Episode 200: Wire Taps—Should I Still Apply This Year? Do I Have Enough Work Experience? I Need Help with My Quant Score!
We are excited to mark another milestone with our 200th podcast episode! We would like to thank all our listeners (who have combined for more than 222,000 listens) for making this podcast the show that it has become!
Alex and Graham are here to mark the occasion with another installment of Wire Taps, in which they dish out MBA admissions advice to current applicants. First up, we have an Indian candidate who now resides in Canada, and is seeking an MBA to start a consulting career. Some of the challenges he faces include making good sense of his career path to date, which includes an undergraduate degree in dentistry, a graduate degree in human resources, and several different work experiences. Compounding his challenges, he will likely need to retake his GRE, which currently sits at 310. Next, our hosts discuss a candidate who graduated more recently from undergrad, but appears to have a very strong foundation in terms of impact at work, over three years. This, combined with an outstanding 339 GRE, would appear to open doors at top programs. Finally, Alex and Graham discuss a candidate from Nigeria, and frankly, wonder if he shouldn’t seek out some more higher profile programs, to complement the four he is already targeting.
