Frequently Asked Questions about Admissions

This is the million-dollar question (or $200,000 since that’s what a lot of graduate degrees cost).

And the answer is: EVERYTHING.

Universities want interesting professional experiences, a strong academic background, cultural exposure, meaningful volunteer work, thoughtful self-analysis, awareness of global trends, clear career goals, soft skills, hard skills, and all skills.

No single thing will get you into school. But a little bit of everything will. That’s why you need to really analyze every aspect of who you are and what you’ve done, and then you have to figure out how to convey that in an application.

That’s usually where consulting comes in.
