Throughout the rest of December, leading business schools will be rolling out their decisions to Round 1 MBA applicants. While many are eager for the gift of admission via phone, email or portal, waiting for a decision can push anxiety levels to full tilt for the Class of 2020 hopefuls. But, fear not, anxious applicants! At Clear Admit, we have two resources that are designed to help you navigate these few weeks: Clear Admit LiveWire and Clear Admit MBA Chats.
MBA LiveWire is brought to you by Prodigy Finance. Visit prodigyfinance.com to learn more about funding your international MBA.
Reports from Real Candidates on MBA LiveWire
Keep your finger on the pulse of MBA decisions by tuning into Clear Admit’s MBA LiveWire, where real applicants report their results from the top 16 b-schools and plenty more. Whether you are waiting to hear from one school or several, you can sort LiveWire by school, round or status to deliver the information you need the most.
For example, if you are waiting for a decision from Yale School of Management, you will want to spend some time on LiveWire Wednesday of this week to see when and what decisions roll in. Further, as can also be seen in our Week Ahead series, you should head on over to LiveWire for Chicago Booth decisions on Thursday. You can also sort LiveWire based on previous seasons to learn more about how each admissions office generally releases their decisions.
Once you have received your decision(s) from the schools you applied to in Round 1, we are also hoping you will post those decisions to LiveWire, to help your fellow candidates, who may be similarly anxious about this process.
Access Experts and Fellow Applicants While You Wait in Our MBA Chats
Instead of anxiously checking your phone alone, visit the Clear Admit MBA Chats! We are scheduling daylong chats for many of the leading MBA programs on the days they are scheduled to release their decisions. Whether sharing application plans or results, you can interact directly with other candidates who are also waiting for and learning their fate, as well as discuss application strategy. A member of Clear Admit’s team will also be on hand from time to time to answer any questions about admissions.
Each chat will open at 9 a.m. Eastern Standard Time. Here is the current chat schedule:
