What is the bowl’s view on the key differences b/w CBS’s Sept and Jan intake?

Jan means you don’t get a summer to intern. It’s best for people who want the MBA but are pretty dead set on going back to where they came from, but not great if you wanna change jobs

-If you want to recruit for industries that take most of their hires from interns (consulting/banking), much better choice
-More standard classmate mix comparable to other peer schools

-Not suited for most summer internship recruiting
-Very different classmate mix, 70%+? international with a much heavier mix of sponsored consultants and wealthy family biz ppl, if you’re a standard American person you’re actually the minority...

They’re together from an academic perspective but from a social aspect there is somewhat of a divide given the different experiences that each cohort goes through (orientation, recruiting, etc.).

I’ll be honest - slacking on my GMAT / EA prep in between of job hunt, but I really want to apply to top schools this year for EMBA. Is there any online paid / unpaid tutorial that you highly recommend to crack in ~3 months? Please guide 🙏🏼


Just reminding everyone that no one here is an admissions expert and while we can predict chances, ultimately it's a crapshoot and none of us can know for sure what will happen. Shoot your shot - you miss 100% of the shots you don't take!

Anyone have any insight on how competitive the IB vs Consulting recruiting processes are at M7 B-Schools?


First gmat attempt - 590, online experience sucked but whatever. Second attempt today and got a 700. Never stop grinding 🥲
