Analyze the weaknesses in your MBA application, and transform your MBA application next year using the MBA Rejection Heatmap 


Do you know why you were rejected by schools?

  • Graduated with an MBA from Stephen M. Ross School of Business and served on the Admissions Committee as a student and an alumnus.
  • I worked in Strategy Consulting pre and post MBA. I’m now an alumnus of McKinsey & Company.
