Basics

Clear Admit’s values resources for students..First, as a resource, their website offers extensive information about individuals schools, up to and including the mean GMAT and GPA of applicants, class size, and even an analysis of essay topics. Even if you’re not planning to buy any of their services, it’s generally worth taking a look at the information they have available when deciding which schools to apply to.

The business end of their site provides a variety of guides. Most notable are the individual school guides. Clear Admit also has a series of general guides and school-specific interview explanations.

    The best part about clear admit is that it provides a no-frills description of how the process is going about. It really helped me choose colleges according to my GMAT score, you can see the admit information to various colleges as soon as they are out. Its really difficult to details about all the schools and what their closing GMAT score is, even if it not an exact science.

    The admissions consulting is limited but the site does provide a widely used forum for applicants to connect and network. I met some of the folks from the site in person and continued a relationship.

    Clearadmit has clearly distinguished itself as a go-to platform for end to end MBA application management. I researched clearadmit for interview guides, sample essays, application advice and admission status notification across the globe. I was able to see sizable amount of previous interviews for school I was applying for and I could interact with other prospective students applying.

    :

    Clear Admit was incredibly helpful in providing material to prepare for the interview. Past interview questions helped immensely and gave me a lot of confidence going into the interview. Seeelive updates from students getting acceptances/rejections also helped in determining when I would get “the call”.

    • MBA Program & Grad Year: Cornell 2019
    • Advice to current prospective applicants: Be yourself and be memorable! How is the student body under-indexed in what you have to offer?

    :

    ClearAdmit was an invaluable resource to me as I navigated the admissions and interview process. It really helped draw back the curtain on what to expect in terms of interview questions, timeline and the experience of other prospective students. I’d definitely recommend it to anyone interested in attending business school.

  10. 5 out of 5

    :

    ClearAdmit was the best resource I used to help navigate the MBA admissions interview process. They provided specific information for each school, which round and what to expect. The clarification on what these interviewers are looking for from each program and the Do’s and Don’t were particularly helpful. I also relied on the information submitted from other MBA applicants to gauge how long I would have to wait to hear back from the school after the interview. The format of the website also distinguishes it from other forums, which are unmoderated and sometimes difficult to moderate, but ClearAdmit makes it so that you can very clearly customize search for the program you applied for.

    • MBA Program & Grad Year: Columbia 2020
    • Advice to current prospective applicants: Make sure to think carefully about who you want to write your recommendations for you! Give them at least a month in advance and provide your own deadline to your recommenders. Ensure that you meet with them to discuss your goals and that you are all aligned on your career aspirations. This buy in is what the MBA admissions committee wants to see.

    :

    Clear Admit has great layout making the site very easy to navigate. I found their tiered approach to what admissions committees are looking for in order of importance very helpful in my attempt to formulate a plan. My application came together easily once I knew what was most important to concentrate on, especially since I was attempting to hit what was probably a slightly unrealistic application deadline.

    • MBA Program & Grad Year: Michigan Ross/2020
    • Advice to current prospective applicants: Set a date to start your GMAT prep earlier than you think you should...then start earlier than that.

    Great source for information about mba prisms and their culture, average score and employment statistics. Highly recommended for all research and for comparing profiles of admitted students and yourself.

    :

    The site provided a good snapshot of the backgrounds/aspirations of prospective mbas. while your story and application ARE unique, it’s helpful to get a feel for the caliber of students you’ll be interacting with.

    • MBA Program & Grad Year: Michigan Ross / 2019
    • Advice to current prospective applicants: (resubmitting because my advice didn't go through the first time). Definitely apply early if you can. R3 is tough. Also, advice for the site admins of mbainsight: Please make the text input boxes case-sensitive if the submitted comment is not going to be in all-caps.

    Clear admit is really helpful for interview prep by providing interview reports of recent applicants. My experience of interviews has been very consistent with what has been shared on the interview reports. Strongly recommended!

    • MBA Program & Grad Year: CBS
    • Advice to current prospective applicants: Although a common sense, it is easy to underestimate the importance of thorough preparation of interviews. mock with different people and practice with their feedback definitely helps.

