Why B-Schools Reject MBA Applicants
“Good judgment comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgment.”
You can’t argue with that observation. Just one problem: It leaves out the price you’ll pay for making a mistake. And mistakes come in forms other than bad judgment, including lack of self-awareness, preparedness, or impulse control.
Sadly, most people won’t point out your mistakes. “It’s uncomfortable,” they think. “It’s not my place.” “I don’t want to start a fight.” Instead, they leave you to repeat the cycle. In the case of an MBA application, you simply get a rejection letter. So much for lessons learned.
But was really behind that rejection letter? Last year, Accepted.com surveyed admissions directors from 13 MBA programs on what causes them to reject a candidate. From poor cultural fit to arrogance, most didn’t hold back. With interviews running and the second round applications coming due, what are some pitfalls you should avoid?
