If your dream of attending a top-tier business school was dashed by a rejection this year, we know how hard that can be. To work so tirelessly toward a goal that you don’t achieve can be spirit-crushing. And yet, we’re here to tell you that it does happen. You are not alone.
We’re also here to tell you that you might want to think about reapplying. Did you know—one out of every 10 students in most Harvard Business School MBA classes applied more than once and was rejected the first time. That’s right. On average, a tenth of the HBS class is made up of reapplicants.
There’s even more good news. Having gone through the application process once can give you a real leg up the second time. You probably already have a good sense of how you can strengthen your candidacy. Some schools will even offer feedback to rejected applicants intended specifically to help them apply again.
So finish licking your wounds already, and listen to the latest episode of the Clear Admit MBA Admissions Podcast, available here and on iTunes. In it, Clear Admit Co-Founder Graham Richmond confesses an intimate knowledge of what it’s like to be a reapplicant. And then he breaks down all the most important steps to follow to ensure the outcome you want this time.
