Episode 186: Wire Taps—Is 700 Enough?, ORM or URM?, GPA Repairs

With so many top business schools to choose from, it can be difficult to narrow down a list of where to apply and when. In this week’s podcast episode of Wire Taps, two MBA applicants seek help on which programs they should target. One early bird MBA applicant, who wants to end up in Atlanta, did well on the first sitting of the GMAT, but is wondering if they should retake.  Another MBA hopeful has established her target schools based on the class profiles, but is wondering if she should consider other programs – and whether she falls into the ORM or URM portion of the applicant pool.  Finally, an engineer applicant is looking to build up their business acumen with an MBA. Preview the profiles that Alex and Graham discuss this week, then tune in below!

The third featured applicant has goals in tech and may need to address their GPA with additional coursework:
