Different business schools have different admissions requirements. It’s really up to you to research what the requirement are for each individual university, and cater to them.
Some schools require written essays or supplementary forms. The two keys to success with written applications are to:
#1: Start writing early. The earlier you start, the more chance you have to think things through and re-edit.
#2: Get people you trust to edit your work. This can be guidance counsellors, parents, university students, and other mentors. The more people you ask, the better.
Other schools have embraced the 21st century and require applicants to do “video interviews”. In this case, some key tips include:
-Test out your lighting.
-Don't look at the question on your screen; look at your webcam.
-Dress to impress.
-Be aware of any time limits on your answers.
-Make sure you are in a quiet setting.
-Try to make sure your background is neutral and your room is clean.
And then some schools, like my alma mater Brock University, do not require any supplementary forms or essays – admission was based purely on grades.
