The MLT MBA Prep application is open

mltFriends, colleagues and readers.  Just a quick note that the MLT MBA Prep Application is open.  I am an alumni of the program and I highly recommend it.

The Round 1 deadline is October 27th and the Round 2 deadline is December 1st.  There will not be a Round 3 this year.  So be sure to get your applications in on time.

MLT has already received 1,000+ name referrals!  This basically means people who may have never applied without MLT being given the name.  So you should be sure to get on the list as well. Let me know how I can help.

Deciding between round 1 and round 2?  Then I’ll reiterate something I’ve said over and over to applicants I work with.

If you are considering applying in either Round 1 or Round 2, the general rule is to apply when your application is best.  Historically applicants apply heavily in both rounds, but slightly more people tend to wait until round 2.  My personal advice is that you should on apply when you can put your best foot forward but on the margin, earlier is better.

Hi Jeremy I am applying for Round 2 of the MLT Prep Program. I would love a referal from you! I had no idea that was even an option. Also, as far as the video question, can you give me insight on how to approach this part of the app? Also, my background is very diverse from industries and even undergraduate schools. I have been to a total of 5 schools and it took me 12 years to complete my BS in Business Admin-Accounting. So, as you can see it is by no means traditional. Your thoughts?

Hi Gabriela:

Thanks for your message. I may have used the referal too loosely. While referrals/nominations are usually good things (across all contexts), everyone will need a strong application to get into MLT. Given your enthusiasm and proactive message, I am sure you have what it takes. MLT and MBA programs often choose more traditional candidates (4 year college + work), nontraditional candidates with the right drive and work ethic tend to find success as well.

Let me know if you want to talk through your options. Happy to help however I can.
