Erin Kellerhals, Associate Director of Admissions for Berkeley’s FT MBA program recently shared some thoughts on the most frequently asked question she receives: “What will make me stand out as an applicant?”
Many aspiring MBA students know that they need to demonstrate past examples of “leadership” along the path to demonstrating their longer-term “leadership potential”. But what, specifically, does this mean? And how does the definition vary by school?
Many younger MBA applicants are concerned about whether they have “enough” work experience to be competitive in top MBA programs. We outline a number of ways to improve your competitiveness in this important area.
We frequently receive requests for profile evaluations (i.e., what are my chances of getting into School X given my profile?) … MBA Prep School has created an exercise called the Ding Diagnostic which helps applicants do some self-assessment on their candidacy. The more checkmarks (or “dings”) your profile earns on the checklist below the more of a reach a highly selective program will be for you.
