Best of the Anecdotal MBA

Welcome to the Anecdotal MBA blog, where you'll find a unique perspective on the b-school admissions process from someone who has been through it.

There's a lot to read here, so I suggest you get started with the most popular post on this blog, The Essay Package that Stood Apart.  Then check out these five posts:
  1. How to rock the GMAT: It takes patience and lot of hard work. See how I raised my score by 140 points.
  2. What makes a good essay, quantified: Check out these graphs that highlight the key difference between the essays that got me in... and the ones that didn't.
  3. Why MBA?: Some criteria for deciding whether b-school will be worth the investment.
  4. MBA vs. EMBA: A tough decision, especially for applicants in their late 20s or early 30s. Here's how I weighed the issue.
  5. Tips on using an admissions consultant: Admissions consultants aren't cheap. Here's how to use them wisely (and here's how to use them ethically).
I hope you find this blog useful.  If there's anything you'd like to see added, just let me know in the comments.
