Description


“Applicants looking for the competitive edge in getting accepted at the business school of their choice may want to peruse this book.” –Security Traders Handbook

Every year, thousands apply for a finite number of places in business schools. With similar grades, backgrounds, and goals, sometimes the only thing that can make an applicant stand out is the application essay. It’s the best chance you have to shine and tip the balance in your favor.

Essays That Worked for Business Schools shows that the best essays are brief, sincere, and personal. Some are off the wall, some are bold, all are unique to their creator. One applicant writes about starting his own airline. Another tells about the corruption in his job as a defense contractor. And a third reflects on his license plate. From the thousands submitted each year, the forty essays in this book were considered some of the best by admissions officers at the nation’s top business schools. As this collection demonstrates, with creativity and effort you can turn almost any topic into an effective, successful essay for your business school application.
