- Wondering about Chicago’s Powerpoint question? BW’s Alison Damast interviewed Rose Martinelli, associate dean for student recruitment at The University of Chicago’s Graduate School of Business, about that very question in the new BW Getting In blog. Here is an excerpt:
The [powerpoint slides] that stood out were from the students who showed a side of themselves that wasn’t in the rest of their application, Martinelli said. "You could tell when someone figured out how to work with the ambiguity and really embraced that, rather than saying, ‘I’m going to play it safe and regurgitate what is in my application already.’"
Hint: Every essay — not just the powerpoint or creative ones — should show "a side of [you] that wasn’t in the rest of their application."
- Social Networking and MBA Admissions. The Wall St. Journal surveys the MBA social networking scene in "Internet Gives MBA Schools Global Reach." MBA forums, chats, Facebook, blogs all provide you with great ways to learn about the different schools. There is no shortage of information. Perhaps there’s even a glut.
