Yesterday we presented an argument for a strong correlation between an applicant’s success in showing UC Berkeley that they cared about Berkeley’s culture based on how the applicant pitched the admissions team in their MBA essays.
We also talked about why you might want to care about culture anyway, regardless of if the school cares if you care.

If you care about a school that cares about students and what their experience is like and whether they’ll be good complements to each other as colleagues on the path to learning and meeting challenges, then these schools are ones to explore. Not all of them have explicit essay questions that are transparently screening for qualities of school fit, but all of them focus on that as they conduct their assessments and evaluations of the apps that come in. These qualities certainly also come up in the interviews.
