Episode 72: Wire Taps—Older Applicant, Low GPA but High GMAT, Choosing Between Two Schools

Most Round 2 deadlines are just around the corner, and applicants are also weighing Round 1 decisions.  Clear Admit’s admissions experts, Graham Richmond and Alex Brown, are back to offer applicants and accepted candidates advice on how to make the most of the MBA admissions process in a new episode of Wire Taps.

Each week, they highlight profiles from MBA ApplyWire or MBA DecisionWire and offer strategies these b-school hopefuls should use.  This week, the duo reviews an entry from an older but enthusiastic MBA hopeful. They also advise an applicant with a low GPA, but high GMAT and another accepted candidate trying to decide where to attend.

If you want a chance to be featured on the podcast, be sure to post to MBA ApplyWire or MBA DecisionWire.  Happy listening!
