Last Day to Apply for Beat The GMAT 2012 Scholarship!

Our friends at Beat The GMAT (BTG), the world’s largest social network for MBA applicants, will soon stop accepting applications for their seventh annual Beat The GMAT Scholarship Competition. This year, BTG will award scholarship packages for six winners, valued at more than $11,000. Each of the winners will receive one GMAT prep course (even a Veritas Prep course!), an admissions consulting package and a $250 GMAT voucher. BTG will accept applications until tonight (Monday), April 23rd. Winners will be announced on April 30th.

Since 2006, Beat The GMAT has been able to distribute $193,000 in scholarships to MBA applicants. We have gladly given some years’ past winners GMAT prep courses and MBA admissions consulting packages, and we must say that we’ve been incredibly impressed by the caliber of these applicants. If all business school applicants had their act together as much as these find young folks do, then the admissions process would be even more competitive than it already is.

Applying to (and get into) the world’s most competitive MBA programs requires a great deal of introspection. It’s not enough to want to attend a top-ranked business school; you also must convincingly argue why you’re a good fit for the school and why it should choose you over so many other qualified applicants. This exercise is exactly what you’ll go through when you apply for the BTG Scholarship, so consider this an excellent warmup for the grueling MBA application process ahead.
