In the past 48 hours, Columbia Business School, the Stanford Graduate School of Business and Harvard Business School (HBS) have all released their MBA application essay questions, kicking off the new admissions season. As HBS Director of Admissions and Financial Aid Dee Leopold mentioned in a blog post, she had just finished sending out some Round 3 decisions as she made the questions for the coming year public. We imagine that several other schools will release their questions shortly – after all, no admissions director wants to give applicants the chance to start others’ applications instead of their own.
As is our tradition, we will be releasing our essay analysis pieces shortly. Stay tuned to the mbaMission blog for our suggestions on how to approach each top business school’s essay prompts.
