Texas MBA Company Info Sessions At Rackspace

Here with Casey Andrews, MBA ’11

Two Texas MBA program directors and I were treated to a tour of Rackspace company headquarters in San Antonio last Wednesday following a Texas MBA information session held on site. Our tour guide? None other than Lawrence Reyes a.k.a SugarBear, Ambassador of Culture. He took us on the grandest of interactive tours that included peeking into themed departments and conference rooms (think game shows, cereal, 80s movies), viewing installations by local artists, traveling down memory lane in a 1968 Hemisfair gondola chair, and a very quick slide down to the first floor!

MBA Admissions Interview: How to Totally Crush ItWe’ve all been there. Despite all the preparations, research and rehearsals, you find yourself nervous about your MBA admissions interview. While this isn’t technically a job interview, you may do well to treat it like one. An MBA admissions interview is a very important part of your overall application and ultimately one of the first steps towards your post-MBA life.

At McCombs, interviews are by invitation only and can come at any time before the decision release date. While some applicants may look forward to the opportunity to interview, others may not exactly enjoy the anxiety thereby engendered. If you are a member of the latter group, look at it this way: the interview affords one of the only opportunities for official face-to-face interaction during the application process, so here are a few ways you can take advantage: Continue reading

Five Tips for Writing a Successful MBA Application Essay

Five Tips for Writing a Successful MBA Application EssayThe MBA application process is a stressful one, particularly since so many parts of the process are determined by external factors. The one part of the application that you have the ultimate control over is the essay section. Through the essays, you have the space to discuss your candidacy and tell your story directly to the admissions officer without any outside interference. It is an amazing opportunity and the following are five (hopefully) helpful tips to maximize this unique opportunity.

1. Be Authentic

The MBA application process should be an introspective one, and as you hone in your goals, dreams, and ambitions, you should have a real sense of who you are as a person and what you want to tell the admissions committee. Do not fall into the trap of trying to craft an image of yourself that you may think is more appealing to a particular school. As experienced application reviewers, we know when someone is trying to portray something that is not really them. We will (eventually) figure it out, and if that happens Continue reading
