Demystifying the MBA Application, by Paola Garcia

What really stood out to me this weekend was how amazing WE ARE. When asked by the Associate Dean for Questrom, “Why are you considering an MBA?” most of us answered, for IMPACT and CHANGE. The next leaders of tomorrow are obtaining an MBA for these reasons…how amazing is that?

The MLT summer seminar took place in the beautiful city of Boston the weekend of June 20th. We were graciously hosted by our partner schools, Babson College and Boston University.
Some of my favorite moments of the weekend include (but are not limited to):

  • One-on-one speed networking sessions with Admissions Officers (AO), including on the spot feedback from AO’s
  • Admissions panel with AO’s on their advice for demystifying the application process
  • School fair with MLT partner schools 
BU School Fair

Let’s take a quick moment to highlight – US!
