Before any student can dive into the dynamic world of an MBA, they are faced with a long application process. Months can be spent choosing a programme, filling in forms, writing admissions essays, finding letters of recommendation and taking the GMAT or GRE. So what is the best approach to take? We asked a selection of FT MBA bloggers to share their advice:
Merih Ocbazghi, Kellogg School of Management: “The most difficult part of the process for me was the time between submitting the application and hearing back from the schools. This can be an incredibly nerve-wracking period as it feels like your entire future hangs in the balance. What helped me was to return (briefly) to my pre-application lifestyle. Reunite with those friends that you had to neglect due to studying for the GMAT, rekindle that hobby of yours that you didn’t have time for anymore. The worst thing you can do is spend too much time trying to put yourself in the admissions officers’ shoes – this will likely drive you crazy which is not a good situation for anyone.” Read more
