As part of the selection process, highly competitive MBA programs require candidates to answer a range of essay questions about their background, goals and suitability for corporate leadership. In their zeal to learn more about the applicants, many schools also ask "non-traditional" questions about values, problems and ethical dilemmas that you have faced. Many times, the strength of your essays will determine whether or not you will be invited for a personal interview - or awarded a seat in the class. Before you tackle something this important, we recommend that you take the time to read numerous essays that worked.

101 Business School (MBA) Essays That Made a Difference (ISBN 9781933819648) presents 101 successful essays that enabled their authors to gain admission to the business school of their choice. By design, they cover more than 40 different topics, including the candidates' goals, personal background, accomplishments, and motivation to obtain an MBA. The selection also includes successful responses to being waitlisted and more than a dozen addendums to explain a disappointing GPA or GMAT score.

Collectively, these essays show the many ways that candidates have presented themselves to the committee in a creative (and effective) manner. They also show the caliber of writing that is expected at top U.S. business schools. Before you write your own essays, take the time to read successful ones, from students who have already accomplished what you are trying to do.

See what writing styles, themes and personal revelations impressed the committee and won admission for their authors to the most prestigious schools in the world. Use them to gain insight into your own experiences and to write your own compelling essays. For something this important, why leave your application to chance?
