I don't think there will be more "friendly" schools. These schools just have slots for this category of candidates, and they are going to try and fill them with the best candidates. At the end of the day, a lot of it comes down to how you compare to the other Big 4 kids that are applying to the program.

I don't think there is a clear answer to this. Every school values different things (e.g., CBS for GMAT, HBS for diverse / brand name work experience & leadership, Kellogg for diversity & fit). So go with the ones that fit you the best!

Thank you! This is helpful!

Way to go! Would you be able to share stats and years of experience? Also a b4 kid considering R2 🙂
