This is interesting. I was definitely going to apply there. Looks like I need to find another program.

Agreed. What other schools are you considering besides Kenan Flagler? I'm having a tough time finding decent programs that match the profile of Wake Forest. I had a good chance at receiving a scholarship there.

In addition to Kenan-Flagler I'm looking at Vanderbilt, Emory, Georgetown, and George Washington. What about Wake Forest did you specifically like?

Vanderbilt and Emory are on my list as well. The size and location were a huge plus for me. Plus, I have a rather low GPA and mediocre GMAT (650). My stats seemed to be a good fit, per the admissions director. I'd like to stay in the south (the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic are also contenders). The school's relationship with PepsiCo is great! That's one of the companies that I'd like to work for.

Very nice it sounds like we are looking at similar schools for similar reasons. I too have a below average GMAT score and that may scare me into waiting another year to apply and re-taking. You bring up an interesting point about the relationship with PepsiCo. How do you go about gathering info on what companies schools have great relationships with?

Looking at each program's employment report. The previous dean of Wake Forest was the CEO (or other C Level executive can't remember which) at PepsiCo prior to coming to the school. I have the current brochure from Owen, which actually breaks down the employers for each specialization.
