B-Schooled Podcast Episode #213: Getting into HBS and the GSB—Advice from Those Who’ve Done It, Part 3 of 3


Perhaps more than any MBA acceptance pair, many applicants dream of being admitted to both the Stanford Graduate School of Business (the GSB) and Harvard Business School (HBS). In this three-part B-Schooled series, two GSB and HBS dual admits—host Chandler and SBC consultant Dawn—sit down for a series of VERY candid conversations about gaining admission to these two schools.

• In the first segment, our hosts provide important context for how this podcast should be used (and how it shouldn’t). Afterward, they share their personal insights into what types of students tend to thrive in each environment.
• In the second segment, our hosts are more data-driven, with Dawn and Chandler reviewing successful applicant profiles from each school.
• In this final third segment, Dawn dives deep into what some call the “unicorn” of the MBA applicant world… those applicants fortunate enough to be admitted to both programs.

This episode is a must for MBA aspirants applying to either of these elite schools. Listen to B-Schooled here or on any of the major podcast platforms below.
