Any idea how important are the video questions, comparing to other components of the application?


Hey Aringo,
In order to improve my quant skills before applying to an MBA program, should I take precalculus or calculus course? Does it matter if the courses are taken at a community college or should it be at a more prestigious school?
Thanks in advance.

Hello,

Wanted to get your opinion on something - do you think it is worthwhile to join an MBA program that is not in the Top 30, just for a scholarship?

Hi Aringo,
My GPA is below 80... does it ruin my chances of gaining admission into a Top 20 program?

seems like a smart choice, please let us know how it ended.


Yes, i believe it's true, i've heard it too. One more reason not to lie.

I also have some reservations regarding the importance of promotions. What if I'm an entrepreneur? I can't get promoted but it doesn't mean I'm not successful at what I do, right?


I think GMAC publishes those stats every year, will probably take a few more weeks.

You're right, in that case you should probably get more points, and regardless of this tool you should mention on your resume how much time the project lasted and how many people you managed.


Another option is having the recommender writing a general letter that answers all the questions.

Your profile is good but so is everyone else. These are top schools, very selective.
Don't lose hope, cheer up and try again next year or maybe even this year for other schools!

Regarding promotions, I was wondering if moving to a better position in another company (same industry) is considered promotion? or do you have to be promoted in the same company?


Also consider the phrasing of the questions - are they asking for "extenuating circumstances", or are they asking if you have anything else to tell about yourself?
