Visiting your target MBA program is a necessary and extremely helpful tool when crafting a winning application, but most people are strapped for the time to do so. Often, it’s only the holidays which provide the required extra time to make a visit in person.
They say it’s not what you know, but who you know that makes the difference. This also can be the case with MBA applications. Are you leveraging people on the inside to increase your odds of admission?
Applying for MBA programs means lots of contact with others. Students, Alumni, Faculty and Admissions representatives will all float in and out of your schedule during the peak months. Don’t forget to follow up with them if you want to make the best impression.
Making the most of your MBA campus visits is a paramount gesture when choosing where you want to apply. If you think simply stopping by and walking around is going to do the trick, think again.
As the 2017 academic year winds to a close, students all over the world are preparing themselves for final exams. With a similar amount of angst and tension, hopeful business school applicants are beginning to prepare as well, but instead of taking tests, they will be writing applications.
One of the most important things you can do to prepare for this, is to visit each of your target schools in person.
