Be Surpising

Derek Sivers, one of my favorite bloggers, wrote this for public speakers. I think you can apply the same principle to your MBA positioning, essays and interview prep:

Cut out everything that's not surprising (30 second read)

"People only really learn when they’re surprised. If they’re not surprised, then what you told them just fits in with what they already know. No minds were changed. No new perspective. Just more information." - Derek Sivers

Are b-school admissions officers learning something new from your application?

Onward!
