B-Schooled Episode #10: Candidacy “Question Marks,” Part 2 of 2


We’re back to bring you a preview of episode 10 of SBC’s new B-Schooled podcast, which covers all aspects of the MBA application and admissions process.  In a continuation of last week’s episode on “candidacy question marks” – or red flags on an MBA candidate’s record – this week’s episode covers what to do if you:

  • have employment gaps in your career,
  • are unemployed when you apply,
  • get laid off or fired after you submit your materials, or
  • have something like a DUI or honor code violation from college on your record.

Part 1 covered what to do if you have:

  • A low GPA
  • A low test score
  • A few low grades within an overall decent GPA
  • A lack of extracurriculars
  • A lack of work experience, and
  • “Too much” work experience (or when an applicant is older than the rest of the candidate pool)
