Episode 154: Wire Taps—Can I Negotiate a Scholarship?

Image for Episode 154: Wire Taps—Can I Negotiate a Scholarship?

Drained from a crazy week of R2 admissions decisions at Wharton, Kellogg, UCLA, Berkeley, Yale, UT Austin, and more – not to mention a first appearance on the Clubhouse app – Graham nearly forgets to show up to record WireTaps! The resulting episode is a bit like the podcast equivalent of an HBS ‘cold call’. Thankfully, our hosts still manage to tackle some big issues including the influence of geography on GMAT/GRE testing, the curious case of an American solely targeting European b-schools, and the dilemma one candidate has of choosing between offers from USC or NYU for post-MBA goals in the music industry. Alex and Graham also weigh in on the Elite Eight from Clear Admit’s post-MBA employer bracket challenge – wondering who will emerge as Google takes on Amazon, McKinsey take on Facebook, and more!
