Minorities in Business school -question
To get into HBS/Columbia/Wharton....is the GMAT score/GPA/work experience needed to get into these schools the same as if you're not a minority?
The only reason I ask, is because I remember when I applied for various schools for undergrad...I (Hispanic) knew a few people who were minorities at my high school who got into some pretty notable schools. And I know for a fact that diversity had to play a role in their selection. I'm not sure if it's a double standard or what...but I would like to know if the same generally holds true for most MBA programs.
In the applicant pool are minorities competing with other minorities for a limited numbers of seats at the college? Or how exactly does the selection process work if you're a minority trying to get into a top school? Are some schools bigger on diversity then others? Any info would be great. Thanks
