I read this handbook with an interest in its advice re: MBA applications. Readers will find that much of the advice is also applicable to other types of academic applications. In cases where the advice is specific to what MBA admissions committees are looking for (i.e., to qualities that are specific to MBA applicants), this MBA-specificity is made clear in the handbook -- so that anyone who is applying to, say medical school or a psychology or English grad program (or even applying to an undergraduate school), would be able to ignore the MBA-specific advice and use the more general (and extremely helpful!) support. In addition to being a clear guide to the MBA admissions process, this is a useful overview of admissions in general, complete with realistic insights.
The book includes specific timetables and exercises: not annoying or overwhelming -- only the sort of timetables that you would ideally create for yourself and jot onto your own calendar; and the "exercises" are short and intuitive.
Just. So. Good!!!
How to Apply for an MBA did this by breaking the application into its 7 elements: Application Form, Reference Letters, Essays, Resume, Test Scores, Academic Transcripts, and Interview. The book then provided me concrete "how to" instructions for making the individual pieces of the application showcase my values, goals, and strengths in such a way that my final application package will be consistant, and present my "best story" to an MBA admissions officer.
This book has already added focus and structure to my application preparations, so it has my recommendation.
Surrounded by resources - the internet, friends, and colleagues - ready to offer more than enough advice, I initially thought I had the application process under control. Still I found the book to be incredibly helpful and it is one of the best guides that I have come across.
The prescribed MBA Prep Steps program in the book covers the A-Z of the MBA application journey, from preparing to apply, to the school selection process, to the essays and admissions interviews. The guide (including the case studies in the book) is concise, well-written, and packed with actionable information.
I have already recommended "How to Apply for an MBA" to several friends and will continue to do so. Without a doubt, two thumbs up!
