Handicapping A Big Four Applicant’s Odds

In this, the fourth Facebook Live edition of Fridays With Sandy, MBA admissions consultant Sandy Kreisberg of HBSGuru.com conducts a mock interview and assesses the odds of an MBA candidate who has his sights set on a slew of leading business schools. This white male graduated from a Little Ivy and works in risk assurance for a Big Four accounting firm. He was an Eagle Scout and played varsity football at his college for three years.

His undergraduate grade point average, at 3.2, is slightly below the average for his target schools, however. His 720 GMAT is pretty much in line with hit targets which including MIT Sloan, Yale SOM, Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management, Duke Fuqua, UVA Darden, and UT-Austin McCombs.

Tune in to our Facebook page for Friday’s With Sandy at 2 p.m. EST for more live mock interviews and handicapping assessments. Follow our page to get notices of our Facebook Live events!
