The Consortium awards merit-based, full-tuition fellowships to top MBA candidates who have a proven record of promoting inclusion in school, in their jobs or in their personal lives. We recently covered The Consortium essay prompts and application deadlines for 2020 – 2021, including highlights of a few of our client’s Consortium success stories. Now, we are covering The Consortium letter of recommendation prompts.
While this prompt is for The Consortium’s letter of recommendation, the prompt is also helpful for applicants to other graduate school programs. Letters of recommendation should be drafted by people who know you well, and can speak to your strengths.
Note: Be sure to verify the letter of recommendation details on The Consortium website, as details can change.
