1Degree App MBA and Entrepreneurial Journey

I just listened in full to the interview with Max Huc and Sam Boochever at Darden. This interview was very insightful of what it's truly like to run a business while working fulltime on school.
I have not yet reached the level of my educational goals to apply for my MBA, however it is in my future consideration. Hearing this interview has better helped me to outline an appropriate timeframe for me to attain my own educational goals. I don't think I've ever had access to an interview so valuable to my future plans.

The questions asked by the interviewer were very helpful and uncovered a lot of opportunities as well as risks in trying to engage in both endeavors simultaneously.
The interviewees were extremely articulate and gave very honest responses. You could hear their excitement and dedication in every answer. I wholeheartedly enjoyed listening to this.

Thank you for sharing. I look forward to hearing many more.

Invaluable for a prospective MBA student

This podcast is a must for any prospective MBA student. Every MBA episode has great tips and unique guests. Where else can you find interviews with Admission Directors, students, and alums from the top schools all in one place? Linda also has episodes where she interviews fellow consultants and provides a deep dive on specific topics (such as overcoming weaknesses). I highly recommend this podcast for any MBA hopeful. Thank you Linda for producing an amazing podcast!

Golden MBA Advice!

Admissions Straight Talk is and has always been great listen and a wellspring of information. This weeks podcast was amazing and I found myself listening to it twice so that I could jot down some of the notes provided by her guest - a former MBA adcom member. Esmeralada was so real, down to earth and gave practical advice for future MBA applicants. Listening to her made you feel like she was rooting for you to succeed! Keep up the great work!
