Unformatted text preview: Rookies and Aces Consulting Training Outsourcing Winning Strategies for Application to Global B.School Programs Dear Aspirant, In order to succeed in the MBA application process you will need to convince the admissions committee to choose you for their entering class. But to convince them, you first need to know your own story and what makes you special enough to be chosen. Thinking critically about your own story is Step One on the way to winning the admissions game. According to admissions officers, there are two critical questions you'll need to answer in detail and with passion in order to convince the committee to take a chance on you: 1. Why do you need an MBA? 2. Why should you be accepted to our MBA program? These are more difficult questions than they may appear. To answer them persuasively, you will have to do a lot of thinking about your past, present, and future (details follow). Once you have developed all your personal reasons for getting an MBA at your chosen schools, you need to turn to Step Two, getting to know your competition. The best way to win is to stand out from the crowd, which means you need to know what this crowd is like. Finally, Step Three, you will need to put together an application that will convince the admissions committee to choose you for their next MBA class. You need to persuade them, through your application materials, that you will be successful during your time at their school and even more successful after you graduate. Successful alumni increase the school’s prestige, which means the B.School can attract more high-quality faculty and students – resulting in better placements, an unending upward spiral. This manual will get you started on the path to building an impressive application. For further help with this challenging process, we recommend that you enroll in RnA’s essay, resume, and interview classes and take advantage of our customized personal Admission Consulting Program. Your counselor can guide you through the maze of the complex admissions process from organizing your essays all the way to sending your application in time to meet deadlines. Meanwhile, you should work through this manual to build a strong foundation that will support you throughout the entire MBA application process.

Though they may ask you these questions in different formats. 1. Why do you need an MBA ? 2. Why should you be accepted to our MBA program ? ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Business School Selection and Application Assistance Program, RnA programs help aspirants in Global B.School Admission process and GMAT preparation Call Dr. Sameer Sharma / Dr. Mansoor Agha at +91‐9891255295 Or mail us at mail@Rna.net.in Rookies and Aces Consulting Training Outsourcing 1. Why do you need an MBA? Both the MBA application process and the completion of the MBA degree program can be lengthy, arduous experiences that involve a significant mental, emotional and financial investment. To help you decide if you are ready to undertake this step in your career, you should think carefully about WHO YOU ARE and where you are going. As you think about these things, you will begin to form what we term as a "knowledge pyramid." If your ideas about your past, present and future are well thought-out, your knowledge pyramid will look like the one below. In this case, you are well prepared to begin your applications. The Knowledge Pyramid If you have a complete knowledge pyramid, you can easily answer the three questions below : Do you know how your past is a foundation for your future? Do you know what you want to achieve professionally? Do you know how an MBA will complete your preparation for your professional future? ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Business School Selection and Application Assistance Program, RnA programs help aspirants in Global B.School Admission process and GMAT preparation Call Dr. Sameer Sharma / Dr. Mansoor Agha at +91‐9891255295 Or mail us at mail@Rna.net.in Rookies and Aces Consulting Training Outsourcing A well‐developed Knowledge Pyramid illustrates the following about you: You know a lot about your past because you have thought over your experiences. You can easily answer questions about significant events in your past that have made you who you are today. You can explain how your past has prepared you to pursue your future goals. And you can speak eloquently about your present situation. You have developed plans and goals for your professional future. You not only have a general mission in life, but also have some specific ideas about what you want to be doing in your future career. You have also thought about the impact you want to make on the world. Your ideas are connected, and each step in your future will prepare you for the next one. You know exactly why an MBA is the best degree to prepare you for your professional future and why now is the best time to get it. You also know which MBA program and which Business schools best suit your needs and you are ready to tell them why. If all of this is true, then you are ready to begin working on your applications. If not, then read and follow the steps outlined on the next several pages. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Business School Selection and Application Assistance Program, RnA programs help aspirants in Global B.School Admission process and GMAT preparation Call Dr. Sameer Sharma / Dr. Mansoor Agha at +91‐9891255295 Or mail us at mail@Rna.net.in Rookies and Aces Consulting Training Outsourcing Know your future If your ideas about your future are unclear, as shown in the pyramid below, you need to do some serious thinking about your future before starting your applications. The main thing you need to develop is a future vision. What do you want to be doing in your future career? Will you stay in the same company or even the same career field? If not, what will you do? These are tough questions, but you need to form basic answers to them in order to get into an MBA program. Don't worry - you are not obligated to follow through on these exact plans. You are, however, expected to have well thought-out plans and reasonable-sounding goals. These qualities will help convince the admissions committee that you are a success-oriented person. Begin by reading the questions on the next page and writing down some possible answers. But don't feel satisfied with your current answers - good answers need time to develop, so keep thinking about these questions and write down ideas whenever they come to you. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Business School Selection and Application Assistance Program, RnA programs help aspirants in Global B.School Admission process and GMAT preparation Call Dr. Sameer Sharma / Dr. Mansoor Agha at +91‐9891255295 Or mail us at mail@Rna.net.in Rookies and Aces Consulting Training Outsourcing Let’s do some introspection: 1.

