2019 Best B-School Bracket Challenge: Championship Voting!
Welcome to March Madness
March Madness is underway! Clear Admit has created our 2019 bracket for the “Best Business School of 2019” for you to decide who will take this year’s crown. The “Final Four” results are in and we have now opened up our “Championship” voting. “Championship” voting will close on Monday, April 15th at 10 a.m. EST. So take your time, make your picks wisely and have a little fun as we welcome March Madness to Clear Admit.
How it Works:
For those not familiar with a March Madness bracket, you simply vote for your favorite or what you think is the best business school in the head-to-head pairs listed in the polls below. The school with the highest number of votes will advance to the next round. We will replicate this round-by-round process until a champion is determined!

Will be utilizing the test waiver for both of these institutions. Received a B.S. in Marketing
I am also applying to the PART-TIME MBA programs and both of these schools.
Looking to get into consultancy as advertising can be redundant and want a more dynamic career path.
Hi Alex and Graham!
I've been listening to your podcast weekly for a few months and the profiles and webinars have been so helpful!
I am only applying to Georgetown McDonough because I am geographically restricted to DC for the next couple of years. I have attended their online events, spoken with admissions representatives, met alumni and toured the campus. I am applying in the second round.
I am from a top 10 public university with double majors in Economics and Statistics. The quant classes were very challenging so my GPA was very low. There was not a positive trend in my grades over the years. I am aiming for a 700 on the GMAT.
My background is in the marketing analytics and advertising measurement industry. Job duties include working with data, client engagement, project management, requirements gathering and coordinating with internal and external stakeholders. I’ve worked with Pharmaceuticals marketing clients. I want to get into technology and data Strategy Consulting post-grad. Long term goal is to break in to the tech startup scene. I want to pursue an MBA to gain the credibility to hold senior leadership positions. Also would help for network building.
My most recent job and team were affected by a corporate reorganization so I have been unemployed for 2 months now. Additionally, I took a year off of undergrad after freshman year to address mental health issues. One more gap in my profile would be that I was unemployed from May 2020- January 2021 due to a crappy job market during the start of the pandemic.
In my free time I like to work out, play in soccer leagues (I am the team captain), hang out with friends, cook new things, explore the city, read about current events and business/tech news. I am involved with my undergraduate career center and mentor current students.
To summarize, I am seeking advice on:
—Demonstrating that a school is my one and only
—Very low GPA
—Undergraduate year off
—Addressing a layoff and period of unemployment?
Thank you so much!

Worked in consulting (tier 2) for 2 years, focused mostly on strategy work for utility company wildfire mitigation. Decided to explore the startup world to learn how to make my own for the same target of wildfire prevention down the road. High performer, good leadership experience with the startup, and consecutive promos.
Now targeting either making my own startup post mba or VC in wildfire mitigation field (like convective capital)
