The “aha” moment that led us to launch MBA Prep School was that the majority of MBA candidates are investing countless hours preparing for the GMAT, but they are not prepared for the rest of the MBA application, namely the essays, resume, recommendation letters, application form, and interviews.
This website shares the proven principles and practices we developed at MBA Prep School to help our clients earn acceptance letters to the world’s most selective business schools. Prepare to be Accepted!™, conveys a sense of optimism that an acceptance letter to a top-tier business school is within your reach, but make no mistake, creating an outstanding application is incredibly demanding — you must prepare to be accepted.
In the past, you would have had to hire an admission consultant and pay thousands of dollars for access to the methods and tools they have developed for creating exceptional applications. This website will introduce you to our secrets.
Some number of books have been written about applying to business school. Moreover, on the web, you will find helpful tips and well-meaning pointers about how to get into a good school. But, until now, no one has provided a start-to-finish guide for generating a breakthrough application. The MBA Prep Steps™ program contained here was developed by a team of experienced MBA admissions consultants from elite MBA programs, like the Harvard Business School. Our powerful, easy-to-follow approach for building an outstanding application in just 8-12 weeks combines all of the activities of applying for an MBA with the insights we use to help our clients create applications that lead to acceptance letters.
We have divided the Prep Steps into weekly assignments. Follow the MBA Prep Steps™ project work plan to keep pace with all of your application activities. The sections and chapters in each section correspond to the MBA Prep Steps™ themselves. We recommend that you complete the exercises in each section before moving on to the next section. If you follow this plan diligently, you won’t just have learned how to create an outstanding application, you will have created one!
Every one of the experts who contributed ideas to this content would tell you the same thing: the applicants who succeed in the admissions process are the ones who devoted themselves completely to creating their absolute best applications. They weren’t simply handed an acceptance letter, they prepared to achieve their goal, they worked tirelessly, and they earned one. Creating a competitive application for a top-tier MBA program isn’t easy, but with MBA Prep School as your guide, you will have the knowledge and tools you need to succeed.
Good luck and Prepare to Be Accepted™!
