I am a little confused since if one has a genuine interest in the graduate study of business and that person is otherwise qualified, it does not seem logical to refrain from applying based on a perceived lack of good "leadership stories." Some applicants seem needlessly discouraged by the fact that their applications packages are not perfect in every regard. However, there are many successful applicants who do not have a high standing on every admissions variable. Some low GMAT students are accepted to ultraelite schools. Likewise, some students with low GPA, or low leadership experiences (e.g. background in retail sales), or low conventional business experience (e.g. military), or low extracurricular involvement will be accepted.
