In this episode of B-Schooled, we discuss four things you need to consider if you find yourself facing the “Bird in Hand” dilemma, named for the old quote that goes, “A bird in the hand is better than two in the bush.”

Instead, they are contemplating forgoing the sure thing and taking the risk of trying again in the future in the hopes of getting into a program they’re even more interested in.
