Go-Getter

Early Career (Plan Ahead) Service.

Want to know how MBA admission boards would view your profile right now?

So you can strategically correct the blind spots that will get you rejected later.

Timing your MBA application is not as straightforward as you might think.

Most people will tell you to apply early to b-school—as early as possible, because admission boards seem to favor younger candidates.

And you probably know you’ve made some good choices so far with the college you’ve gone to and the leadership roles you’ve sought…

But you’re still not sure you’re a total shoe-in.

A lot of people in your position come to us after having approached this problem the same way they approach everything in life.

They try to educate themselves.

They read every book about MBA admissions, become a regular at info sessions, have their favorite school’s marketing material memorized, and have talked with dozens of alumni of the MBA programs they’re interested in.

But generally they find none of this really gives them a clear answer to the question,

“Should I apply early, or wait a while longer?”

A lot of people in your position come to us after having approached this problem the same way they approach everything in life.

They try to educate themselves.

They read every book about MBA admissions, become a regular at info sessions, have their favorite school’s marketing material memorized, and have talked with dozens of alumni of the MBA programs they’re interested in.

But generally they find none of this really gives them a clear answer to the question,

“Should I apply early, or wait a while longer?”

Are You Ready For HBS?

Well, let us share with you the biggest trap most early candidates fall into.

You probably have heard this before, but the applicant who’s least likely to get admitted to a top b-school is the applicant who has overlooked their leadership impact in one of three critical areas…

College

It’s not enough to just be in a student club.

How did you lead in your fraternity, sorority, athletic club?

What kind of student leadership roles did you take on, and how did you own those roles?

Even off-campus activities can count here.

The bigger impact you can document, the better.

Community

This demonstrates your commitment to others around you.

Where did you see a need and then rally people to fill it?

How have you served others in your area or social groups?

It’s not enough to have worked with non-profits or sat on their board.

You have to demonstrate that you did more than show up to a few meetings.

The more projects with your fingerprints on them, the better.

Career

There’s a saying in acting that

“There are no small roles, just small actors.”

It’s true for MBA applications too!

Even if you’re a junior at your firm, how proactive have you been?

Have you led teams and projects?

Did you come up with something brilliant and then take ownership of it to make sure it got implemented?

Where did you take risks, stick your neck out, and deliver value?

That’s the kind of leadership admission committees are looking for.

If you can’t clearly show how your leadership has had an important effect in at least 2 of these 3 areas, your chances of getting into b-school right now are slim to none.

Fixing the gaps in your profile is difficult; as is creating a timing strategy based on what you can realistically improve.
