Episode 162: Wire Taps—Reapplication Strategy, Casting too Wide a Net, and Decision Dilemmas

This week, Alex and Graham travel to Southeast Asia while touting a review from a listener in Thailand and evaluating a Malaysian applicant who needs a reapplication strategy (and who apparently likes cooking while tuning into WireTaps). They then turn their attention to a consultant in NYC who needs a bit of a confidence boost due to a below-average GPA (and who apparently listens to WireTaps in the shower). Shifting gears, our hosts dig into a dilemma from a candidate with admissions offers from Vanderbilt ($92K), Georgetown ($20K), and Georgia Tech (~$20K). The dilemma? This candidate has an aversion to landing in the Northeast/Mid-Atlantic, is drawn to the big-city advantages of Atlanta, has a partner in Nashville, and some warm & fuzzies for the Owen folks they have met. This episode also marks the official kick-off for the 2021-22 application cycle, as HBS announces deadlines and an essay prompt. Finally, if you have an offer to attend business school this fall, please take a moment to complete our admitted students survey: http://bit.ly/MBAadmitsurvey. This episode was recorded in Paris, France and Cornwall, England. It was produced by Dennis Crowley in West Philadelphia. Our sponsor is Carnegie Mellon University's Tepper School of Business.
