University Offers Scholarship for the Best Tweet

A MBA program at the University of Iowa is offering a $37,000 scholarship to the person who can write the best tweet. Instead of writing two essays, applicants can write one essay and one tweet:

Applicant Seth Goldstein of Columbus, Ohio, submitted his tweet last week and said he was excited for the “fun, unique challenge.”

Students are encouraged to link to their blogs, videos, Facebook accounts or anything else that may help answer the question: “What makes you an exceptional Tippie Full-time MBA candidate and future MBA hire?”
