EssaySnark's Strategies for the 2022-'23 MBA Application for Harvard Business School
We’ve refreshed Harvard SnarkStrategies Guide to help you focus your strategy of applying in the exciting season ahead! This updated strategy guide incorporates all that we learned from last year’s crop of Success Stories, and talks about how to approach the 900-word limit on the essay. Even if you end up waiting till the last minute to put your essay together, we have a schematic to walk you through the basic structure needed for your HBS MBA essay – yet if you’re planning ahead, then you will benefit from extensive exercises and many ideas for developing your content. The guide is a massive 120 pages, chockfull of advice to unpack the details of your own past and history, to figure out what to present in the best way for Harvard. We’ve streamlined where we could to help you focus, while adding additional examples and suggestions throughout. Includes a section on the interviewing process at Harvard, with useful first-hand reporting from a Brave Supplicant who generously shared their notes after interviewing.
Harvard wants the best and the brightest, the most accomplished, the superstars. Is that you? We give you a methodology for mining your material to come up with a direction and strategy for the single Harvard essay – and we tell you how long you should aim to go with it. The school says no limits, but there’s still a range in terms of reasonable length. There’s always exceptions though! Don’t let us dictate your strategy. All we’re doing is offering advice and guidelines, based on what we’ve seen from successful applicants to Harvard Business School for the last decade.
This SnarkStrategies Guide for Harvard is the most comprehensive, up-to-date guide that you’re going to find on the market — with information on impacts from Harvard’s deferred matriculation policy during coronavirus, and what the situation looks like for admissions this year. EssaySnark covers all the bases so you have the best chance possible on this most important application.

As a reapplicant, I wish I had purchased this strategy guide prior to writing my 2016 submitted essays or 2017 first drafts. I skimmed through multiple strategy guides from various consulting companies last year, but found none of them to be particularly helpful. By making you go through certain exercises, this strategy guide will stimulate your thoughts and unlock memories of past achievements/accomplishments, which you may have forgotten. Quite frankly, I think the strategy guide is worth 5x the actual cost. The downside? I now have to completely trash my first draft and go back to square one.
I have read a lot of different strategy guides (clear admit, veritas etc) and its my humble opinion that EssaySnark's HBS guide will give you the most amount of practical and usable advice, especially when it comes to what the school is looking for.
EssaySnark starts by honestly admitting that he does not know what the school is looking for (truth is no one does), and goes to talk about some of the traits that are important to Harvard as they evaluate over 7,000 applicants.
I was hesitant to spend money on an admission consultant (costs ~200/hour) and this book has been a great DIY companion.
NOTE: Do not buy this book expecting it to be a magic bullet that will enlighten you to the definitive way to get an offer from HBS (In fact, any consultant or book that promises that is BS'ing and truth is that their is no one way to get an admit from HBS)
