Please correct the link for Management Schools of Thought, it should be management-schools-of-thought-38280.html and seems to be missing the last "-"

Amazing thread Praet, thank you for putting this together! A couple of items we could perhaps add are strategies for reapplicants as well as financial aid info (particularly in light of visa requirements for international students) - I think these two areas have garnered a lot of interest in the past.