You also need to know your past. If your future is clear, but your past looks like the one below, you need to take some time to reflect on who you are and what has brought you to this point. You need to develop a good understanding of what skills, knowledge and experience you have gained that make you who you are as a professional today. What are these things and how will they help you in your future? Again, these are difficult questions. But knowing the answers is crucial to building an effective application package. Think about your life story so far - think about any unique or especially important experiences, either professional or personal, that you have had. Think about what skills and knowledge you have gained in your work, higher education, or extracurricular activities. Begin by answering the following questions: ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Business School Selection and Application Assistance Program, RnA programs help aspirants in Global B.School Admission process and GMAT preparation Call Dr. Sameer Sharma / Dr. Mansoor Agha at +91‐9891255295 Or mail us at mail@Rna.net.in Rookies and Aces Consulting Training Outsourcing How can you sell yourself to a B.School ? 1.

You need to think about which path is best to acquire these skills. Perhaps it makes sense to stay in your job for a few years or to start a new job to get some practical experience. On the other hand, perhaps an MBA program is the best way to acquire what you need. If so, how can an MBA program give you what you need, and which programs are the best for you? Take some time to give thoughtful answers to the questions that follow: ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Business School Selection and Application Assistance Program, RnA programs help aspirants in Global B.School Admission process and GMAT preparation Call Dr. Sameer Sharma / Dr. Mansoor Agha at +91‐9891255295 Or mail us at mail@Rna.net.in Rookies and Aces Consulting Training Outsourcing How can you re‐skill yourself 1.

Why should you be accepted to our MBA program? Once you have built a strong knowledge pyramid, you need to shift your perspective to that of the admissions committee and answer their second question. The admissions committee wants to know two things about you in answer to this question. First, they definitely want to be convinced that you will be a future success - both in the MBA program and in your career. They want to see that you have a combination of strengths that promises future success. Second, the admissions committee wants to be confident that their school is the right one for you. If you are not a good match for a school, you shouldn't be there, and the admissions committee knows this. So, choose your target schools carefully based on both your strengths and your needs, and then convince the admissions committee in your application that their program is right for you. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Business School Selection and Application Assistance Program, RnA programs help aspirants in Global B.School Admission process and GMAT preparation Call Dr. Sameer Sharma / Dr. Mansoor Agha at +91‐9891255295 Or mail us at mail@Rna.net.in Rookies and Aces Consulting Training Outsourcing Identify your Relevant Strengths Everyone has skills, knowledge and experience as well as a unique personality and a future vision.

