Applicants Love SBC’s B-Schooled Podcast


SBC often receives emails thanking us for the killer content we provide on the B-Schooled podcast. For many MBA applicants, the actionable advice we share is invaluable for their business school pursuits. Today, we’re highlighting a note of gratitude we recently received from one thrilled B-School-bound candidate.

Hi Stacy Blackman Consulting Team,

I am writing to express my sincere gratitude for your podcast on Spotify. I became a listener in November 2022 after deciding to pursue an MBA. For background, I was a non-traditional undergrad student (…) with less than a 3.0 GPA.

With my less-than-stellar undergrad performance, I doubted my chances of getting into a reputable graduate school program – much less a top 20 MBA program.

Know your podcast gave me the guidance and confidence to aim high. Thanks to your numerous episodes on essays and applications, I landed invitations to the Rice Jones Hybrid MBA and Texas McCombs Weekend MBA programs. I am thrilled and honored to have these opportunities, and I owe it all to you.

Thank you for creating such a valuable and inspiring resource for MBA applicants. You are making a difference in the lives of many people, and I am one of them.

Keep up the great content!
