21 days out 18Dec

The wave of Round 2 deadlines may look like it’s on the horizon, but, based on what goes into applying to business school, those deadlines are closer than they appear.  Whether you’re just kicking off your MBA applications or have some experience knowledge from Round 1, this podcast episode will help you succeed in Round 2.

Two of Clear Admit’s admissions experts, Graham Richmond and Alex Brown, run through what it will take to submit strong apps and ultimately receive positive news from your target schools.  Richmond has worked in the MBA admissions space for 20 years, earned his MBA from Wharton, and co-founded Clear Admit.  Brown worked for several years as part of the admissions team at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School and is also the author of Becoming a Clear Admit: The Definitive Guide to MBA Admissions.

What does the duo tackle in this episode? Everything you need to start your Round 2 apps today through the last Round 2 deadline! Here are just a few of the challenges they cover:

  • Knowing and managing deadlines
  • Spacing out, drafting and writing essays
  • Getting ready for data forms
