B-Schooled Episode #33: Avoid Oversharing with the AdCom

B-Schooled

In this episode of B-Schooled, Erika is joined by her SBC colleague Lisa, former Director of MBA Admissions for the full-time and part-time MBA programs at Rice University’s Jones School. They’ll discuss when it is and isn’t a good idea to share deeply personal stories in your MBA essays or interview responses.

While you want to present your authentic self across your materials, when it comes to writing about certain past struggles or traumas, there is a fine line between what will differentiate you and what might give admissions committees pause.
