I only applied and was accepted to one deferred MBA program (Darden) my senior year. It comes with a $30k scholarship, but at this point I only find an MBA to be worth it if it’s mostly covered. I have a 710 gmat that’s good for a couple more years, is it worth retaking to see if I could be eligible for more scholarships? At that point, should I just apply to more schools if I retake?

How does updating your application work? If I submit apps to schools in R1, and then get promoted in the early fall, is it possible to amend the application to reflect that?
What are my chances for a T15/Insead/LBS if my gpa is really low? 2.88/4 with a first class honours because aussie bsc (3+1), did pretty well for my final year, biomed researcher turned data analyst + consultant

How much experience is recommended before applying? I’m 2 years out of undergrad and have been working in consulting at Big 4 since graduation. Aiming for M7 and interested in Data & Analytics and Finance.
Is it really that hard to get into an M7? It seems like a lot of people with decent grades, decent GMAT, decent work experience get in no problem
