Learning so much about every school was difficult - it required campus visits, web searches, and contact with current students.
While no publication could ever completely replace those experiences, the Clear Admit guide comes awfully close.
What did you learn from your most spectacular failure?
(up to 200 words) While the topic of failure is a common one when it comes to MBA applications, the very tight word limit of this response makes this a relatively unusual task.
As you work on your Judge MBA essays and application, we encourage you to consider all of Clear Admit’s offerings: I want to tip my hat to the team at Clear Admit that put these guides together.
I'm a recent graduate of Wharton's MBA program and remain active in the admissions process (serving as an alumni interviewer to evaluate applicants).The Clear Admit School Guides are a unique learning resource.By bringing together student opinion, official statistics and original research, the London Business School Guide offers an authentic snapshot of life in our programme.While the adcom does allow for some ambiguity in one’s career plans, keep in mind that leaders are expected to be decisive and have vision, so we strongly recommend having a clear career plan from the outset.Especially given Judge’s one-year program, it will also be best to hit the ground running in terms of pursuing a career.I visited HBS three times and was certain that I acquired all the necessary information about the school.After reading the guide, it became clear that I was wrong!I can't tell you how important it is for applicants to show genuine enthusiasm for Wharton and I think the Clear Admit School Guide for Wharton captures many of the important details, as well as the spirit of the school.Purchasing the Clear Admit HBS School Guide was one of best decisions I made in the application process.That said, the essay is not binding for one’s career upon admission and the school does anticipate that candidates are looking for a change, as 94% of the recent class changed country, function or industry sector.Should candidates still be at a loss for a specific career path, responses to the final question should be kept brief, with broad reflections on how the skills acquired during the MBA could apply to an industry in general.
