Ranked #2 MBA Admissions Consultant of 2022
Updated: Feb 1
Huge news. Sam Weeks Consulting was ranked Number 2 on the Poets&Quants Global Top 20 MBA Admissions Consultants 2022 list! As I crack open a well-earned beer to celebrate, I'm thinking about all the wins - big and small - we had throughout the year.
Most SWC clients were gunning for business school scholarships. Rising MBA fees and living costs mean that applicants are increasingly seeking financial aid. Last year, my client were awarded $434,000 between them in scholarships, and it looks like the number will be even higher this year.
More women are enrolling in top MBA programs than ever. Brilliant. Last year almost half of my clients were women and this seems to be a growing trend.
The average GMAT score of SWC applicants last year was 696 and is up again in the 2021-2022 cycle. This seems to be part of a wider global trend where the average GMAT score is increasing, according to school data.
SWC clients mainly applied to M7 MBA programs in the US, plus INSEAD, London Business School and Oxford Said Business School in Europe.
Top of my FAQ list was uncertain prospective applicants looking for an objective assessment of the strength of their profiles. Their next question was when to start the MBA application process. I'll tell you what I told them - start early! Spread out your prep, editing and interview sessions with SWC, rather than contacting us when everything is "finished".
"...a no-BS approach, even if it was not what I wanted to hear."
