The University of Iowa has recently unveiled a Twitter contest that challenged college aspirants to answer–in 140 characters or less–the following question: “What makes you an exceptional Tippie MBA candidate and full-time MBA hire? Creativity encouraged!”¬†Applicants then tweet their answers or respond on Facebook, in lieu of a second application essay for the $37,000 scholarship.
