Post MBA Goal:

I am hoping to go back to school to build on my personal development skills and make the transition to a leader in the workplace. A deferred MBA acceptance will give me more more flexibility rather than doing the traditional IB to PE stint.

Target School: Wharton

Status: Open

Considering: Harvard, Chicago Booth, Kellogg

From what I’ve seen, the deferred admissions programs tend to look for a few things: academic horsepower, intrinsic leadership (you just can’t help stepping up), and intense passion for something. So, my concern with your odds lies with the last factor – I’m not sure what your passion is. (If you’re not sure yet, that’s 100% OK – but then you might be better off applying later when you have …
