In what is a totally understandable impulse, we frequently get BSers asking us what career goals are “best” to use in their MBA essays. It comes up over and over again.
We know where that question comes from. When faced with the task of applying to bschool, it seems that you’re dealing with one test after another.
Are your grades good enough? (a test)
Do you have the right work experience? (a test)
Are you the right age? (a test)
What about your GMAT, or GRE? (literally, a test)
It’s only natural that you would assume that things like career goals are also a test. That the adcom will be evaluating the goals to determine if you pass muster, and should be accepted.
It feels like a test.
But it’s not.
