Just Got Dinged? Ask Sandy Why

RejectedThis week has been the biggest week for Class of 2018 hopefuls. Yesterday, Wharton and UCLA Round 2 admits received invitations and dings. Today (March 30), Harvard Business School and Stanford’s Graduate School of Business release their Round 2 decisions.

There will be plenty of good news in emails and phone calls from those schools, but a lot more bad news as thousands of round two applicants get rejected from these prestigious MBA programs.

As we did in round one (see story here), we’ve asked Sandy Kreisberg, founder of HBSGuru.com and a leading MBA admissions consultant, to do a quick appraisal of your ding.

If you would like Sandy to explain why your candidacy didn’t quite pass muster, just post your profile, your GPA, GMAT, company information, and any other facts you think made your application different. The more detail you provide, including what you wrote in your essay to HBS, the easier it will be for Sandy to determine why HBS, Stanford, or Wharton turned you down.
