Where to start?

If you are decided to engage in the MBA applications' adventure, here is where you should start: by reading "How To Get Into the Top MBA Programs" by Richard Montauk.

This book really lists everything you should know about the MBA application process and even how to make the most out of your MBA experience.

Obviously it is more focused on US MBAs but it provides nevertheless some good insights on some top european MBAs such as INSEAD, LBS or HEC.
Reading this book will help you:
  • Clarify why you may want to do a MBA
  • Select among the different programs
  • Make the most out of your profile
  • Market yourself and address the good angle
  • Differentiate yourself from the crowd
  • Write your application essays
  • Find good and self-motivated recommenders
  • Prepare for the interview
  • Handle waitlist and schools choice
  • Optimize your MBA time
The very good thing is that the book provides extensive amount of essay examples from successful applicants and comments from several schools adcoms.

In a nutshell I greatly recommend this book.
