    Admissions expert David Petersam discusses the basics of the MBA application process.

    David Petersam: Hi, I am David Petersam. I am the President and Founder of Admissions Consultants, a consulting firm that helps aspiring business school applicants. Today, I am going to be answering a lot of commonly asked questions about the business school application process, but first, let me introduce myself and tell you a little bit about me. I have received my MBA from the University of Chicago and while there, I volunteered in the admissions office. I helped the school reach accept-reject wait list decisions on applicants of the program and I have a first hand perspective on what the schools truly seek from successful business school applicants. Today, we have a whole team of MBA consultants with a wide variety of specializations. Collectively, they have made over 100,000 accept-reject wait list decisions and each year, we work with well over 1,000 MBA applicants that are applying to the world's top business schools.
