I was reading some blogs the other day when I came across this fascinating post called My MBA Essay Gauntlet on the Random Wok blog. Mark, the blog’s owner, is planning on applying to Haas, Wharton, UCLA, Ross, Stanford and Harvard. After analyzing all the essay questions for these 6 schools, Mark realized that he’d need to write 29 essays and 13,400 words if he wrote all required and optional essays!
Of course, meeting the word requirements is not the most important thing. Rather, you need to write a killer set of essays that both tells your personal story and speaks to your audience, which can be quite different at each school. In order to help you get the inside scoop on what the top business schools are looking for, Beat The GMAT is proud to announce the Write Like An Expert Series – a 9-part online video workshop series where admissions experts will help you learn what each of the top business schools are looking for.
