According to Kaplan Test Prep’s 2014 business school admissions officers survey*, the vast majority of MBA programs across the United States aren’t following the lead of top schools like Yale, Stanford and Wharton in cutting the number of admissions essays they require applicants to submit ( http://poetsandquants.com/2014/07/03/yale-cuts-required-mba-essays-to-one/ ). Just 13% of the 204 business schools that participated in Kaplan’s survey say they had cut the number of admissions essays for this cycle, compared to 2013; and just 3% of schools say they plan to cut the required number of essays for the next application cycle.
