INTRODUCTION It’s never easy to write a book. This was especially the case with this one. Perhaps because I was already established as someone who writes about busi- ness schools (my first book was The Princeton Review’s Best Business Schools ), I thought that writing a companion book would be relatively uncomplicated. Where my first book had several chapters on how to put together a win- ning application, this book would elaborate on that theme by focusing solely on the essay portion of the application process.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
