Veteran Admissions Director Dawna Clarke to Host Free Q&A Session

Veteran Admissions Director Dawna Clarke to Host Free Q&A SessionRecently, news broke that Dawna Clarke, former director of admissions at both the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College and the Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia, has joined mbaMission’s team of elite admissions consulting professionals.

Now, we are proud to announce that Dawna will host her first exclusive event—a live online Q&A session, “Insights into the MBA Admissions Process,” on Wednesday, June 28 at 9 p.m. EDT.

For almost two decades, Dawna served as the director of admissions at two of the country’s leading MBA programs, interviewing thousands of candidates, reviewing tens of thousands of essays and recommendations, and acting as the final decision-maker on more than 60,000 MBA applications. Now, as mbaMission’s Chief MBA Strategist and a Senior Consultant, she is ready to tap into what she has learned from her many years of experience to help aspiring MBAs with their admissions-related questions.*

During this Q&A session, you will have the opportunity to directly ask Dawna any questions you may have about the process—including which exam to take, in which round to apply, and how to overcome a low GPA or GMAT score—and benefit from her firsthand insight into the admissions world so you can begin the process of submitting your best application.

We hope that you will join us for this valuable event that will be essential to your b-school planning. Space is limited! To enroll for free, click here.
