Ugh - I threw up in my mouth a little. I'm really getting tired of all these NY Times op-eds by 23 year old graduates of top 15 schools lamenting the Wall Street recruiting machine. As a graduate of what they would all (in private, of course) refer to as a "third tier toilet," I can assure them that a $100k job you dislike is far preferable to a $35k job you dislike. Even worse is knowing that HBS will eat this up in a couple of years once her writing career (predictably) fails to take off.

OUR LATEST POETS & QUANTS HANDICAPPING FEATURE.

http://poetsandquants.com/2012/05/11/wh ... etting-in/


What Are Your Chances Of Getting In

He’s a key player in a strategic planning group at Honeywell Aerospace where he has racked up nearly five years of experience while also helping to care for a parent with early onset Alzheimer’s. With a 700 GMAT and a 3.64 grade point average, this 26-year-old hopes to get an MBA to move into a general management consulting role.

He’s a 21-year-old Vietnamese entrepreneur who has done summer stints at Boston Consulting Group and Google and is now finishing up his undergraduate degree in business at UC-Berkeley. He launched a small shot glass manufacturing business last year and wonders if he is a good candidate for Harvard Business School’s 2+2 program for undergrad applicants.

She leads a Fortune 50 retail company team on its global sourcing strategy. With a 710 GMAT and a 3.17 GPA, this 26-year-old woman wants to know if she should retake the GMAT and aim for a higher score to offset her low undergraduate grades on her MBA application.

What these would-be MBA candidates share in common is the goal to get into one of the world’s best business schools. Do they have the raw stats and experience to get in? Or will they get dinged by their dream schools?

Sanford “Sandy” Kreisberg, founder of MBA admissions consulting firm HBSGuru.com, is back again to analyze these and a few other profiles of actual MBA applicants who have shared their vital statistics with Poets&Quants.

As usual, Kreisberg handicaps each potential applicant’s odds of getting into a top-ranked business school. If you include your own stats and characteristics in the comments, we’ll pick a few more and have Kreisberg assess your chances in a follow-up feature.

FOR MY ANALYIS OF ALL THESE CASES, SEE

Great article in Poets and Quants about how Stanford relies more on top 6 firms in consulting and banking --(M/B/B) in consulting and GS, MS, JPM in banking than other top B schools. Commentator calls them a brand whore and evidence seems to support that.

http://poetsandquants.com/2012/05/15/to ... -stanford/
The analysis shows that Stanford’s admissions staff relies more heavily on a handful of firms to filter applicants into its prestige MBA program than any of its top business school rivals (see table on left). The same six firms, for example, account for about half the percentage of Class of 2013 MBA students at Harvard Business School, where Poets&Quants estimates that 17.8% of the first-year students are from these same six companies. Stanford’s enrolled students from these super elite firms, in fact, is nearly four times the percentage of those at Columbia Business School, where an estimated 9.6% of the Class of 2013 have one of those six firms on their resumes.

NEW HBS APP UP, MORE TO COME.
MAYBE SOME GMAT CLUB OFFICIAL SHOULD START A NEW THREAD, HBS 2013 --CALLING ALL APPLICANTS.

http://www.hbs.edu/mba/m/admissions/blo ... 2012-05-22
Class of 2015 (including 2+2): here's the application!
Here we go.

We are thinking of the Class of 2015 application process as three stages:

1. Introduce Yourself

This is the written application. These are the components:

•All the demographic data gathering you expect!
•Resume
•Transcripts of academic work
•GMAT/GRE test scores
•2 essay questions

2) Tell Us More

This is the interview process. Interviews are:

•By invitation only after review of written application
•On our campus or in TBD hub city locations, or in some cases, Skype
•30 minutes
•Conducted by members of our Admissions Board

3) Have the Last Word

This is new. AFTER the interview, candidates are asked to do a written reflection on the interview experience which will be submitted via the online application system. This is a chance for you to have the "last word," so to speak.

We'll be hosting weekly Q+A webinar sessions beginning on June 1 at 12:00 noon, Boston time. Subsequent webinar sessions will be held through the summer on Thursdays at 1:00pm, Boston time. To sign up, please visit our Events page.

We will hold on-campus admissions information sessions throughout the summer every Monday and Friday at 1:00 pm, Boston time. No advance registration required. For details, please see our Visit HBS page.

Our process is the product of an admissions team that is always in design/development mode. All throughout the year we meet and dream up ways that will make it easier for you to feel "understood" and undertake assessment steps that map to what we do here in the classroom and what you will do in your careers. We're always trying to tweak and improve, and this is what we've come up with for the Class of 2015. Welcome to the starting gate.
