Zooming In – How to Put an Initial File Together
To advance your essays’ initial standing and cut down on costs, you can take some or all of the following steps. Effective work on I and II will eliminate the expense of joint "strategizing." (And nobody knows you like you do!)
1)Identify the 6-10 B-schools most appropriate to your profile and goals.
2)Surf the sites of the universities to which you will be applying to gain a general sense of what business schools are looking for and what they are about. Get into the B-school "mood."
3)Spend about 3 hours restudying the site of the first university to which you will be applying (your most urgent deadline or the package that requires the most words per essay on average). Clue on to general buzz words, study student/ class profiles, read students’ quotes. Figure out university tone (formal/ fun; friendly/ competitive…), emphasis (finance, entrepreneurship…), and structure (independent/collaborative work). Jot down information about relevant curriculum, faculty, methodology, student body, location, facilities, activities, etc.

1)Read your file questions carefully and decide upon a topic for each answer. Make sure the aggregate of your significant experiences and insights is spread across the file and don’t refer to an incident twice.
2)Consider the questions individually, jotting down (in bullet form) relevant details and insights. Make sure each answer includes every parameter of the question but not more than that. Take a few days to reflect, and re-consider your answers. Put in changes as necessary.

1)Write your answers, but don’t worry about exact word limit or style. Your insights are at this stage of much greater importance than is anything else.
2)Put your essays away for a few days, then re-read them. On second reading, you might find you have new ideas you want to incorporate or that you wish to get rid of some points.
3)Final-touch your essays, making sure they are clear (use logical paragraphing, plain transitions, and correct wording), concise (never use two words when you can use one), and fresh (active voice; varied, but properly used, vocabulary).
