For aspiring MBAs, the summer is a time for quiet reflection, not to mention getting a jump on the competition through either an internship or other educational opportunities. Reading is another affordable way to expand your mind and give you deeper insight into management. "I'm a fervent believer that information adds to knowledge, and knowledge is a powerful tool for good decision-making," says Hassell McClellan, associate professor of operations and strategic management at Boston College's Carroll School of Management (Carroll Full-Time MBA Profile), who used to have his own children read five to six books each summer and turn in one-page book reports.

The second time I took a prep class with Veritas Prep, studied smarter, and pulled out a 710. Before I get into some of the things-I-wished-I’d-known-but-didn’t, let me make a note on target scores: General wisdom holds that you should aim to meet or beat the average GMAT score of the programs to which you are applying.

Hello out there, fearless MBA applicants! Now that I have droned on about the GMAT I am going to move to the larger (and much more interesting) topic of your “story.” Now, before you think that I’m getting too touchy-feely, hear me out: Yes, your application consists of specific data points that admissions directors use to get a sense for your general intellectual strength. These data points are things like your GMAT score, your undergraduate GPA, your salary compared to peers from your company, etc. I definitely do not want to imply that these data points are not important – because they are – but I do want to stress that they do not make up who you are.
