Getting into Business School is based on a simple but powerful observation: Applicants who apply successfully to business school master a finite number of the most important application skills and strategies. What are these skills and strategies? The answer to this question is the basis of this book. Readers will find 100 easy-to-follow tips and a complete range of sample documents, including 60 sample application essays covering all ten major MBA essays types, as well as exhibits highlighting relevant application documents: sample letters of recommendation with critiques; an interview evaluation form complete with interviewer’s comments; an interview thank-you note; sample employment records and professionally formatted resumes; and extracurricular presentations showing how candidates present their awards and recognition, community service, collegiate activities, and hobbies and interests.

“In my 15 years running MBA admissions operations at four top schools, I have never reviewed a more helpful admissions manual.
