If we've learned one thing in our years in the MBA admissions world, we know that every MBA applicant will come face to face with one of the two most common application obstacles: a far too common profile, or a far too non-traditional one. For the former, the challenge comes in setting yourself apart, and showing the adcom that you're not like all the other consultants they'll read about as they sift through that stack of apps on their desk. And for the latter, it's all about proving that, no, you're not crazy and, yes, you have what it takes to succeed in business school.
Neither is an easy case to make, but we've seen hundreds of applicants do it successfully. And we're going to break it all down and show you how they did it, while giving you the tools to do it yourself. From the guy from Wall Street to the kiwi farmer in Guatemala (yes, that happened!), we're covering all the bases to show you what it takes to build a successful MBA application.

I will apply to only some schools this year (do not have much WE yet) and probably apply a bit more seriously next year. I currently reside in Tokyo. Is it possible if I want to move back to Japan 3-4 years after b school? I know it makes for sense to do an MBA in Asia if Asia is my long term destination, but considering the number of doors that a top 10 US Bschool opens for you, I think it gives you a lot more of what you call a global exposure. Any thoughts?
I agree with you. and lots of International applicants have similar plans such as yours. Obviously if you will go to the US it makes sense to stay a few years, gain some experience on a nice post-MBA salary, but many people do return "home" eventually.

Thanks Jon for clarifying. But won't mentioning this as a long term goal hurt my chances at the US School?
Not at all. Your short term goals should be in the US for them to make sense, (although there are exceptions here too)
