I managed to escape the office today as planned and I’m glad to be making progress on my profile and application strategy. So much subconscious thought has gone into this process so far, my pen literally exploded on the paper when I started writing.
I’m currently working through my background, past accomplishments and future goals, in order to discuss these with my consultants in the weeks ahead. I’ll be sharing more as we go along but thought I’d post my key takeaways from researching my three target schools, all of which I visited and also interviewed at MIT and Wharton.
This is the combined result of note-taking from speaking with admissions staff (one-on-one and general information sessions), professors, support staff, current students, alums and admission consultants. It is by no means complete, I may have put my own spin on things and some stuff may well have changed, but I hope it will give you some fresh perspective on these schools.
