R3 Admissions: The Alternative Facts

Posted by Eric Allen: Admit Advantage & Admit.Me on 08 March 2017 / 0 Comments

You are THAT person: last to the team meeting; last to make the final boarding call; last to the party. If this sounds like you, maybe you’re trying to figure out if round 3 actually affords applicants a viable MBA admission opportunity. It may seem like an easy answer for admissions experts – the general convention is to wait until next year, but this may not ring true for every applicant. Before procrastinators around the world start feverishly completing applications, let me make it abundantly clear that round 3 is not ideal for most candidates. That being said, I want to take some time to address some alternative facts should you decide to take a shot at round 3 admission:

4 Steps to Defining Your MBA Goal

Posted by Linda Abraham, Accepted.com on 05 January 2017 / 2 Comments

Top MBA programs are looking for applicants who have a clear idea of how a business degree will help shape their future. This is why the MBA goals essay is such an important piece of your b-school application.

But how do you write a goals essay if you’re unsure of your post-MBA goals? What if you are changing careers and know you want to obtain the skills provided by a business program, but aren’t sure which career direction you want to pursue after your degree? Should you spend time looking into post-MBA options (trying out different jobs or shadowing people in different careers) so that you can submit your application with a secure MBA goal, or is it better to enter a program with undefined goals?

Your post-MBA goals should guide you in the application process – at the very least in deciding where to apply. Not only is it worthwhile spending time finalizing a post-MBA direction, it’s required. You need to know why you want to spend a large amount of your time and money before you apply. Not knowing what your post MBA-goals are could turn your MBA investment into a huge debt with no job to pay it off. Think of your goals as a weathervane – if it’s broken, it spins uselessly in the wind, but when working properly, it points you in the right direction.
