For 2020 – 2021, HBS is keeping its essay question the same: ““As we review your application, what more would you like us to know as we consider your candidacy for the Harvard Business School MBA program?”

YES, you DO need guidance on what to write (and what NOT to say, lest you make them roll their eyes)… but NO, you do NOT need to waste thousands of dollars to get world-class MBA admissions consulting. ApplicantLab is the solution for you!

“ApplicantLab got me and my girlfriend get into HBS and several other top MBA programs.

I honestly do not think we could have done it without the app, and I think everyone applying to business school would benefit from it.

We did not work with any traditional consultants, but having gone through the whole process, it is hard to imagine what they would offer that you cannot get from [ApplicantLab] at a small fraction of the price.”

– E.P. (Accepted to Harvard)

“I used ApplicantLab for my applicants to Harvard, Stanford, and Wharton in Round 1, and was accepted to all 3.

Private admissions consultants were so so expensive and not an option for me, so I took the leap, and could not be happier about my choice.

The service is unconventional as a concept, but superbly executed and is a gamechanger. I had questions about how effective an online system would be, and am blown away by how much direction it gave my essays and my interview prep.”

– L.M. (Accepted to Harvard, Stanford, and Wharton)
