History of Fat Envelopes

Nick is a successful entrepreneur. He also wrote some really terrible essays while trying to get into business school. During the interview to get into MIT, an admissions officer said that the essays conveyed none of his personality. The concept of Fat Envelopes was born in that painful moment (which was very much relieved by getting into MIT and loving it). Years later, Nick decided drive around the US to gather up the stories of successful MBA applicants. How did they get in? How can their struggles help a new generation of applicants? 12,000 road miles and 55 interviews later, Fat Envelopes became reality.
