Veritas Prep MBA Admissions Blueprint Designed to Help B-School Applicants Navigate the Increasingly Competitive Admissions Land

For the droves of MBA hopefuls clamoring to secure one of the limited seats in top business schools, the coming admissions season looks to be another intensely competitive one. While some applicants feel pressure to apply because of uncertain job situations, others have judged that the economy will almost certainly improve in two to three years, and are therefore gearing up to apply to business school now. The result? The 2009-2010 application season may prove to be yet another record-setter in terms of MBA admissions competitiveness.


“Widely regarded as a safe haven in times of economic distress, enrollment in an MBA program offers students the opportunity ride out the worst of the downturn as well as the ability to reenter the workforce as the economy starts to improve,” explains Scott Shrum, director of MBA admissions research at Veritas Prep, a leading GMAT prep and MBA admissions consulting company. “As a result, this year’s crop of applicants may face unprecedented competition for admission, and it will be crucial for prospective students to set themselves apart from a sea of similar-looking applicants.”


Veritas Prep’s MBA Admissions Blueprint can help tri-state area applicants strategically approach their candidacy and increase their chances of admission into leading MBA programs, whether they’ve just recently decided to apply to business school or have been planning their application for years. This exclusive event offers attendees the opportunity to spend a day with Veritas Prep's admissions experts, emerging from that time with the knowledge and tools necessary to assemble effective business school applications that are likely to result in admission.

The event, to be held June 20, 2009 at the Grand Hyatt New York in New York City, will commence with a general session lead by preeminent MBA admissions expert and co-founder/CEO of Veritas Prep, Chad Troutwine, which will offer proven strategies to navigate the MBA application process as a whole. The afternoon portion of the MBA Admissions Blueprint agenda will pair each attendee with an industry- leading business school admissions consultant for hour-long individual advice sessions, wherein students can:

  • Gather ideas for how to improve upon each part of the MBA application
  • Learn how an MBA admissions officer will evaluate their unique candidacy
