I've received a few PMs regarding my profile so I'll just post my reply here....

28 yr old American male, 750 GMAT, varied work experience (restaurant management, sales, compliance/risk management), decent extracurriculars (Toastmasters, Big Brothers Big Sisters, local nonprofit small business consulting organization), PSU for undergrad (I'm sure that didn't hurt...haha)

Hi,

I have received admits for both Smeal and WP Carey MBA programs. I am planning to major in Supply Chain and both programs are ranked in top 10 for SCM. Financially both have given good offers! Any pointers here about these schools that might help me decide? Thank you!!

Smeal reputation with the employers in US is highly ranked in US and given the Supply Chain concenteration it is he best. It is my view that i have gathered from alumni and students over dere.
WPCAREY is equally ranked but if i were you i would have picked up Smeal.

Last year, I applied Smeal at Round 2. My GMAT was 640. I was denied after interview. Their feedback was:
-I needed to have more work experience (I had only 3 exp years)
-I didn't have a strong example of teamwork
-a concern in verbal communication

This year, I reapply Smeal at Round 2. My profile has been improved compared to last year. I retake GMAT =>690. I have got promotion in my company. I have got the blackbelt in Aikido. Few hours ago, I has been received the interview invitation email.
Can anyone share some tips in interview for me?
Thank you.
