MBA ApplyWire Spotlight: One Top Choice

As new MBA applicants try to figure out their admissions chances and strategies, many are posting to Clear Admit’s ApplyWire, a platform for feedback from our community of top-tier applicants to help inform your final choice of schools and approach to admissions.

In this edition of MBA ApplyWire Spotlight, we take a closer look at a potential Duke/Fuqua applicant who only plans on applying to their top choice this year.

With a wealth military experience and previous work with some of the largest consulting firms in the world, including Bain and Co. and Boston Consulting Group, the applicant might be applying to UVA/Darden, Columbia Business School, Northwestern/Kellogg, or Michigan/Ross in 2019 if they cannot enroll into Fuqua this year. However, that all may depend on their GMAT performance.

Clear Admit’s resident expert, Alex Brown, offered some advice on highlighting their additional graduate school work:

OP explains that applying to multiple schools this year just doesn’t make much sense for them financially. But in regards to Fuqua, they may have a definitive inroad to enrollment, thanks to their relationship with a previous supervisor.

With all that mind, Brown and fellow Clear Admit expert Lauren Wakal wrapped up the thread with a confident sendoff.

Best of luck with your applications!
