MBA News: Business School Admissions Essays

Last week, mbaMission Founder and President Jeremy Shinewald spoke to U.S. News & World Report about writing standout business school admissions essays. He addressed the common misconception that admissions committees are looking for something very specific and that admissions officers are withholding admissions “secrets.” Jeremy also discussed the time and effort necessary to create compelling essays and warned against submitting generic essays that can apply to multiple schools. We are pleased to see that such a distinguished publication sought our opinion—joining BusinessWeek, Crain’s and more.
