Editorial Reviews

Renee Rhoten
There were tips on what schools looked for as well as actual essays from students accepted into their respective programs. After reading those essays and understanding what was needed to get into school, I was pumped! I soon realized that the stuffy dissertations I had written about my life and about why I wanted an MBA would not do. I had to be creative, add a lot more color, and show the admissions committee who Renee really was and what she was all about. It only took a few hours to kick out the initial draft. And a couple of weeks in total to complete my essays after I had gotten started. -- BusinessWeek

Read an Excerpt

Business applicants should not be afraid to go out on a limb and be themselves - even when that means incorporating humor or being a little bit controversial. They are so often concerned with making the correct impression that they edit out anything that would help their essay stand out. They submit a 'safe' essay that is, in reality, sterile, monotonous, and deadly boring.
