Before You Apply: Get a Great Recommendation Letter

Let’s start at the beginning. The instructions given on the Texas MBA application are as follows:

We require one professional letter of recommendation from a person who has supervised your work and/or has assessed your performance during your career. Professional recommendations are strongly recommended (i.e. direct supervisor, indirect supervisor, or a client). If you are unable to request a letter of recommendation from your direct supervisor or feel that another recommender would be more appropriate, please explain why in your optional statement. 

When you think about it, you (the applicant) have direct control over most components of your application – you write your essays, you take your exam, you earn your GPA, you draft your resume. The recommendation letter is one of the only things you rely on someone else to provide, which is why it can seem daunting. Circumstances differ for every applicant, so deciding who you should ask will vary depending upon your personal professional situation.  Below are some scenarios to help guide you in choosing your recommenders.

Choosing the Right Test for Your MBA Application

From the Texas  MBA Admissions Team:

So, you’ve decided that you want to apply for an MBA. Congratulations on making a fantastic decision!  But, now what?

One of the first application components that prospective students typically focus on is that dreaded standardized test.  It can be an intimidating first step. Where do you even begin? If you’ve researched our program,  you already know that the Texas MBA Program accepts both GRE and GMAT…so how do you know which exam is right for you?

First things first: The Admissions Committee doesn’t care which test you take. Honestly! We do not have a preference of exam, and do not believe that one test is better at demonstrating your preparedness for business school than the other.

Now that that’s out of the way, it’s important to think about what exam is best for you. In some cases, there may be a reason to consider taking the GMAT over the GRE, or vice versa.

The Myth of the Non-Traditional MBA Candidate

The following was written by Samantha Frapart, Texas MBA ’17.

I thought I couldn’t get into business school. With my double-major in English and Ecology, five years in non-profits, and my natural aversion to words like “Nasdaq” and “synergy,” how could I convince admissions teams that I belonged in their MBA programs? Well, after graduating from McCombs in May of 2017, I’m here to happily debunk one of the greatest myths of business school: The non-traditional candidate.

Contrary to popular belief, business programs aren’t looking for human calculators. They are looking for students eager to foster strong teams, willing to negotiate & compromise, and ready to share diverse perspectives. In management classes, I was able to add a unique viewpoint to discussions on anything from government regulations to corporate social responsibility. Though I looked to my study-team for help with my finance homework, I was able to offer equally important business lessons like proper brief-structure and design thinking.

We all have something to offer, it’s just a matter of figuring out what that is and letting it shine through.

Though I assure you “non-traditional” is a thing of the past, I know this process can feel daunting. So with the Texas Full-Time MBA application opening soon, I’d like to share some helpful tips from my experience (before and during business school) in hopes that it might ease your worries and prepare you for the fantastic two years ahead.
