The tool does not define your potentials and therefore must not be a factor for one’s decision of getting into MBA. However, one should try checking on some websites prior to application to any of the prestigious schools such as Harvard, Stanford and Oxford in order to make some assessments.


You're absolutely right, the chances calculator does not define the candidate's potential. It only provides a rough assessment of the candidate's admission chances at the top MBA programs and should not be a factor for anyone’s decision of applying for business schools.

I'll take this opportunity to introduce our new and improved top MBA programs page, now with more info on each school - FT rank, US News rank, average GMAT, deadlines, # LOR required, specializations and tuition: http://www.aringo.com/top_MBA_Business_ ... ograms.htm

I've read from previous post that your EC activities are also considered. Is this correct?


EC activities are great to have but not necessary. If your profile is strong enough you can get in without EC, but if your profile is medium then EC can help you.

Hi there! I would like to ask insights about the probable college for me. I am 34, married and a pre-med graduate. I was a little bit full with the small business I started in the past few years and I just recently decided to get into Masters. I need some pieces of advice.

Hello. I would like to know if the website offers services for people interested in other fields like Masters in Broadcast Journalism and Masters in Public Administration. Any idea?

For your perusal, please visit the Aringo website. As to its goal " To increase the number of people accepted to the top-10 MBA programs with a GMAT score below 700", vividly their services focus on MBA aspirants. However, there are parts of the website contents that are helpful to anyone who wishes to get a masters degree.

How about choosing the best school? Can this consulting company assist one in terms of school selection? There are lots of prestigious schools when it comes to MBA courses.

What's your basis in choosing a school? Well, there's a lot of factors that could influence your choice.

I prefer checking their website in its entirety rather than just paying attention to one assessment tool. I find their goal interesting which is to increase the number of people accepted to the top-10 MBA programs with a GMAT score below 700. That sounds like music to the ears of many MBA aspirants.

About EC activities, I agree that your profile is still the best weapon in the process of application but this could somehow help you in case you fall short with your work experience and other categories.

You're right! EC activities are like “add on's” that can increase your score by small points.

How does a school enter the top-ranked list of MBA schools? I am just wondering how they got the title.

You can choose any MBA school that you like as long as you would be able to pass the application process. HBS, INSEAD, Wharton, etc.

There are different rankings with different metrics. I think all of them include average GMAT score, job placement, and post-MBA salary in the rankings. They usually also include GPA, recruiter assessments, peer assessments/reputation, or even alumni surveys. None are perfect, of course, but the rankings can give you an idea on classmate and professor quality while in school and job prospects after.

Poets & Quants wrote an in-depth pdf on rankings:

http://poetsandquants.com/wp-content/up ... ULLMAG.pdf

It seems like the most recent BusinessWeek ranking is skewed because it relies heavily on surveys, and they somehow were overly biased this year.

The Economist actually surveys alum, so you can get an idea of how happy students are - Chicago Booth, Dartmouth Tuck, UVA Darden, and Berkeley are the top 4 schools here, all ahead of HBS. They seem to "over perform" compared with other rankings.

US News is supposed to be the most reliable one.

I agree. We can count on US News for information like this as well as with other rankings (cars, hospitals, officials, etc).

Just refer to your GMAT score. If you have a GMAT that is acceptable at the top MBA schools, then choose from the top 3.
