Admitted: An Interactive Workbook for Getting Into a Top MBA Program
Betsy Massar MBA
Francesca Di Meglio
The business school application scares most people. Sure, to outsiders, it looks simple enough - fill out a few forms, take a standardized test, send transcripts, answer some essay questions, get recommendations, and voila, you're in. If only.
As you consider the prospect of business school, you know it is not simple at all. Even deciding whether to apply, or to what schools you should apply is a challenge. And there are no easy answers. Unlike other guides to MBA admissions, Admitted gives you a framework for applying and helps you organize your thoughts so that you can tell your authentic story in the MBA application. It helps you navigate the process, inspired by real-life stories of those who have been there before (and succeeded!). As you explore and try on different MBA programs for size, Admitted serves as your guide. Instead of telling you what school fits, the exercises in the book encourage and challenge you to ask the important questions that will help you decide what fits and importantly, what does not. The workbook also has exercises for you to dissect your work history and create compelling stories about what you've achieved.
Admitted not only helps you structure your campaign, it encourages you and gives you guidelines to explore your aspirations, experience, work style, emotional intelligence, and place in the world.
"Betsy Massar's book gives MBA applicants a much-needed framework for submitting a stellar application. With this book, you'll be able to tell stories about yourself that show off your leadership and emotional intelligence and gain the insight to build a well-rounded, holistic application."
- Leila Pirnia, Founder, MBA Podcaster
"This is the definitive guide to getting into a top MBA program! The book's organized, easy-to-read format is exactly what prospective business students need to prepare themselves for admission. I highly recommend it!"
- Janet Hanson, CEO and Founder, 85 Broads
"If more potential MBA students knew about the tools in Admitted, they'd be able to write much stronger essays. Betsy's witty, insightful book will guide you through the thinking process that will help you get into a top business school."