This means that up to half the applicants are strong enough to be considered seriously for admission. You obviously want to be in this upper half of the applicant pool. Step One in this manual was designed to help you identify your strengths in order to be in this admissible group. But even if you are a very strong applicant, there is another challenge you must overcome in order to be selected for admission - demonstrating your distinctiveness. Once you have demonstrated your strengths, you will be part of a select, but still large, pool of candidates. From this pool admission officers will admit a small number of candidates, but different selection criteria will be used: admissions committees will turn their attention to applicants' uniqueness and their ability to contribute to the diversity of the class. Your challenge, then, is to show what makes you special - that is, your distinct selling point. In comparison to other strong candidates, what will make you stand out? You are competing against others who have many things in common with you. For example, many of your competitors may be from the same country and the same industry as you, or perhaps they are sponsored by their companies as you are. Many applicants from India have traveled, lived or worked abroad, and many of them graduated from top universities with high GPA's. This means that to stand out, you will have to differentiate yourself and develop a marketing plan based on this distinctiveness. Follow the steps outlined below to develop a distinct selling point to help you become one of the select applicants who really stands out from the crowd. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Business School Selection and Application Assistance Program, RnA programs help aspirants in Global B.School Admission process and GMAT preparation Call Dr. Sameer Sharma / Dr. Mansoor Agha at +91‐9891255295 Or mail us at mail@Rna.net.in Rookies and Aces Consulting Training Outsourcing Identify your distinct selling point Consider your strengths that you identified in the previous section of this manual, and try to identify your distinct selling point. For example, think about your experiences - what has been unusual? Think about your skills and knowledge - do you possess an impressively high level of skill or knowledge in one field? Or do you have a remarkably broad range of skills and knowledge? Is your uniqueness based on a combination of things or is there one special thing that makes you noticeable? Your selling point might be a dazzling accomplishment, an impressive job, a swift rise to your current position, an unusual innovation, or a powerful future plan. For example, were you the first in your company to make a certain kind of deal? Did you initiate a new product or service line? Do you already have a business plan and an investor to help you realize your novel business idea? Are you particularly well-rounded? Do you pursue many interests outside of work? Have you done an extraordinary amount of volunteer work? Write down your thoughts below about your selling point. If you are having trouble, make an appointment with a trained RnA counselor who can talk to you about your background and help you identify the most marketable aspects of yourself as an applicant. ___________________________________________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________________ To get the competitive edge Stand out from the crowd & Emphasize your uniqueness, not just your strength, ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Business School Selection and Application Assistance Program, RnA programs help aspirants in Global B.School Admission process and GMAT preparation Call Dr. Sameer Sharma / Dr. Mansoor Agha at +91‐9891255295 Or mail us at mail@Rna.net.in Rookies and Aces Consulting Training Outsourcing STEP THREE: Prepare a Winning Application Once you have built a strong knowledge pyramid and have identified your distinct selling point, you are ready to use the different components of the application package to sell yourself to the admissions committee. You want to show them that your strengths and your selling point make you the kind of person who is sure to be a future success. You can convincingly show your potential for future success by using the different parts of the application package wisely. The main components of the application that you have some control over are your resume, your essays, your recommendations and your interviews. Each of these components can be used in a slightly different way to present 5 critical aspects of you as a candidate: the skills, knowledge, and experience you have gained from your past, your vision of the future, and your personality traits. Resume Essay Recommendations Interviews Function of the Application Components: Each part of the application is ideally suited to highlight different aspects of you as an applicant : Resumes are the ideal place to focus on your past experiences and the excellence you demonstrated in the past. Essays are the best vehicle to communicate your vision and demonstrate your skills and knowledge. Interviews give you the opportunity to show off your winning personality and your English communication skill. Recommendations are able to address all aspects of you as an applicant, but from a different perspective. