Why wouldn’t you?!
The MBA application process can be grueling, but if you can turn your hard work into an acceptance to your target program, it will all be worth it. And wouldn’t it be great to have a little insider information to boost your chances? You already know the adcom will have to make tough decisions to fill their limited number of open spots. How can you make an impression that ensures you’ll be at the top of their list?