    :

    this site is not only the most helpful site for mba students hopefuls but also the bane of your existence. because it is so helpful, you’re consistently on it and never doing work. i was constantly on livewire and checking the statuses of other students. but more importantly, the best part of livewire was the interview guides for each school. i would download each guide prior to my interviews and make sure that i have all the questions nailed down. i don’t think i would have been able to survive the mba process with this website!

    • MBA Program & Grad Year: University of Pennsylvania
    • Advice to current prospective applicants: do things in order. You don't need to rush if you have the luxury. do the gmats first, visit the schools/do your research second, then apply. if you're lucky enough to have an interview, talk to as many current students/alumni as possible so you can talk about it during the interview and it should also give you a feeling of the school's culture. try cold calling an alumni and you'll be able to see how strong the network is.

    I used the clear admit guide to research all of the top 10 business schools. The guide was very insightful. I then visited the schools of my choice. I was able to use the insights from the guide to really conduct due diligence on the respective schools.

    Also, clear admit has an interview guide. The guide not only provided frequently asked questions in business school interviews, but they provide thoughtful outlines on how to answer the questions.

    • MBA Program & Grad Year: MIT Sloan (2017)
    • Advice to current prospective applicants: You will be making a $200,000 investment in yourself. Would you buy a house without doing your due diligence? The same applies to be business school. Each school is unique so you must make sure that there's a fit between you and the intended business school.

    Clear Admit was extremely helpful in interview prep — being able to consolidate all the past interview questions and prepare answers based on them was an effective way of preparing for the HBS interview.

    • MBA Program & Grad Year: HBS '18
    • Advice to current prospective applicants: Each school is very different. Try to talk to as many current students and alumni as possible, to show to the school (via essays, interviews, etc) that you know exactly why that school is the best fit for you.

  24. 4 out of 5

    :

    Great site for real time updates. Many applicants check and update this site during important communication notifications (e.g. interview invites, acceptance/rejection). However, the data is skewed towards acceptance data versus rejection data. It is also much harder to access these days. You have to sign in to see any data which make it more difficult to navigate and use.

    • MBA Program & Grad Year: Yale SOM/2018
    • Advice to current prospective applicants: Take at least 3-6 months to understand all the schools and prepare the applications.
  25. 4 out of 5

    :

    Good advice for current applications which includes real time updates during throughout the application process. This site is widely used by application so it includes information for a range of schools. I trust the updates on the site from applications.

    Other side content provides a profile for each school so you can quickly compare the admission process across schools.

    • MBA Program & Grad Year: ASU/2018
    • Advice to current prospective applicants: Start the application process early. Work hard on the essays to make sure that they are well-written and polished! The interviews and admission will follow 

    I greatly appreciated the personal attention that I received while preparing for the GMAT. Through partnership with Veritas Prep, m y instructor was able to drill home some of the most important concepts that the GMAT tested for and allowed me to gain admission to and earn my MBA from Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business. As a military officer who was out of college for over 5 years, she was able to help me get back into the academic mindset and earn a competitive GMAT score and prepare my essays to demonstrate my value as a member of the Fuqua community.

    Great blog to understand the insider scoop on many MBA program. It is an unbiased source so provides more objective information on the potential. They also have many free resources, which help you compare schools.

    • MBA Program & Grad Year: Georgetown/2016
    • Advice to current prospective applicants: Speak to you passion - and make sure you are able to connect your past experiences with the reasons for your MBA, and goals post MBA. Also, if you are doing an MBA to go into entrepreneurship, think twice to see if the $100,000 + you will spend in two years would be better invested in your business

    I benefited greatly from a high-level guidance I received on how to approach answering the various essay questions for each application. The team helped me determine which parts of my story to include and how to deliver the greatest amount of information about me while still being clear and succinct.

    • MBA Program & Grad Year: Chicago Booth 2016
    • Advice to current prospective applicants: 1. Be very specific in answering each question. Even if you're not sure exactly what you want to do post-MBA, write a response that makes it seem like you are.2. Research the schools heavily. Your answer to "Why Stern" should reflect the fact that you've done your homework on the program.

    I used the ClearAdmit book which was very helpful in giving me a quick overview of the school as well as details about the school which are difficult to come across on the website and without talking to a lot of people from the school. Some of the tips regarding what each school looks for in its applicants was pretty useful to and you can craft your application on the basis positioning it differently for each school accordingly.
