Welcome to the Letter of Recommendation Workshop!
Managing your Recommenders is as important as writing powerful MBA essays, scoring well on the GMAT or succeeding at the Interview. Each of these elements represents 25% weighting in evaluating your MBA Application.
Come and learn how to succeed on this crucial element – getting POWERFUL Letters of Recommendation!!
Topic: An overview of the importance of Letters of Recommendation and how a good letter “gets you in” and a bad letter “gets you out”.
Scope: What does B-school look for in the Letters of Recommendation? Who makes a “good Recommender” in the eyes of the B-school Admission officers? Should you choose Professional or Extra-Curricular Letters of Recommendation? How do the Letters of Recommendation tie into evaluating the rest of your MBA application? What are the elements that make up a successful Letter of Recommendation?
