“In Your MBA Application, Be Authentic” (Stacy Blackman, “US News & World Report”)

Stacy Blackman provides excellent advice on how to be authentic and impressive in your business school application essays. Simply writing about your passion, however, is not enough to make a great essay. Avoid going into too much detail or being too obvious about how the skills developed while climbing a mountain will make you a persistent entrepreneur. Try to let a single, well-chosen anecdote speak for itself. The same advice applies for essays addressing your weaknesses: discussing your failure is an excellent way to demonstrate self-awareness and the desire to improve yourself, which are critical for getting the most out of your MBA.
