Why did you pick Olin? I am particularly keen on the school’s job placement rates and application process. The application process made a clear nod to the fact that not all applicants know precisely what they want to do after their MBA. My purpose to get an MBA is to transition into completely new positions in completely new industries. I view this purpose to be risky, but Olin’s career tracks and job placement rates give me confidence that I will succeed.
