Has anyone come across MBA admissions stats for black applicants to top schools?

Hmm those stats are difficult to obtain because they usually lump us in w/ other URMs.

Ah, I’d love to see stats with other URMs as well. Wondering if there are threads or online communities of URMs posting their stats and acceptances. Similar to this, but for MBA programs.

Having done MBA admissions consulting as a side hustle, there are various boards where people will post these stats, etc.. although I haven't seen any specific to URM.

I can say that the GMAT is one of the biggest hurdles. A few years ago I heard a stat that said basically less than 1,000 URM score above 650 on the GMAT in any given cycle.

I wouldn’t rely on this (especially at top schools). My advice to people is to always shoot for at least the school average. It’s not required to get in, but it’s a data point that you can control so why do anything else

If that means you have to be a hermit for 3-4 months, so be it. Your future self will thank you.

Never been a fed. I've heard that once you make a cert (e.g., GS-13) the gov can bring you in at the same pay as you were making in industry (match base pay) as long as you have pay stubs and the pay falls within one of the steps for that grade... Is this true??? Agency dependent?

Thoughts on a PT MBA (Kellogg, HAAS, Booth) vs. T14 full time MBA. I am a consultant in S& that makes over $200k+ a year right now and will make $300+ in 2 years or so (will be SM by then). If I left PwC for a full time MBA, I feel like I am setting myself back (e.g., full time MBA, maybe switch to MBB associate, etc. - which is an upgrade on prestige and a downgrade on comp.) Primary reason for the MBA is to get into a CXO role of a PE backed company someday.
