraman from the University of Virginia Darden School of Business.

Image

Sankaran Venkataraman—who is known around the campus of the University of Virginia’s (UVA’s) Darden School of Business as simply “Venkat”—is an internationally recognized expert on entrepreneurship. He is the MasterCard Professor of Business Administration at Darden and the senior associate dean for faculty and research. He has edited the Journal of Business Venturing and consulted with the U.S. Department of Commerce on promoting entrepreneurship globally. He is also a coauthor of The Innovation Journey (Oxford University Press, 2008) and coeditor of Entrepreneurship in Emerging Regions Around the World: Theory, Evidence and Implications (Edward Elgar Publishing, 2008). Venkat earned one of Darden’s awards for outstanding faculty in 2008 and is generally considered one of the school’s most popular professors. In 2010, Venkat earned the Academy of Management’s Decade Award for a paper published ten years earlier that was judged to have had the greatest impact on scholarship in the fields of management and organizations.

A second-year student we interviewed described Venkat as “very analytical, very smart, and teaching on the top edge of marketing analytics.” Added a recent alumnus, “He will help much more than you would expect a professor to help.” Another alumnus with whom we spoke recounted meeting Venkat at an Indian Affairs party only a few weeks into his first year: “He [Venkat] quickly realized that I did not know who he was and told me that he was a student in another section. I led him around, introducing him to other new students until I eventually realized that he was pulling my leg.”

Beyond the MBA Classroom: Formal Balls at Kellogg [#permalink]

FROM mbaMission Blog: Beyond the MBA Classroom: Formal Balls at Kellogg
When you select an MBA program, you are not just choosing your learning environment but are also committing to becoming part of a community. Each Thursday, we offer a window into life “beyond the MBA classroom” at a top business school.

Image

Students at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management certainly have no shortage of events on their social calendars. A series of student-run formal balls peppers the first-year calendar, including the Fall Ball, the Charity Auction Ball, and the Casino Ball. When mbaMission interviewed students about their social calendar, many had trouble placing the names and themes of the balls, as they had been to all of them, and the different events had seemingly fused into a single memory. In short, once the school year begins, the average Kellogg student can expect to wear a tuxedo or ball gown more frequently than he/she might typically be accustomed to.

Diamonds in the Rough: Ohio State’s Fisher College of Business [#permalink]

FROM mbaMission Blog: Diamonds in the Rough: Ohio State’s Fisher College of Business
MBA applicants can get carried away with rankings. In this series, we profile amazing programs at business schools that are typically ranked outside the top 15.

Image

Despite the size of its parent institution, the Fisher College of Business at Ohio State University boasts a relatively intimate classroom experience—with approximately 110–150 students in each incoming full-time MBA class—and a close-knit community. Fisher students consequently benefit from the school’s wider university network (more than 500,000 alumni) and its proximity to major companies based both in Columbus and throughout the Midwest. Bloomberg Businessweek ranked Fisher 39th in its list of top MBA programs in 2015.

The Fisher curriculum consists of a core sequence spanning the first year of the program and offers nine disciplines in which students can major (including a “Make Your Own Major” option). A particularly noteworthy highlight of Fisher’s MBA curriculum is its experiential Leadership Development program, which spans the full two years. The first program of its kind to be offered at a business school, Leadership Development begins with a compulsory two-week pre-term immersion course, in which students attend workshops, bond with teammates, perform mock interviews, and formulate their professional development goals. During the course of the academic year, the program organizes various workshops and assessments—in addition to connecting students with corporate mentors who offer career guidance and networking opportunities. Also among the offerings is a speaker series that has welcomed such business leaders as the chairman of Harley-Davidson and the founder and CEO of KRUEGER+CO Consulting, Inc.

FROM mbaMission Blog: Friday Factoid: Columbia’s Program for Financial Studies
Already well known as a finance powerhouse, Columbia Business School (CBS) stepped up its finance game in 2010 with the establishment of the Program for Financial Studies. This umbrella initiative connects faculty who approach financial studies from a variety of disciplines with students, alumni, and external organizations. The program’s main goals are to support research, enhance the Columbia finance curriculum and related resources for students, offer opportunities within professional organizations, and facilitate the exchange of ideas between Columbia students and faculty and members of the external finance community. Finance wonks will enjoy the program’s finance case studies, including “Sunrise Inc.: A Tale of Two Term Sheets,” written by Professor Morten Sorensen, and “Apple, Inc. in 2009: Seeking Sustained Corporate Growth,” written by Professor David Ross.

MBA Admissions Myths Destroyed: I Should Quit My Job for the GMAT [#permalink]

New post 03 Sep 2016, 06:01
FROM mbaMission Blog: MBA Admissions Myths Destroyed: I Should Quit My Job for the GMAT
Image
The GMAT is the sole piece of data that is truly consistent from one candidate to another. Therefore, many MBA applicants get carried away and place undue emphasis on it, when the test is only one of several important aspects of an application. In extreme cases, some applicants consider quitting their jobs to focus on the GMAT full time—not a great idea!

Why is it not ideal to quit your job to improve your GMAT score? Quite simply, it sends the message that you cannot manage what many other MBA candidates can manage quite well. In your application, you will need to account for any time off; if you honestly note that you quit your job to study for the GMAT, you will place yourself at a relative disadvantage to others who have proved that they can manage work, study, and possibly volunteer work simultaneously. By taking time off, you will send the unintended message that you cannot achieve what many do unless you have an uneven playing field. This is not the message you want to send your target academic institution, which wants to be sure that you can handle the academic course load, a job hunt, community commitments, and more.

