B-Schooled Podcast Episode #79: Interview with Cooper, CMU Tepper Student

Last year, Cooper worked with SBC on his MBA applications in Round 2 of the 2020-21 admissions cycle. He knew he had a lot working against him: he was just out of undergrad, had a lower-than-average GMAT and GPA, was coming from a non-feeder college, and was in an overrepresented demographic bucket.

In this episode, he shares insights he gleaned through the application process, what he thinks ultimately helped him gain admission to Tepper, as well as a little bit about his experience there so far.
