Congrats, Maddy! I'm also applying to Katz, (taking the GMAT on Jan, 15)

Any advice on the program? Was your undergraduate work impressive, GMAT breakdown?

I have 5 years experience, 2 in the military and 3 in private banking. I'm hoping my essays can weigh heavily on my outcome. (Also GMAT)

Hi rj32s,

Sorry for the late reply.

My GMAT break down was Quant 46 and Verbal 34

I also hold MS from Arizona State University. Probably it gave me some edge.

I got good feedback about katz overall. Especially their one year program is world class.
