One of the most important parts of the M.B.A. admissions process is the student essay. Yet many students hurt their chances by not putting enough effort into it. After all, this is perhaps the best ways to differentiate yourself from all the other students applying for admission.
Dan Rogers, who is now a first-year M.B.A. student at Harvard Business School, offers some advice on writing a winning essay. He graduated from Birmingham University in the U.K. with a first class honors degree in Economics and Political Science and subsequently worked as a strategy consultant for four years. Besides Harvard, he was accepted by a number of other major M.B.A. programs.
