YOUR LIFE . . . IN 300 WORDS OR LESS
It's a daunting task. Even the most seasoned professionals find business school application essays to be among the hardest pieces they ever write. With a diverse pool of talented people applying to the nation's top schools from the most successful companies and prestigious undergraduate programs in the world, a simple biography detailing accomplishments and goals isn't enough. Applicants need clear and compelling arguments that grab admissions officers and absolutely refuse to let go.
To help them write the essays that get them accepted into Harvard or any of the country's other top programs, the staff of The Harbus---HBS's student newspaper---have updated and revised their collection of sixty-five actual application essays as well as their detailed analysis of them so that applicants will be able to:
* Avoid common pitfalls
* Play to their strengths
* Get their message across
Wherever they are applying, the advice and tested strategies in 65 Successful Harvard Business School Application Essays give business professionals and undergraduates the insider's knowledge to market themselves most effectively and truly own the process.
The Harbus is the official student newspaper of the Harvard Business School, the number-one business school in the country. This weekly has been providing the news to students, faculty, and alumni since 1937.
I started my MBA applications before buying this book, and I thought that overall I had some great essays. After reading this book, I realized that my essays were pretty much garbage, and started over. After you read some of the examples they give you, you can really see that each of the applicants has set themselves apart from the pack in some form or another.
Overall, I enjoyed this book and believe it directly contributed to me getting into my first choice business school. However, I still think that a potential business school applicant should still supplement this reading with other readings that are available out there.
