For other advice, visit my blog here at the GMAT Club, labeled "Ask MBA Admit - Dr. Shel Watts".

Best wishes,

From the article:

Reevaluate Recommenders. It's important for recommenders to give a positive and up-to-date portrayal of the applicant. Admissions consultant Shel Watts explains that this can sometimes end up being the deciding factor because many top MBA programs pay special attention to the quality of recommendations. "Even if you have one that's mediocre and you are applying to a top school, you will get rejected based on that one recommendation," says Watts. She tells clients to be extra diligent in picking recommenders who respect their work and can attest to career growth in their new application…

Assess Goals. When it comes to applying the second time around, Watts advises applicants to be careful of appearing drastically different from what was stated in their initial application. She explains that writing about a separate set of career goals in a second B-school application without allowing a sufficient explanation could result in another rejection. Changing goals works better if students take a year before reapplying, Watts says, because it shows the applicant has had sufficient time to grow and reassess.
