Education Blog Taps Clear Admit’s Graham Richmond as Its “Ask an MBA Admissions Expert”
Test preparation firm Varsity Tutors recently interviewed Clear Admit co-founder Graham Richmond for its “Ask an MBA Admissions Expert” blog series, and a transcript of that interview posted live to the company’s education blog yesterday.
In the interview, Richmond shares insights he has gained advising prospective applicants to top MBA programs here at Clear Admit, as well as in the years he spent before that working in admissions at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School.
From how to avoid making common mistakes on MBA applications to how much time applicants should allow to apply to top programs, Richmond covers a lot of ground in the interview. He stresses the importance of paying close attention to detail and of using the application to help the admissions committee really get to know you and, ideally, see why you would be a good fit at their particular school. He also weighs in on GMAT test prep courses, which types of work experience are most useful to highlight in your application and the differences and similarities between the MBA and undergraduate application processes.
For more on these topics as well as additional admissions tips, read Richmond’s complete “Ask an MBA Admissions Expert” interview with Varsity Tutors.
