I have exciting news to share! After nine months of taking tests, writing essays, a million coffee chats, interviews, and more, I’m over the moon to share that I’m attending business school this fall.
Applying for business school is a long, arduous process, so today I’m breaking down my experience and the tips and tricks I learned along the way. If you’re interested in applying for MBA programs, or want to know what I’ve been doing for the past nine months, listen on! It’s a pretty comprehensive and detail-oriented episode, so if this isn’t your cup of tea, skip this one and come back next week 🙂

Here’s what’s covered:
1:40 – Why Business School? (versus MPP/MPA/nothing)
7:35 – GRE vs GMAT
8:00 – Studying for the GMAT
13:00 – Things to do early on in the process
13:58 – Applying through The Consortium
15:39 – Making your List of Schools
21:43 – Writing Your Essays
24:55 – Should you hire an MBA consultant?
27:42 – What to do once your applications are submitted
27:57 – Interview Prep & Tips
31:55 – Deciding on a School!

Feel free to email me janekennedy@thesundaymonday.co if you have any questions about the process! I wouldn’t be here without the incredible support and encouragement of the people who went before me, and I’m here to pay it forward. Good luck!
