B-Schooled Podcast Episode #68: How to Think Like the AdCom


Let’s face it: it’s really hard to be objective about your own MBA candidacy. The tough reality is that simply having high test scores, a stellar GPA, and/or coming from a respected company or undergraduate institution isn’t going to be enough.

You have to find other ways to stand out from your equally brilliant MBA competition, and a great way to do that is to take a step back and assess your candidacy from the admissions committee’s point of view.

This episode explains:

• What top MBA admissions committees are looking for
• How you can best differentiate yourself if you’re in an over-represented demographic or industry bucket
• The type of themes successful applicants focus on in their essays
