I can help answer some questions. I am a current MLT fellow.

At least for our year the minimum score that you must achieve on the GMAT is a 650. If you don't hit that then the program makes you get a tutor or take a prep class at your own expense.

The GMAT prep within the program is pretty minimal. You are really expected to be working on that on your own. I think one of the most useful aspects of the program, however, is the accountability. You have monthly check-ins and assignments that you review with your coach and there is a lot of pressure to actively work on improving your GMAT and other aspects of your application. I know personally it's very easy to lose sight of the big picture when you are swamped at work so I think this accountability is key.

If anyone has any more specific questions to ask me, feel free to ask here or PM me!

Thanks, guys! I reached out to them yesterday morning and received a response in the evening. I'm sure their response time is dependent on the complexity of your request.

I had a “Final Round - Test registration confirmation” field appear in my application. Has anyone else had this? I submitted my official test score but did indicate I would retake it in March/April.

Hi there,

I applied to MLT MBA Prep round 2 and got an email on the evening of January 12 that I was waitlisted. My GMAT score was well above the 500 required minimum and I submitted two recommendations, so I don't know what type of additional materials I should submit (if any?). I sent them an email today asking for any insight, but I got an automated reply. I'm not sure what else I can/should do to increase my chances of getting accepted. I'm also curious to know when I can expect to hear a decision either way.

Any advice is appreciated!

It's good to keep in mind that even though applicants think of the decision based on them alone the people who are making the decision are looking at everyone comparatively as a group. So it just might be something about a particularly competitive group or them looking for specific things. Did you get a chance to check out the recommendations before they were submitted? I can tell you that recommendations can be pretty awful sometimes; good ones will really set you apart bad ones will hold you back. I actually worked with a client from BCG Spain who had a 780 GMAT and he was dinged without interview but once I saw his recommendations that told the story. It's important that they tell a story about their interaction with you that addresses the question.

Do these letter really have THAT big of an impact on dinging a candidate? Was your client's rec letter negative or just poorly written?

Quite frankly, I'm thinking about asking my old boss to write me a rec letter, but he has terrible writing skills and plus is constantly busy (investment banker life) so might do a poor job.

However, I worked with him very closely (literally day and night) so he knows me very well.

It's rare that the letter is actually negative yes, maybe poorly written but honestly the biggest problem is the content itself it's just really not selling the applicant as it could or should.

Its important they tell a story about you that supports a claim about you. specific examples....and not just a bunch of crappy adjectives it's a very different animal than what most people think it is.

Your recommendations are being compared to others, keep that in mind It's identical to you writing a crappy essay.

Give them a quick outline of the example you want them to talk about and ask if they are willing to work openly. If they're not willing to work openly with you then don't put your fate in their hands. I would skywrite this if I could.

Hey, thanks! Good to know re: decision dates.
I work in education/tech, 6 years work experience. I got a 600 (39 Q/33 V). I know I need to re-take to get 650+ (will be my 4th attempt :dazed ), it's just a matter of how helpful of a resource MBA Prep will be if I'm accepted. I believe my recs were good - although I understand it's just a standard questionnaire - so I'm curious what other factors I need to improve/highlight to affect their decision.

Reporting back re: Accelerated Prep Program-- it seems it's a rolling admissions program that'll start in May and is 3x the cost for more 'personalized' and condensed assignments and interactions with a specific coach. You'd only attend the final seminar in July. I don't think I'm going to do it. I rather get started sooner and frankly, the price is offputting considering it's a shorter program. I rather get to work with a coach earlier on and get advice on a couple things sooner than later.

ETA: they gave me a survey link to share with anyone interested in the accelerated program, so DM if it sounds like something you'd like to look into.

Has anyone received an admissions decision that applied during the extended deadline that closed on December 4th? I'm just wondering if I'll be looking at an extended notification time frame because of that.

I just got accepted this week-- excited to meet everyone!

I can confirm that you can get into MBA Prep without a 650+ GMAT score (I took my first GMAT the week of the MLT deadline without full studying due to life circumstances, plan to do full 2-3 mo. course of studying before retaking). Other areas of your application have to make up for it. My profile:
    3 years work experience-- MBB consulting, then tech startup
    GPA 3.76
    GMAT 600

I submitted my GMAT score on 1/14 and got an acceptance email on 1/17
