MBA Application Essays - Be careful of what you mention there.

Our website:

B School evaluate an applicant on quantitative inputs such as GMAT/GRE scores & GPA as well as on qualitative inputs such as Resume, Essays and Recommendations.

Many students tend to go overboard when they write their essays.

Here is a warning to such a group.

While you may cross the first hurdle and get an interview call, the same exaggerated write-up can get you in a soup in an interview.

Most of the interviewers get input about a candidate from the write-ups and CVs.

Any exaggerated claim in an essay can be questioned by an informed interviewer and cal lead to non-selection.

Similar logic holds good for extra-curricular / hobbies.
