#1- Community service.
Often, I hear MBA candidates say, “can they really check on this?” No, business schools can’t really “check” on this, but it will still factor into your candidacy.
There are ways to weave it into your letters of recommendation, resume and essays. Community service enriches you and so too will it enrich your essays and letters of recommendation.
This is such a huge way to differentiate yourself, and sorely overlooked by overrepresented candidates especially for top business schools. Deepen your engagement with a community service, or find a volunteer opportunity.
