SECRETS TO GETTING INTO BUSINESS SCHOOL helps candidates develop the skills and mindset needed to prepare a first-class business school application. Secrets to Getting into Business School was formerly titled 88 Great MBA Application Tips and Strategies to Get You into a Top Business School, and the material contained within, created and compiled by the author, originally served as the course manual for Kaplan Hong Kong's "Getting into Business School" course. It is based on a simple but powerful observation: Applicants who apply successfully to business school master of 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.
