For MBA apps will it hinder or help you if you provide a list of other MBA programs you are looking into besides the one you are currently applying for?

Wondering if listing them out when prompted on the app will make me a more attractive/competitive candidate to be offered more scholarships to incentivize me to accept their offer OR will they be more inclined to not provide an acceptance letter because they know you’re less inclined to join the school and want to protect their metrics.

What school’s app asks that???

Doesn’t the official gmat score report have the list of schools you’re sending your gmat to?

The school's don't know where else you send scores.

Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification.

What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?

During the VMAs last night there was a car commercial and all I have to say is that if your brand is picking a 5 year old Sia song that didn’t even chart too well as a song for a NEW commercial, you need to tap into culture a little bit. I’m begging for a world where we stop using songs like this and Roar by Katy Perry as the standard backing tracks for boring ads.
