A Treasure Trove of Tools and Tips to Help You Build Your Best Business School Application

GAME PLAN FOR 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 50-plus 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 résumés; and extracurricular presentations showing how candidates present their awards and recognition, community service, collegiate activities, and hobbies and interests.

Read this book and gain an insider’s understanding of all MBA application strategies in order to:
*Anticipate the likely reasons for acceptance and rejection at the most competitive business schools
*Understand the interplay of both quantitative and qualitative admissions components
*Write compelling admissions essays
*Present a powerful employment record
*Obtain detailed letters of recommendation
*Maximize your ability to answer interview questions with insightfulness and confidence
*Personalize your record of extracurricular involvement

Author’s bio: Brandon Royal (CPA, MBA) is an award-winning educational author and a graduate of the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business. This book represents, in part, his distilled experience gained from having developed and taught MBA admissions courses for Kaplan Educational Centers in Hong Kong and from having conducted hundreds of hours of individual tutoring sessions that helped scores of applicants build superior applications and achieve acceptance at the world’s leading business schools.

“In my 15 years running MBA admissions operations at four top schools, I have never reviewed a more helpful admissions manual. It is a must for all serious MBA candidates.”
—Dr. Steven DeKrey, President, Asian Institute of Management; former GMAT Committee Chair, Graduate Management Admission Council

4.0 von 5 Sternen Gives clear answers for difficult questions but has trade offs 16. August 2010
Von GMAT Club (Expert) - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I am the founder of GMAT Club, online MBA community. 10% of the incoming class at top business schools this year will be GMAT Club members. Here are my thoughts about the book:

The book does a good job at giving clear answers to tough quesitons (those that usually don't get them). However, in that it also gets a bit simplistic. For example the trade off between GPA/GMAT/Essays/etc - I like the chat but not sure that's the case in every/most schools.

In comparison to The Best Business Schools' Admissions Secrets, it actually has 100 secrets (though the author calls them tips in the book), but still there is 100 of them.

The first portion of the book is written in a Q&A format, which I like - you can find the answers to the questions that bug you, skip the ones you don't care about, and discover new ones you have not even though of.

Most of the book is focused on the MBA essays and rightly so. It has a number of sample essays but they seem to be dated. The length is very long and that's not representative of the latest cuts to the word count many schools implemented in recent years.

There are a few things that could be improved:
1. This book does not have a strong central theme; instead it has a selection of tips/secrets. Would be nice to wrap them all around a theme/strategy.
2. Would be great to have some quotes from admissions officers in addition to Steve DeKrey (HKUST's dean)

Bottom Line: Set your expectations right: this book is a collection of admissions tips; it won't do the work for you - you will still have to apply the tips and figure out your story & strategy. You will probably need another book (that has more basics and takes you to a certain level) to formulate a strategy, plan things out, etc. As with any other book, expect to do quite a bit of research about your target schools.

Let me know if any questions about this book - I reply to PM's.
