Hello! A friend on mine recently did not get into the top MBA programs that he wanted. With that being said, do you have any advice for reapplicants, and what they should look to improve on next time they apply?
- Kofi Kankam expert Jack - my advice for re-applicants is to be demonstrably better when they apply again and to apply early (round 1) if possible. Be article to articulate how you/your friend is a better candidate. Achievements like: 1) Improved GMAT/GRE score; 2) New responsibility at work/new promotion; 3) Classes taken to address a weak GPA; 4) Improved understanding of the school stemming from conversations with students and alumni; 5) Stronger leadership based on increased activities outside of the classroom. That's a rough list on where I would start to differentiate my candidacy if I were a re-applicant. Also, applying early and showing that you are eager to be part of the community if a good idea.
