The first question any would-be MBA candidate has in the journey to business school is this one: Can I get into a highly ranked MBA program?

It’s a legitimate question. Many of the most elite applicants are already in jobs that pay more than $75,000 a year. Many other candidates are not from gold-plated prestige firms or undergraduate feeders to the best business schools. Many more have a below-average GPA and standardized test score for the schools they are targeting.

That’s why Handicapping Your Elite MBA Odds, with HBSGuru.com’s tell-it-like-it-is, no-holds-barred Sandy Kreisberg has long been one of the most popular features on the site. He’s smart, witty, entertaining, and most importantly, provides a brutally honest assessment of a person’s chances at their target MBA programs.
