A lot of students ask me what business school they should attend. If they think they have a shot at a top ten school I recommend Stanford, MIT, Harvard, Columbia and Wharton. For entrepreneurship I recommend Stanford and MIT. For students interested in finance, despite my efforts to change their career direction, I recommend Wharton and Columbia.
After the school selection question, everybody asks for advice on their application essays. Application essays require a lot of work for the student and anyone advising them. Recently HBS announced that an application only requires one essay and that one is optional. Hopefully this change will be adopted by all the top 10 schools.
Thank you HBS on behalf of everyone who advises students on their application essays.
