Your form must be filled out clearly, completely and nicely. It should be read quickly by someone who does not know you - and give a clear picture of who you are. Use enough time. Do the job properly. Applications are typically the first hurdle, and the place where most people drop out. Make several drafts of your application, so you get it perfect before you fill in the original. Get someone to look at your draft - preferably one that does not necessarily know you so well and who can therefore see the document from the same angle as an Admissions Officer.

Recommendations / References to the MBA
Choose people who know you and likes you.
Choose people in business or by educational institutions, ie. with job titles that will be recognized by the school. Ask them before, and thank them afterwards (preferably when you have the result of the application). Inform them - but tell them what to write. Talk to them and give them a copy of your completed application form + CV, etc. Tell them that their input is important and not just a formality. Choose people who have and will give the time it takes to do a good job.

This may require a lot of legwork - and take more time than you expect, especially if you have an distance learning mba background from several schools. Again, do not wait until the last minute. Many schools will accept only original / certified diplomas.
