Thoughts on working in admissions for a top 20 MBA program? Want to eventually work 100% remote and feel like a move to admissions consulting would be super easy after 5-10 years.

I worked in the deans suite of a top 7 mba program during undergrad. It was ok but idk why anybody would choose school admin work over consulting pay

Working in admissions vs admissions consulting are two different things...which do you want to do? Personally think working for the school would be way cushier but not a particularly remote work-friendly job since you might need to host students for on campus events and travel to interview

Oh okay, rereading your post and understanding it better now. Admissions in school is an interesting gig for sure because it’s almost like organization building. As to the next transition to admissions consulting- Sure, if that’s what you want to do but I personally don’t like admissions consulting because I think it’s almost an exploitative industry that preys on the insecurities of applicants to overcharge them. But hey, it’s still lucrative depending on how good you are and not everyone holds my view.

Actually the administrators in academia can pull in some guap. The provosts at private schools make more than $200k base.

Thoughts on Razorfish Health NYC? Or switching to health in general? I'm moving to NYC and looking to switch jobs (currently working remote for a Chicago agency).

If so, have you noticed this white defensiveness in your life?
