[b]How He Went From Dinged to Accepted at Wharton and Stanford!


We have many success stories to mention about re-applicants to Wharton who went from no interview invitation when applying on their own, to interview and admission the very next year with our guidance. What are some of the factors that make this possible? Let’s take a look at an example below to see what sorts of factors Wharton will weigh positively when considering a re-applicant.

Candidate: The candidate applied the year prior without our assistance and was rejected without interview from Wharton. With the assistance of MBA Admit.com, he received interviews and admissions to both of his dream schools, Stanford and Wharton.

Age: 26-year old male

Industry: Investment banking at a large, well-respected bank in South Africa

GPA: Solid – though not stellar – performance at one of the top two South African universities

GMAT Score: 700

# Years WE: 4.5 years, with promotions

Extracurricular activities: He presented his Wharton application the first time with no mention of extracurricular activities – a clear weakness

Citizenship: African country

General Assessment, Strengths/Weaknesses: We were rather shocked to see his prior outcomes because even though his academics could have been stronger, this candidate truly had an impressive record of professional achievement and a remarkable personal story. We took a look at the applications he had submitted the year prior without our guidance and there was notable room for improvement in his recommendations, overall application and essays.

MBA Admit.com Strategy: Our approach included making sure to highlight his remarkable personal story in the essays, drawing on that information to help explain why his academic performance was not stronger and why his extracurricular activities during college were less extensive. Very importantly, we kept his highly impressive professional achievements front-and-center in the essays and used the choice of essay topics to highlight his strong professional leadership experiences. We stressed his vision and winning characteristics such as initiative. We helped build him up in his extracurricular credentials in the months we had before he implied, such that those credentials became among his strengths. The new application presented him in a very favorable light and painted a very compelling portrait of a man squarely en route to great success in the future. Because of the sheer strength of his candidacy, we encouraged him to apply also to Stanford.

Outcomes: This candidate was accepted to both Stanford and Wharton. After not even receiving an interview at Wharton the year before, you can imagine he was one very happy candidate! This was a great outcome.

Success is possible!
