Episode 160: Wire Taps—ED or Not ED, That Is the Question

Graham and Alex deliver another podcast episode of Wire Taps, dishing out MBA application and admissions advice. This week, a military applicant who has made significant strides in maturity and time management wants to show the adcom he’s ready for business school life—even if his early undergraduate record suggests otherwise. Another MBA hopeful reached out for advice on timing of their applications—specifically, should they jump head-on into an early decision that would be binding or take their chances with more flexible acceptances? Finally, an accepted candidate planning on a tech career is weighing matriculating at CBS with a scholarship or Berkeley Hass without one. Preview the posts from MBA ApplyWire and MBA DecisionWire that Graham and Alex discuss below, then tune in!
