Some of you may think I am obsessed with videos about Harvard Business School. Although we are just getting started in video, Accepted already posted one video with tips on HBS’ MBA application, and is now posting its second. But let’s face it, it’s Hahvaaad.
In any case, in my reviews of HBS 1 essays, I am frequently struck by the monotony and shallowness of the responses. In the video below I suggest an alternative approach that will differentiate those of you who use it and hopefully encourage you to think more deeply about those three key achievements.
My apologies for the closeness to the deadline of this post. I don’t expect all of you who have written, edited, edited again, and proofed your Harvard essays to trash your current HBS 1. I am posting this video for those of you who aren’t near completing the essay for your round 2 submission — yes there are a few — and for round 3 applicants. And if course if HBS uses this question again, there is always next year.
