Episode 41: Wire Taps—Advice for a First Generation College Grad, Engineer, Entrepreneur and More

We are moving right along in our new podcast series, Wire Taps, during which our resident admissions experts, Alex Brown and Graham Richmond, discuss entries in Clear Admit’s admissions tools, ApplyWireDecisionWire and LiveWire.

In each Wire Taps episode, Alex and Graham offer advice to MBA applicants to improve their admissions strategies, increase their chances of acceptance, or determine where to matriculate.

For this episode of Wire Taps, Graham and Alex discuss four recent posts to MBA ApplyWire.  One candidate is a head of trading, and also a first-generation college grad and immigrant; another needs help deciding how to present their work experience.  An MBA hopeful from an engineering company in Africa is also featured, along with another applicant with a history of (and ideally future in) entrepreneurship.

A little background on MBA ApplyWire: It is a platform for applicants to use in the early stages of their business school application journey.  Candidates share details about their candidacy (GPA, GMAT/GRE, career goals and more) and also identify potential target schools.  The Clear Admit community, alongside our staff, then provides input on the applicant’s chances of admission.

Be sure to share your MBA admissions profile for the chance to be featured in an upcoming episode!

And now, tune in for some keen admissions advice:
