B-Schooled Episode #8: Time and Energy Wasters


In this episode, Meg — a former University of Chicago Booth admissions committee member and current SBC admissions consultant — joins Erika to discuss some of the biggest things they see MBA candidates wasting their precious time on during the application process.

  • *Why* it doesn’t make sense to worry about certain things in the admissions process
  • What applicants’ time is better spent on
  • What waitlisted candidates should do (and not do) to strengthen their position
  • The pros and cons of MBA message boards
  • What MBA candidates should do if/when they find themselves filled with doubts