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Business School Selection and Application Assistance Program, RnA programs help aspirants in Global B.School Admission process and GMAT preparation Call Dr. Sameer Sharma / Dr. Mansoor Agha at +91‐9891255295 Or mail us at mail@Rna.net.in Rookies and Aces Consulting Training Outsourcing Resume Your resume is a brief overview of your past. As such it is best used to tell the admissions committee about a variety of past experiences in a way that demonstrates career progress. Without stating them directly, you will be able to hint at some skills and knowledge you have gained through these experiences. However, your resume won't tell anything about your vision of the future, nor will it give much information about your personality. The following are some tips from our resume manual to get you started. For more advice, contact RnA about our resume class and custom resume production service. Function of the Resume: The resume highlights your past experiences, and these experiences in turn point out some of your skills and knowledge. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Business School Selection and Application Assistance Program, RnA programs help aspirants in Global B.School Admission process and GMAT preparation Call Dr. Sameer Sharma / Dr. Mansoor Agha at +91‐9891255295 Or mail us at mail@Rna.net.in Rookies and Aces Consulting Training Outsourcing TIPS FROM OUR RESUME MANUAL 1. A well-formatted application resume should be: • • • one page long, in which only the best things are shown (quite different from a job resume, which is longer and more thorough) divided into 4 or 5 sections, which is standard format and helps to make your resume easy to read concise, using bullet pointed phrases and including only selected items about your past (a resume is often read in 30-60 seconds so it needs to be exceptionally clear) 2. In addition, an effective application resume : • • shows growth: it should show, in reverse chronological order, an increase in skills and knowledge, leaving no unexplained gaps of time shows balance: it should contain both professional and personal experiences (more professional than personal, but both are important), and experiences demonstrating a variety of skills and/or knowledge 3. An application resume should not include: • • • • • • Standardized test scores Common office computer skills (Excel, Word, etc.) Height, weight, race or ethnicity, family information Salary (unless it is requested) Photograph The word "Resume" at the top ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Business School Selection and Application Assistance Program, RnA programs help aspirants in Global B.School Admission process and GMAT preparation Call Dr. Sameer Sharma / Dr. Mansoor Agha at +91‐9891255295 Or mail us at mail@Rna.net.in Rookies and Aces Consulting Training Outsourcing Essays Application essays are your best opportunity to tell the admissions committee what you want them to know. Essays are thus ideally suited for interpreting your experiences for the committee. By illustrating your answer to each question with a limited number of well-selected past experiences, you will be able to call attention to the skills and knowledge you have gained that will be useful in your future. Essays are also the ideal place to elaborate on your vision of the future. The following are some tips from our essay manual to get you started. For more advice, contact RnA about our essay class and one-on-one essay counseling services. Function of the Essay: The essay is the ideal place to elaborate on your vision of your future. Also you can demonstrate your skills and knowledge through the stories you tell in your essays. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Business School Selection and Application Assistance Program, RnA programs help aspirants in Global B.School Admission process and GMAT preparation Call Dr. Sameer Sharma / Dr. Mansoor Agha at +91‐9891255295 Or mail us at mail@Rna.net.in Rookies and Aces Consulting Training Outsourcing TIPS FROM OUR ESSAY MANUAL • Start by working on essays for a second choice school. Your writing will improve as you go along, so begin with a school that is either less selective or less important to you. • Work on only one school's essays at a time. All of the essays for a single school work together to show your strengths and your selling point, so you should work on them as a package. • Give yourself LOTS of time. Essay writing requires planning, introspection and reflection, and as a result, effective essays only come about as a result of many revisions. • Identify the Question behind the Question before you begin to write. What is it that the admissions committee really wants to know about you from this question? • When you start to write, make an organizational plan. It is likely that your essays will be read quickly, so it is important that your main points not be missed. Use the question itself to help you organize. • Follow your organizational plan, and write in paragraph style with a topic sentence at the beginning of each paragraph. Then illustrate your ideas in detail. • After you're done with each essay, go back and revise the content. Re-read the question and make sure you've answered every part of it. Read your essay and look for general statements - add detail or supporting stories to these sections. Look for parts of the essay that are not really about YOU and shorten or eliminate them. • Finally, revise the structure of each essay. Make sure you have a topic sentence, smooth transitions between paragraphs, and the correct page, paragraph or word limit. You can exceed the word limit by up to 10%, but do not exceed the paragraph or page limit. At this point, make sure your font is 10-12 point, your margins are no smaller than 1 inch, and your lines are doublespaced. