One of the ways to get yourself admitted to Harvard Business School is to write a smart and compelling essay. Now students can plop down 50 bucks and see what has worked in the past, according to a piece on the business education website Poets & Quants.

The Harbus, the MBA student newspaper at Harvard, is selling a 55-page compilation of essays from students who were admitted to Harvard's prestigious program, writes Poets & Quants founder John A. Byrne.

This is what every applicant encounters when applying: "You're applying to Harvard Business School. WE can see your resume, school transcripts, extracurricular activities, awards, post-MBA career goals, test scores, and what your recommenders have to say about you. What else would you like us to know as we consider your candidacy?" So most students get busy scribbling away on the optional essay without word limitations.
