Road to Business School: Boston

Road to Business School Boston is tonight.

We’re entering our second week of Road to Business School events.  MBA applicants from Chicago, Los Angeles, and San Francisco have already had the chance to speak to admissions officers from their favorite schools.  The seeds of next years bschool admits are being sown.

For example, following the San Francisco event last night, an applicant told me that he had had the chance to make a strong connection with the admissions officers at INSEAD and IESE.  A few minutes further into our conversation, the rep from IESE walked by and made the effort to personally thank this applicant for coming.  The attendee told her to enjoy dinner at Salt House, a great local restaurant.  He had obviously made a very personal connection that led him to have that knowledge.  Perhaps he even recommended the restaurant.  This is the kind of connection that, along with a winning application and a strong GMAT score, leads to an offer from your favorite school.  And these are happening all the time at Road to Business School events.

Tonight the Road to Business School series comes to Boston.  The full details of time and location are below.  Also, take a look at the list of schools to see who’s coming and check out the schools’ Twitter feeds for some quick research to help you start conversations.  Finally, throughout the event, we will be live-tweeting from @KaplanGMATprep using hashtag #RTBS.  Tweet something you learn at the event or instagram a photo of your experience tonight using hashtag #RTBS for a chance to win a GMAT Data Sufficiency on Demand.