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Business School Selection and Application Assistance Program, RnA programs help aspirants in Global B.School Admission process and GMAT preparation Call Dr. Sameer Sharma / Dr. Mansoor Agha at +91‐9891255295 Or mail us at mail@Rna.net.in Rookies and Aces Consulting Training Outsourcing Recommendations Recommendation letters are documents written by current and/or past supervisor (and, in some cases, clients and other colleagues) to support your candidacy for business school. These evaluations carry a great deal of weight because they are, made by professionals who are in a unique position to judge your potential in business school and in your career field. Your letters will give credibility to the things you say in your essays and resume, and in addition convey the support of older professionals in your field. Recommendation letters give the admission committee an idea of your accomplishments, skills, personality and vision, but from a more evaluative perspective. The following are some tips from our recommendation manual to get you started. For more advice, contact RnA. Function of the Recommendations: Recommendations are primarily used to communicate an outside perspective of your greatest strengths, including your skills knowledge, experience, vision and personality. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Business School Selection and Application Assistance Program, RnA programs help aspirants in Global B.School Admission process and GMAT preparation Call Dr. Sameer Sharma / Dr. Mansoor Agha at +91‐9891255295 Or mail us at mail@Rna.net.in Rookies and Aces Consulting Training Outsourcing TIPS FROM OUR RECOMMENDATION MANUAL 1. Whom to ask Direct supervisor - the person who supposedly knows you best in a professional setting and can evaluate your professional attributes Someone else from work who has observed you from a different perspective A team leader from a project you worked on A satisfied client An indirect supervisor (e.g. your boss's boss) A professor - only if you graduated recently and had or still have a strong relationship with the professor (most MBA applicants do not use professors as recommenders) A client you have serviced Someone involved in an extracurricular activity with you (a volunteer coordinator, etc.) 2. Critical Criteria to use when choosing recommenders They must know you well. Detail is critical to a good recommendation, so recommenders should be able to tell stories and anecdotes about you to back up their claims. They must think very highly of you. A recommendation is not helpful unless it is almost 100% positive. A noncommittal letter is as bad as a negative letter. They must have credibility. Recommenders should be in a position to evaluate you without too much bias (not your spouse or other family members, not your best friend from high school, etc.). 3. What to bring to a meeting with your recommender List of your accomplishments that the recommender is in a position to write about Forms from the schools that list the characteristics they are asking about. You should write down in advance what activities or responsibilities you have had that demonstrate each of the characteristics Your future plans and goals (as long as it is okay to discuss these with your recommender) Questions for your recommenders. What do they think is your most outstanding skill? Your best accomplishment? Your excellence in comparison to others in a similar position? ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Business School Selection and Application Assistance Program, RnA programs help aspirants in Global B.School Admission process and GMAT preparation Call Dr. Sameer Sharma / Dr. Mansoor Agha at +91‐9891255295 Or mail us at mail@Rna.net.in Rookies and Aces Consulting Training Outsourcing Interviews A personal interview is valuable to the admissions committee because it is the best opportunity for them to assess your personality along with one particular skill: your ability to communicate. The admissions committee wants to get an idea how well you will handle the interpersonal aspects of attending business school. And from your responses they will assess both your English communication skill and your personality. Are you able to react quickly and respond to the questions with confidence? Are you able to remain professional and calm in a stressful situation? How might you behave in a similar situation perhaps in a classroom setting or group project? Although the interview questions themselves may be focused primarily on your skills, knowledge, experience and vision, the content of your answers is not as important as your presentation of them. The following are some tips from our interview manual to get you started. For more advice, contact RnA about our interview class and mock interview service. Function of the Interview: Although the topics covered in interviews often resemble those covered in essays, the purpose of these two application components is quite different. While the reader of essays is focusing primarily on your professional skills, knowledge, experience, and vision, the interviewer is primarily focusing on your English communication skill and your personality. