Out of curiosity - do MBA applications ask for your race, gender, sexual orientation formally during the process?

Yep. I put Hispanic, female, and gay. Guaranteed acceptance.

They need to be able to differentiate so they can treat you equally 🙄

Good question, is it wise for an over represented race to not answer?

You have anything to hide? Also only gay people say it so they get an easy in...

They ask in the application but you can decline. If you are an overrepresented group it is probably wise not to answer, although they will know when you interview

On sexual orientation, not all MBA apps do.

^if that doesn't work I've got a can of black shoe polish. Hello scholarship😂

A1 last comment was kinda bad. Just because your a minority does not mean you have a better chance of getting into a school. I am sure Jared Kushner took someone's spot at Harvard since he was only an average student in highschool and his father happened to donate money to Harvard the year he was accepted. Just saying

@EY1 not sure what you're saying actually. Yes, legacies and donors have an easier in. But so do non (Cauc)asian races. There's studies out there that compare what hypothetical students need to have in terms of GPA and SAT scores to have an equal chance as their peers.

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring.

BIPOC who started working in healthcare advertising and eventually were able to leave, how’d you do it?

They either become immediately disinterested, or beam up and suddenly the interview is only about an open pharma role, which is more frustrating because if I want to stay in health I’d go for copy supervisor roles.
