Denied MBA aspirants have been given a new ray of light to strike gold the second time around through feedback sessions organized by MBA schools to figure out exactly where they might have erred.
This is just another reaffirmation of the fact that business schools do promote re-applications who attain success in the second go. In fact Wharton has previously hinted that re-applicants have an edge over the rest of the pool of applicants.
These sort of sessions are usually brief making it imperative that you make preparations well in advance. List out the pointed questions that will maximize the benefits you get from the session. The following questions are the sort you want to ask.
- Were my quantitative abilities a factor? If it is so how to prove my abilities
- Were my career goals wanting in clarity?
- Are there any issues with the reasons for which I intend to complete the MBA program?
- Please let me know the weak areas of my application and your advice to address them respectively?
