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?

Let's say I start a new job sometime mid June, but am applying for Fall 2021 R1 sometime around September of this year. Would it be acceptable to use my mentors from my current firm as my LoR?

The online gmat doesn’t let you cancel your scores is there actually any disadvantages to this from an applicant perspective (what if I get really low on it and then do better later etc.)

Got 740 Gmat online (first time). Aiming for 750+ Is it worth the time to retake the exam? How much difference will it make if my goal is Harvard / Stanford?

When folks on here talk about work experience offsetting low undergraduate GPA, what do they mean? What type of experience would offset a low GPA,assuming a 730+ gmat?

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

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
