You might recall that I mentioned I had worked on two books. Well, the first of the books, Admitted: An Interactive Workbook for Getting into a Top MBA Program (85 Broads, 2011), is officially completed and available for purchase at Amazon.com and AdmittedMBA.com for $24.95 and downloadable chapters are available at AdmittedMBA.com. I worked as a consulting editor for Betsy Massar, the book’s author and founder of Master Admissions. It was a wonderful experience, and since I was pregnant while working on it, I feel like I’ve now delivered two babies – my son and the book.
Admitted is the perfect book for anyone who has ever thought about applying to an MBA program. Unlike the other books out there, this one helps people reflect on the decision to go to business school and the application process itself. It’s a lifesaver when it comes to writing the admissions essays because it offers activities that prompt you to truly think about your strengths, weaknesses, and the way in which you should craft your story. I have been writing about MBA admissions for nearly a decade, and I can honestly say (even though I admit my bias) that there aren’t any other admissions books like this one. It’s truly unique for its activities and ability to help applicants thoroughly dissect the admissions process, so they can turn in the best applications possible.
Good luck to all those applying to business school!
