All of us who put together this podcast are on a mission to help MBA applicants shine their brightest when applying to business school.

This podcast is NOT ONLY for members of the queer community. It is a must-listen for ANY APPLICANT who might not feel as if they are part of the mainstream and/or who has a unique perspective to share.
