What are some of the better mba application prep groups? Particularly for the essay portions if possible, money is not an issue if it can improve my chances for M7.

Is it even possible to get HSW with a low GPA (3.3-3.5 range) if you’re an ORM guy? Even if you went to top 20 undergrad, top GMAT (780-800), good work experience (top consulting firms+FAANG)?

If people defer their start dates to MBA programs from fall 2020 to fall 2021 cus of covid-19, will the number admitted for those now applying for fall 2021 be hampered by this?

Anyone have any advice on how to start looking at student loans? I’m hoping to not only compare lenders but more generally understand the terminology, repayment options, etc.

Why is it harder to get a raw score in verbal vs quant. I.e. my streaks and number correct are way better in verbal yet I can’t break 40

Waitlisted at 4 of the 5 schools that I applied to (accepted to the 1 safety school). Frustrated to be so close yet not quite good enough. So incredibly frustrated and disheartened.
