Chat with a Stern Alumni

I had the chance to talk with a brilliant friend from the University of Michigan. She just finished her MBA at stern. CONGRATS!!!! Below are some highlights from the chat

What criteria did you use to decided what schools to apply to?
  • Class size ( 450 or less). I wanted a small intimate class
  • Ranking
  • Making sure the firm/company I wanted to work for recruited at the school
  • Extracurricular Clubs
  • Reading class descriptions to see if the classes sounding exciting/interesting.
How did you prepare for the GMAT? Any tip?
  • First took a class (Kaplan). It kept me on track with studying.
  • Used Official Guide to study.
  • Series of practice exam. With my hectic schedule, I would sometimes break it up the practice exams if I did them during the week. Did quant one day and verbal the next.
What’s are some of the BEST things about bschool?
  • How diverse it is. Everyone has a different professional background. (opera singer in class)
  • Everyone is really smart
  • Professor and student dynamics. Professors are very approachable and helpful.
  • So many things to be involved in. People are culture curious. Friends from all over the world. Official school sponsors trips
  • Nice to feel like you have so many options as far as professional careers.
