Hi Ladies,

Thought I would suggest one resource that was helpful to me prior to business school - I'm sure many of you are already familiar with the Forte Foundation...but I'll just mention that they have a couple of conferences (which are a mix of speakers and networking with recruiters). I attended the Finance Conference in the summer of 2008 right before I started my MBA at Sloan and enjoyed it. I read an article the other day that said that on average women received 50% less interview invites and offers during their final year of b-school (compared to men). The reality is that as a woman you are fighting an uphill battle because there is (I think) a bias towards men because they do not leave the workforce/company to have children. The more networking you can do beyond what your program offers - the better.

I'm an admissions consultant and have been working with candidates since 2009 when I was in b-school myself. Feel free to reach out for a complimentary chat about school selection etc. http://fxmbaconsulting.com/free-mba-adm ... sultation/
If you saw this posting here (and you're a female applicant), mention it and I'll extend a 25% discount on top of any services you're interested in :)

Leadership Conference

Finance Conference
http://www.fortefoundation.org/site/Pag ... =moveahead

They also have a fellows program you can apply for. Although they aren't giving you a scholarship being a fellow is likely a platform that will give you more visibility within their network and with partner recruiters.

Thank you, fxMBAconsulting!

Do you know anything about the 2015 forums? I've been keeping an eye out for one in the Pacific Northwest!

Hi there!

Very excited to be here. I'm a (hopeful) Fall 2016 candidate. My school of choice is INSEAD, based off of recommendations from several colleagues who have extensive international studies and who know me well. I have spent the last 5 years in management roles in the healthcare field and I am pursuing my MBA so that I can enter the global healthcare consulting field. I've enjoyed my role in management, but feel that I can have a larger impact in a consulting role. My biggest uphill battle, I think, will be the fact that I've always worked for smaller scale companies and would like to move into a larger platform. What is the best way to present myself? Experience driven or focus driven? Despite my smaller scale experience, I think I have a lot to bring to the consulting field and I am truly passionate about global healthcare and am planning on living internationally permanently, post MBA studies.

Thanks everyone! If there are any other INSEAD hopefuls, I would love to connect! Send me a message!

-Margaret

Hi!
I am so happy to have found this thread!
I am Tina and I am targeting 2016 intake too. I took my GMAT recently and scored 740. Planning to take my TOEFL in July. I belong to the super-competitive Indian-IT candidate group. I want to start the application immediately but feeling kinda clueless. If anyone has started application, please share what is the *first* thing that you did?

Hi all,

I'm applying this year too! Split my schools between R1 and R2 because each app seems to take so long.

I'm an Indian lawyer, been working in the sustainable infrastructure space for a while; hoping to transition to the more commercial side of things with an MBA.

Good luck to all of us!

Hi ladies. I have been a silent lurker but finally decided to post.

Did any of you ladies get an invite from HBS? Pretty depressed as I don't have any hopes on HBS now :(

BTW I am Mona and I work in semiconductor manufacturing

Hello!

If you missed your 2016 intake, be sure to check out the Forté MBALaunch program. It's admissions prep (both test and application) especially for women. Applications are open until Nov. 15 to apply in 2016 and aim for intake in 2017.

Good luck!!

Total female question here, but if an interviewer has specified "business casual," do you think I would still need to wear pantyhose with a dress? (inwardly cringing here...)

So I hired an MGMAT tutor myself, and he was pretty awesome. I took the LSAT when in undergrad (dodged that bullet) and took a Kaplan classroom course, so that's my base for comparison. What's nice about having a tutor is that they can give you tips for specific problem-types that will really help you. When you do an online program or a classroom, you're accounting for the lowest common denominator and the lack of customization can definitely slow your studying down. I know in my LSAT classroom setting, we had some folks that really slowed down the pace and it could feel pretty inefficient.

That being said, there are plenty of people who self-study and do VERY well. I feel like the biggest things I learned from my tutor were essentially tricks to solving tougher 700+ level problems. Otherwise, you can get tons of great advice from this forum as well as from an online program. If you're disciplined and trust your googling abilities, you may not need a tutor, but if you can afford one and it will make you feel more comfortable, a tutor can be a GREAT resource.

It also gives you someone to brag to when you get your dream score!! :wink:


Hi LetMyPeopleGoSurfing,

I am also based in Oregon and was planning to hire a Manhattan tutor. Actually I do have a 720 score with Q49 and V40 but I am hoping to improve it further as I am an Indian female applicant. Also because I ended up on the waitlist for multiple schools, so I am hoping to improve my candidacy with a better GMAT score.

I have been trying to hire a manhattan tutor but it seems that they don't have anyone in Oregon. So I was wondering if you took online sessions with a Manhattan tutor? Also what kind of package did you take? Anything about your experience with the lessons will help me.

Thank you!

Hey ladies:

Just checking to see how everyone is doing. Who ended up applying where and how did it go? Who ended up delaying things for a bit?

Hope you're all doing great! :)
