Appearing as the Perfect Candidate for your MBA Program
Many people make the mistake of thinking that the interview with your MBA school is the most important part of distinguishing yourself as the perfect MBA program candidate. However, without the perfect application, you may never get that interview. For that reason, Toqquz.Bulaq Gulzari offers these tips on putting together the perfect MBA application:
Have a really solid and complete application file. List down all your qualifications and your work experience in a way that complements them. Do NOT leave any part of the application form blank.
The essay that is required with the application should be written sincerely and should be so compelling that the person reviewing your application finds it tough to put your essay down.
Prepare for your GMAT test beforehand so as to have a high GMAT score in your application form.
The letters of recommendation with your application should stand out from the others.
Remember that only as little as 20% of all applications received by MBA schools, are actually considered further for the next stage in the admissions process. So make sure that you do the best possible job with your application so that it goes on top of the ���in' pile and does not get relegated to the ���out' pile.
If you are lucky enough to get an interview, keep these tips in mind. Be sincere in your answers -- remember that these people do this every day and will know when you're just saying what they want to hear. Additionally, stress team work. MBA programs as well as the field of business in general rely heavily on a person's ability to work with people.
