Question on R2 strategy. I had not done any MBA app prep until after Halloween when I got a 760. I work in IB and my schedule makes it hard to put in quality time on the apps during the week. I planned to apply to Wharton/Booth/Kellogg/Ross but so far have only competed Kellogg essay 1. I don’t have a resume up to date. I don’t want to talk myself out of applying to Wharton but given the current lack of progress and slim odds at W, should I focus on a quality 3 apps at B/K/R?

Wharton and Booth basically have the same app. I personally did B first and just spent a day updating for W

Agreed, I did W first and the booth app was the same just changed a few details. Booth took a day or so

Ross is a cake walk

Also don’t drop the “best” school from your list! Unless you have to go to bschool next year, might as well shoot for the best ones (assuming you think it’s the best)

like

Agree with all of this. Also will add that I applied to Booth and Kellogg and had pretty much the same essay for the second prompts of each school, they are also very similar

I want to apply to top MBA programs but my decision to quit my job and attend will be highly dependent on if I get in to top programs or not.

FWIW I have a great relationship with the head of my previous group and think he would write me a great one.
