Wondering about the pros of deferred admissions programs? Alex breaks it all down for you!
Hey everybody, it’s Alex from Prep MBA.
I wanted to talk to you today about deferred admissions, which is becoming increasingly popular for college students trying to get into a top MBA program.
Many programs offer this and they’re not just looking for Business majors, Econ majors, or people who’ve had traditional internships in consulting and banking. They’re looking for STEM folks, more women, people of color, and other diversity goals. So that’s the first thing.
Second, it’s a great risk-free way to lock up admission to an MBA program. And then, for the next two to four or five years, you can take risks with your career and do some things that maybe you would not have done because you have that guaranteed admission.
Sometimes, I’ve seen people get accepted, have a job going into post-undergraduate life, and can leverage the acceptance to trade up and even get a better job, right? So that happens as well.
Really, it’s not a risk. If you don’t get in, you can reapply in two years, three years, or four years, and enough time will have elapsed that you’re really a new candidate with a clean look.
So, check out deferred MBA admissions and happy to help, of course.