Regardless of the admissions committees’ perceptions of taking time off, we believe a calm and methodical approach is your best bet. By furthering your career as you study, you will have a sense of balance in your life. On test day, you will have a far better chance of keeping a level head, ensuring that you will do your best—which, of course, was the point in the first place.

GMAT Impact: Lifting Your GMAT Score [#permalink]

Show Tags

New post 04 Sep 2016, 06:01
FROM mbaMission Blog: GMAT Impact: Lifting Your GMAT Score
With regard to the GMAT, raw intellectual horsepower helps, but it is not everything. In this blog series Manhattan Prep’s Stacey Koprince teaches you how to perform at your best on test day by using some common sense.

How do you maximize your score on the GMAT? Sure, you have to learn to answer harder questions correctly—but that is not actually enough.

Let us stipulate a couple of things. First, whenever I say “easier” or “harder” in this post, I am referring to easier or harder for you, the reader; everything here is relative to your current scoring level and your desire to lift that level to whatever your goal score is. In other words, this works at every level and for every goal.

Second, as a general rule, you take (on average) more time to answer harder questions than you take to answer easier ones.

Okay, so what does that mean? Most people do not spend much time studying the things that they generally already know how to do; they do not analyze questions that they answered correctly unless there was some other issue (such as spending too much time).

That is a mistake—and not just because we can still learn things from questions that we answer correctly. More importantly, if you want to lift your score, then the questions that you find of medium difficulty today need to turn into questions that you find easier in the future.

Think about how the test works: if you are scoring in the 80th percentile, then 65th percentile questions are generally fairly easy for you, the 75th to 85th range is medium, and 90th percentile questions are too hard. If you want to lift your score to 90th percentile, sure, you have to learn how to tackle those harder questions. At the same time, the 75th to 80th percentile questions have to become your “easier” question pool—“medium” level will no longer be good enough!

Remember when I said that we generally take more time to answer the harder questions? That is okay, within reason (say, up to 30 seconds beyond the average for that question type). To have that extra time, though, you have got to be saving time on the easier questions. Those questions that are medium for you right now—you have actually got to be able to do them more quickly for them to turn into easier questions in the future.

Beyond all of that, there is yet another benefit. Shortcuts or alternate solution methods that you figure out for those easier and medium questions can often be used on harder questions as well. You will actually learn how to tackle some of the harder stuff by getting even better at the easier and medium stuff.

If you are going for a really high score (720+), then I will leave you with a couple of “challenge” exercises. Answer this math question and this Critical Reasoning question in one minute (or less). Good luck!

Monday Morning Essay Tip: Multidimensional Brainstorming, Part 1 [#permalink]

New post 05 Sep 2016, 06:00
FROM mbaMission Blog: Monday Morning Essay Tip: Multidimensional Brainstorming, Part 1
We at mbaMission always tell candidates, “You cannot turn a bad idea into a good essay.” We insist on taking our clients through a lengthy brainstorming process—starting with a thorough questionnaire—to discover the stories that make them distinct. As you uncover your stories, you should consider them from as many different angles as possible. Doing so will not only help ensure that you understand the various “weapons in your arsenal,” but will also provide you with maximum flexibility, considering that MBA admissions committees ask questions that vary dramatically from school to school.

For example, an experience coaching a baseball team at an underfunded high school may have multiple dimensions, such as the following:

  • Creatively motivating an underachieving team and changing attitudes, despite losses
  • Initiating and leading fund-raising efforts so that each player could afford proper equipment
  • Mentoring a struggling player and seeing an improvement in his or her on-field performance
  • Helping a player deal with a family issue off the field
  • Recruiting other coaches and then working to improve a team’s on-field performance
These are just a few of the stories that could be gleaned through brainstorming, proving that considering your experiences from various angles is beneficial and will help you discover multiple unique approaches to your essays.

Mission Admission: Visit Your Target Business Schools [#permalink]

Show Tags

New post 06 Sep 2016, 06:01
FROM mbaMission Blog: Mission Admission: Visit Your Target Business Schools
Mission Admission is a series of MBA admission tips; a new one is posted each Tuesday.

Every year, we get many inquiries from MBA candidates who have just started the application process and are curious about whether they should invest the time and resources needed to visit their target programs. Is visiting really worth the effort? Will doing so impress the admissions committee(s)? Of course, one thing to keep in mind is that a class visit has tremendous relevance beyond the formal admissions process—it is a chance for you to give the school a thorough “test drive.” You probably would not invest $30,000 in a car without driving it first, would you? So why would you commit to spending two years of your life, many years as an alumnus/alumna, and hundreds of thousands of dollars in direct and opportunity costs without first knowing what you are getting?

We do not think that you need to visit at all costs, however. If you have limited funds or time, you should not deplete your resources by visiting. You have many other ways of getting to know your target schools without traveling to campus, such as Web sites, podcasts, conversations with alumni, and outreach events. However, if you do have the time and money, we strongly recommend that you travel to your target schools and gain that firsthand experience—a brief trip could pay a lifetime of dividends.