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Business School Selection and Application Assistance Program, RnA programs help aspirants in Global B.School Admission process and GMAT preparation Call Dr. Sameer Sharma / Dr. Mansoor Agha at +91‐9891255295 Or mail us at mail@Rna.net.in Rookies and Aces Consulting Training Outsourcing TIPS FROM OUR INTERVIEW MANUAL • Schedule interviews with as many schools as possible, starting with some warm-up interviews at lower choice schools. Interviews are the best place to show your personality and your passion. Interviews can tip the scales in your favor, especially if your spoken English is better than your TOEFL score indicates. • Schedule your interviews on campus if possible, since this shows your initiative and your commitment to the school. If you lack English speaking confidence, consider scheduling alumni interviews in India instead. • Prepare spoken answers to all of your essay questions, but don't memorize your answers. You will sound too stiff and formal and the interview may become awkward. Give short answers that highlight your main points, then allow the interviewer to ask follow-up questions to get the details. • Be ready to answer some unpredictable questions. These are used to see how well you think on the spot. Keep your confidence high and don't worry about giving the "right" answer. (RnA's interview manual gives samples of these questions along with advice on how to deal with them.) • Learn the interview etiquette that is most common in English-speaking countries. This includes shaking hands, making small talk, smiling, showing a genuine interest in the person and making eye contact. • Don't apologize for making English mistakes. Just keep going and watch for signs that the interviewer understands you. As long as he or she understands you, your grammar is not that important. • Write a thank you letter within a week of the interview. This is professional and expected behavior. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Business School Selection and Application Assistance Program, RnA programs help aspirants in Global B.School Admission process and GMAT preparation Call Dr. Sameer Sharma / Dr. Mansoor Agha at +91‐9891255295 Or mail us at mail@Rna.net.in Rookies and Aces Consulting Training Outsourcing Common Application Mistakes • Applying to only the top 10 schools just because they're famous. Don't limit yourself to schools based only on rankings. Instead, choose schools carefully based on how well they suit your needs schools will know if you don't match their school and will probably not accept you, even if you are a strong candidate. The best strategy is to apply to some "dream" schools that you really hope to get into even though you know the competition is fierce. Then choose some "reasonable" schools where your qualifications are similar to previously admitted applicants. Finally, choose some "safe" schools where your qualifications exceed those of previously admitted applicants. Applying to a combination of schools increases your chances for being accepted this year. • Missing opportunities. MBA fairs and tours, visits by school representatives, and on-campus information sessions are helpful for understanding the application process. First, you can gather information that will help you decide which school to apply to. Then, once you have chosen schools, the information you gathered can be incorporated into your essays to show the admissions committee that you are committed enough to their school to learn about them in depth. • Focusing too much on improving your GMAT or TOEFL score. If you don't have the GMAT score you were hoping for, it is still possible to be admitted to your target school. High quality essays and recommendations that demonstrate your strengths and selling point can make the difference. (A recent RnA student with 580 GMAT was accepted to Wharton, while applicants with 800 GMAT scores are often rejected from schools such as Stanford. Test scores don't tell the whole story!) At least two months before the school's deadline, you need to concentrate on writing your essays. (If you are applying to more than one or two schools, you will need to begin even earlier.) Applicants never get admitted with strong test scores but weak essays. However, the opposite is possible. You can also concentrate on delivering a strong interview to convince the admissions committee of your communication ability and your distinctiveness. • Applying late. It is highly advisable to send your applications by the first or second deadlines for any schools you really care about. In most cases, your chances decrease dramatically in later rounds. If the school has rolling admissions, apply as early as possible, but try to send your application no later than the end of January. • Quitting your job to work on applications. This doesn't look good to the admissions committee, since it leaves a gap on your resume that is difficult to explain. Also, the majority of applicants continue to work full-time while preparing their graduate school applications. Compared to these applicants, you may look less impressive. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Business School Selection and Application Assistance Program, RnA programs help aspirants in Global B.School Admission process and GMAT preparation Call Dr. Sameer Sharma / Dr. Mansoor Agha at +91‐9891255295 Or mail us at mail@Rna.net.in Rookies and Aces Consulting Training Outsourcing The Big Picture Throughout the application process, remember that you control the way the admission committee sees you.
