How Will MBA Programs Going “Test-Optional” Affect Your Chances?

The COVID-19 pandemic has left an indelible mark on pretty much every facet of society. This application cycle, more and more MBA programs are electing to waive the GMAT or GRE test as a requirement for applicants. How will this affect acceptance rates?

On Wednesday, May 12th at 10am PT/1pm ET, we’re hosting a live session entitled Applying to Business School in a Test-Optional Application Surge: A Live Q&A with Experts. In this session, you’ll be able to ask our MBA experts your individual questions about how this change will impact your chances and how to adjust your application strategy in light of it. 

The Q&A will be moderated by Accepted founder and CEO Linda Abraham and feature a panel of three expert MBA consultants: Christie St-John, Natalie Grinblatt Epstein, and Cindy Tokumitsu. You’ll be given information about how the waiving of test requirements will impact application numbers, and how you can find ways to stand out, even with a marked increase in applicants. 

It’s totally free to attend, but you do need to reserve your spot to participate. Don’t wait and let seats fill up—register now!
