Common Questions From Helpless, Hapless & Hopeless MBA Applicants

“There’s no such thing as a dumb question.”

You’ve probably heard that avowal before. But you know where it eventually leads. Anxious Amy will twist an archaic point into a deal-breaker. Calculating Carl will ask the same question (in different ways) until he hears his right answer. And Senseless Steve will inquire about scenarios that no one could possibly predict.

Yes, there are dumb questions. Whether they violate common sense or deal in complexity or obscurity, they reflect insecurity and a lack of preparation – two no-no’s among adcoms.

Wondering what questions not to ask (and why)? Check out this post from long-time reader Sassafras below.
