Editorial Reviews

Review

"Betsy Massar's book gives MBA applicants a much-needed framework for submitting a stellar application. With this book, you'll be able to tell stories about yourself that show off your leadership and emotional intelligence and gain the insight to build a well-rounded, holistic application."

- Leila Pirnia, Founder, MBA Podcaster

"This is the definitive guide to getting into a top MBA program! The book's organized, easy-to-read format is exactly what prospective business students need to prepare themselves for admission. I highly recommend it!"

- Janet Hanson, CEO and Founder, 85 Broads

"If more potential MBA students knew about the tools in Admitted, they'd be able to write much stronger essays. Betsy's witty, insightful book will guide you through the thinking process that will help you get into a top business school."

- Marie Highby, former member of the Stanford Graduate School of Business admission team

From the Back Cover

The business school application scares most people. Sure, to outsiders, it looks simple enough - fill out a few forms, take a standardized test, send transcripts, answer some essay questions, get recommendations, and voila, you're in. If only.

As you consider the prospect of business school, you know it is not simple at all. Even deciding whether to apply, or to what schools you should apply is a challenge. And there are no easy answers. Unlike other guides to MBA admissions, Admitted gives you a framework for applying and helps you organize your thoughts so that you can tell your authentic story in the MBA application. It helps you navigate the process, inspired by real-life stories of those who have been there before (and succeeded!). As you explore and try on different MBA programs for size, Admitted serves as your guide. Instead of telling you what school fits, the exercises in the book encourage and challenge you to ask the important questions that will help you decide what fits and importantly, what does not. The workbook also has exercises for you to dissect your work history and create compelling stories about what you've achieved.

Admitted not only helps you structure your campaign, it encourages you and gives you guidelines to explore your aspirations, experience, work style, emotional intelligence, and place in the world.

Format: Paperback
This workbook is the perfect tool to bring out the important parts of your application. It is well worth the time to work through the workouts and really write down your thoughts. For myself and for many, the hardest part of an application is identifying your strengths, weaknesses, and defining why you really want to go to school. The exercises and workouts in this book help you to do just this. The tools then help you understand how to use what you come up with in your application. For me, I was applying to a joint program (MBA and MA in Education Leadership), and the book helped me to tie the two programs together in order to write a convincing application essay and focus on the important things in my interview. At the end of using the book, I felt like I had a better understanding myself and why I had decided to go back to school. I recommend this to anyone and encourage you to purchase it early on and start using it, it can help you choose the perfect program, as well as help you be "Admitted" to that program.

For anyone considering business school - this is the book! I wish this book existed when I first started thinking about business school and trust me I have a library of barely thumbed through business school books. It offers great insight and to the point exercises that help you understand what you need to do and think about. I found the business school application process to be difficult to understand because a lot of the information of how to do things is not easily accessible unless you know someone who knows what to do. If you are considering making the leap, in the process, or know someone who is looking to go back - I recommend this book.

This book came at the perfect time for me as I am trying to redefine why I want to make the leap into business school and I as I work through the exercises I feel closer to that answer. Good luck!

Betsy's method got me into my dream school and long shot, Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley.

I know she has been putting together this workbook for a few years. I just read through and I can tell you, this publication is a comprehensive and refined outline of her proven method. The book will help you understand how you will stand out, which accomplishments are more impressive than you think and which accomplishments are less impressive than you think.

While you are dropping $70 on GMAT prep books (and a lot more on Kaplan...), set aside $25 for this tool. Test scores are only half the battle!
