  3. 3. A significant portion of my MBA admissions consultingapplicants come to be with little to no extracurricularexperience since their undergraduate days.While this is a problem that can be addressed, it canshow a lack of proper planning over the long term.A lot of applicants dont think about the impact of theiractions on their applicant competitiveness when thegraduate from undergrad.To a certain extent, even I was the same way.MBA Admissions Consultant | http://www.amerasiaconsulting.com
  4. 4. What I like most about some of my clients is the the waysome of them are way ahead of the game we call theMBA application process.Those that have been planning since day 1 to go back tob-school tend to be distinguishing yourself from yourpeers out of the gate and these habits show whenconstructing the business school application.MBA Admissions Consultant | http://www.amerasiaconsulting.com
  5. 5. This is what I tell those who have graduated and areplanning to apply to business school in a few years:Make sure you find a mentor at your employer. This doesnot have to be formal but it always helps when someonecan show you the ropes. This person should be seniorand be respected in the office.This mentor will also be able to make introductions foryou around the org. This will help when it comes torecommendation time.MBA Admissions Consultant | http://www.amerasiaconsulting.com
  6. 6. Adcoms will consider your tenure and the ratio ofleadership experience to overall experience at your work.Work to maximize this so that you can write about iteventually in your essays.Make sure you are asking for leadership responsibility. Itdoes not matter if it is leading the charge with organizingthe company holiday party or asking for more work whenon a project. Its called managing your manager and itworks wonders when its time for a promotion. Do thisand more opportunities will arise. You may get to pickand chose your project work.....MBA Admissions Consultant | http://www.amerasiaconsulting.com
  7. 7. Stepping up also helps with respect to your eventualrecommendation when your manager is asked for howwell you rank against your peer group.Seek out those in the organization who have MBAs. Getto know them. Eventually, ask them to lunch and get toknow how they liked their MBA experience.Get involved with extracurriculars at work. Assume aleadership role as well as I have alluded to above.MBA Admissions Consultant | http://www.amerasiaconsulting.com
  8. 8. See what pre-MBA mentoring programs are available toyou. I know UCLA Anderson has the Riordan programs.This is a great way to gain exposure.Join several other organization types:•Toastmasters International -http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toastmasters_International•A young professionals organization in your city - these orgs havesocial and business elements that will help you network.•Meetup.com - look for groups on meetup that have business orphilanthropic goals that align with your interests.MBA Admissions Consultant | http://www.amerasiaconsulting.com
