  • The MBA Gatekeeper At McDonough

    When going through the application process for a top business school, it’s a good idea to avoid annoying those who are making the ultimate decisions. It’s best not to spam the entire dean’s suite during a holiday break asking for an admissions response. And it’s advisable to avoid stalking the LinkedIn accounts of 50 alums from your top school and demanding the head of admissions put you in contact with each one. Indeed, applicants to Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business have committed these transgressions – and both received a ding, according to Shari Hubert, associate dean of MBA admissions. What Hubert does recommend is deep reflection on your personal strengths and weaknesses, and working those to your advantage. And if you’re applying to McDonough (or any other B-school) it’s a good idea to show respect toward the staff and the process.
