    When it comes to diversity in business school admissions, both parties (that is, the over- and underrepresented groups) will need to step outside their profiles and impress the adcoms not with facts and descriptions of where they're from, but with a portrait of who they truly are. The Indian IT males will need to distinguish themselves from the crowd by highlighting their passions and interests outside of their careers and educations, while our female Bosnian lion trainer will need to prove that she's got more to offer a top business school class than fascinating stories from the circus.

    The resources listed below will help applicants from all walks of life prove that they can add to classroom discussion and team projects despite a non-traditional background, or contribute to MBA classroom diversity, despite an overrepresented profile.
