4 Things NOT To Do On Your MBA Essay
While GMAT scores, undergraduate GPA and work experience can play a pivotal role in your MBA application, one must not underestimate the importance of an application essay. It cannot be stressed enough that an essay can either make or break your application and thus your acceptance into the university. Here are 4 tips, for things NOT to do or say in your essay, to help you use your essay as an opportunity rather than a burden:
1) Do NOT boast about your high school achievements: while past records can be helpful at times, filling up your essay with your great experiences as high school prefect or sports captain is not very relevant, as admissions' officers would expect more current achievements.
2) Do not write an essay that does not answer the question: most university essays are often supposed to be based on either a prompt or question given by the university. While you are allowed some freedom, try not to stray too far. As long as you focus on the basic theme and stick to it, you should be good to go.
