This time last year I was studying for GMAT while putting very long hours at my Big4 job in NYC and luckily was able to pass the exam by the end of summer. I know some of you guys are currently in my shoes trying to pass the exam, determine which business schools you want to apply to, and evaluate your stats and fit at your dream schools.
I left my job last week and will leave the US in a few weeks to travel internationally before b-school starts. Since I have some free time now, I wanted to do this AMA to answer any questions you may have on any part of the application process to top MBA programs. Ask any questions in the comments and I should be able to respond on the same day or within a day.
