10 Rules to Fight Wordiness (Snapshot from LBS MBA Essay Guide)


"I'm an active blogger and don't panic under deadlines but panicked a little when the deadline for London Business School was near. The creative writing part was not the challenge. Becoming aware of my true motivation for an MBA didn't happen naturally for me. I introspected, wrote a few outlines, but connecting my motivations with LBA MBA was the tough part. The book is an encyclopedia on how each course at LBS would benefit your future self. The depth of the utility of each course and how to rewrite the essays taking into consideration the importance of London shifted my approach.

Bottom line, unlike other applicants who found storytelling useful, I found the thoroughness of the curriculum analysis and post-MBA opportunities the reasons for recommending F1GMAT's LBS MBA Essay Guide. " - Verified Purchase

Up until now, I hadn't found a book where the author covers how to quote curriculum so elegantly.

For me, that's the whole point of essay guides - sample essays and tips on quoting curriculum. Writing of any kind is tough, but essays for Business Schools are a challenge of its own. It's still work, but the book makes your work much easier and enjoyable." - Verified Purchase

"It has been a few weeks since I read London Business School MBA Essay Guide. I have used this book as a reference for writing essays for two MBA programs. I read this book skeptically, believing it would be one of the same old advice on writing mba essays. Surprisingly, the Author gives a practical approach to creating interesting narratives and offers tools to maximize the chance of standing out. If you have written the first draft of the essay and are trying to figure out how to make the essay interesting, use the analysis in the first chapter and the storytelling tips to perfect the essay." - Verified Purchase

"As a newbie writer with a strong analytical mind, I thought I’d approach writing as a Math exercise. Deriving one event to the next, I tried to escape into the moments that defined me and watched how my older self took on risks and led me into a path that I am pursuing now. What I didn't have was an understanding of how London Business School would help me. I attended more than my fair share of MBA tours and events, but never got a sense of how-to connect with the admission team or the culture at London Business School. The analysis shared in F1GMAT's book is a lifesaver for anyone who wants to go into the details of how each course will help. The potential opportunities in London is another analysis that I found useful. The author provides a roadmap for structuring the essay using storytelling, routines and contexts. An excellent guide for anyone who wants to meet the London Business School MBA Application deadline"  - Verified Purchase
