    This book works 100%!!! A MUST READ if youre serious about applying to business school!

    I was accepted to NYU Stern with a GMAT score below 80% of their applicants. I owe a lot of that to this book. Instead of focusing on retaking the test, I focused on the application, and every bit of the advice in this book paid off. I would suggest reading the entire thing, not just what relates to your particular school especially when it comes to writing the essays.

    ABC of Getting the MBA Admissions Edge : Officially Supported by McKinsey and Co. and Goldman Sachs

    I was recommended this book by three different people, all of whom are current MBA students (2 at HBS, 1 at Columbia). They described it as the most relevant and insightful review of the top business schools, with an excellent approach to the admissions process. Though there are plenty of sample essays (some of which are reassuringly simple), the key message seems to be to know the schools to which you are applying, and there is far more information about the structure and personality of the MBA programs than I have found anywhere else. I strongly recommend this book to anyone thinking about doing an MBA.

    ABC of Getting the MBA Admissions Edge : Officially Supported by McKinsey and Co. and Goldman Sachs

    This book was invaluable to me. Let's put it this way: I wasn't sure that I had what is took to get admitted! I found the whole admissions process real competitive and being accepted to Harvard and Wharton was more like a dream than a possible reality. A GMAT teacher recommands me to buy this book. "Quite expensive but you won't regret it". good advice since I followed most of the advice especially for the schools I was targeting. For a lot of schools (Harvard, Berkeley, Columbia, Stanford, Chicago.....), it displays anything you need to know ...and to say..to get admitted. authors analyse essays of each school...i t demystifies the questions, the traps, some good answers and loads of examples. The book is quite exhaustive: more than 600 pages but it is well organized, so it makes it pretty user-friendly. Even if you do not feel that you can get in into the best business schools, IT IS NOT AS DIFFICULT as most people think, all you need is FAITH and a GOOD METHOD!

    Not Worth the Money

    Almost everything in this book is regurgitated information. Anyone seriously applying to these top tier schools has already seen this info on each school's website or in popular magazines. The GMAT section can at best be supplementary to other study guides. For the money, I expected a lot more.

    Made the difference, and I got 'The Edge'

    Many schools have suggested application numbers up by over 40% this year, and I was fearful of becoming another reject statistic. After being turned down at HBS and Stanford in the second round (Jan '02) I was recommended this book 'Getting the MBA Admissions Edge' and it has made an incredible difference. With so much school analysis, and advice for your essays including lots of sample essays, the book gives some real insight and structure to your application. I have since heard from a Wharton alum that their school really wants to see how well you have researched their program, and if that understanding is implicit in your essays. Well now I'm set to join Wharton in the Fall (totally psyched) and the book made a huge difference.

    ABC of Getting the MBA Admissions Edge : Officially Supported by McKinsey and Co. and Goldman Sachs

    I must admit I needed a helping hand with my application. The Essays, GMAT, letters of recommendation... sometimes seems like an endless process where you never know if youre wasting your time since you have no guarantee of being accepted (especially at schools where it's getting ridiculously competitive). this book has guided me through the whole process. First, the book gives you the confidence you need to keep faith. It outlines loads of testimonials of successul candidates (harvard, MIT, Berkeley, Columbia, kellogg...). When you read their stories, you feel that they were like you: people who had accomplished some stuff but obviously had doubts and weaknesses. Then, the game is how you present yourself and how you write succesful essays. The key is that you should adapt your essays to the various school profiles. The authors have done an outstanding work on the top schools. There are about 50 pages per school outlining the differences between all the schools. If you want to be admitted to Stanford, you obviously don't say the same thing in your essays as if you want to be admitted to Columbia. The great thing about this book is that you get insider information. The other books I bought are just too general, stuff like 'smile on the day of your interview'....this is more specific. You read this book, and the profiles of the schools you want to apply to, and you feel that the game is easier than you thought.

    ABC of Getting the MBA Admissions Edge : Officially Supported by McKinsey and Co. and Goldman Sachs

    I have bought about 6 books on MBA preparation, attended an intensive GMAT test prep. center, taken private tuition for my essays, asked friends who got into Harvard, Berkeley and Wharton for their advice... but the bottom line is, the most helpful advice has come from 'Getting the MBA Admissions Edge'. This book is worth every cent as it really gives you faith in yourself that you can make it. It helps you understand and play upon your strengths and weaknesses. One part in particular is just dynamite - for each school (Harvard, Berkeley, Stanford, MIT, NYU...) they analyze typical essay questions (what the school wants to get out of the question, what the do's and the don't's are, sample essays from admitted candidates..). You've even got interviews with each of the Director of Admissions as well as insider views from successful candidates of each school reviewed. Basically it feels like you have access to the 'mysterious black box' of the admissions process: it gives you the motivation (even if you have not scored 750+ at GMAT) and resolution you need to get you home and dry... and eventually you receive this letter that tells you that you have been admitted to your dream MBA!'
