Excellent Harvard Business School admissions essay - Business Insider
But at least this year, the only HBS admissions essay, one of the mandatory application components, seems pretty straightforward. The prompt reads: "As we review your application, what more would you like us to know as we consider your candidacy for the Harvard Business School MBA program?"
A number of schools have recently trimmed the length of essays.
Since many business school admissions officers encourage applicants to “write less, say more,” it is important to communicate your background and career ambitions in a concise and clear way. The essay gives admissions officers an opportunity to learn who you are, where you're going, what you have done and why their school is right for you. Use this small space to give the admissions officers a deeper sense of who you are by answering the prompt with brevity.
