April 5: MBA Admissions Myths Destroyed (Kaplan – New York)

With the advent of chat rooms and blogs, armchair “experts” often unintentionally propagate MBA admissions myths, which can linger and undermine an applicant’s confidence. Some applicants are led to believe that schools want a specific “type” of candidate and expect certain GMAT scores and GPAs, for example. Others are led to believe that they need to know alumni from their target schools and/or get a letter of reference from the CEO of their firm to get in. Join Jeremy Shinewald, founder of mbaMission, as he debunks these and other myths, strives to take the anxiety out of the admissions process and refocuses you on your applications. A Q&A session with Jeremy will follow the presentation.
