Great tool for MBA applicants
, April 19, 2011
This review is from: 65 Successful Harvard Business School Application Essays, Second Edition: With Analysis by the Staff of The Harbus, the Harvard Business School Newspaper (Paperback)
I didn't apply to Harvard, so I can't comment on whether this book can help you get in there. But, since Harvard sets a very high bar for its applicants, you can be sure that reading this will help you set a higher standard for yourself.
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.
