How to Strengthen Your M.B.A. Application

Mar 24, 2011

Stacy Blackman, US News - 03/24/2011 - With so many applicants and so few seats available at top b-schools, many aspiring M.B.A.s find themselves shut out during their first application season. After putting so much time and dedication into completing their applications, the thought of trying again the next year can be overwhelming. The good news, however, is that reapplying is often easier. You've already done the bulk of your school research, GMAT test prep, and essay writing. As a re-applicant, you simply need to refine your application.

B-schools generally don't give explanations to rejected candidates, so you can't call the admissions office to find out what was lacking. This can be difficult, but here are a few strategies commonly used for strengthening b-school applications.
