Hi any GMAT/GRE waivers this year?
Guest- Ori Levi
6/09 08:43PM
thanks for answering these questions
Can I take the GRE instead of the GMAT? I think this test is "better" for my skills . is there any advantage to the GMAT?
Guest- Inbar
6/09 08:44PM
Taya, do you have fewer slots in your class due to deferrals from last year?
Taya Sapp
6/09 08:45PM
Hi Noam, we'll be making an announcement about alternatives to taking the test soon
but there is likely to be an alternative to taking the test again this year, you would still need to demonstrate quantitative skills that you have from other experiences
Hi Ori - of course! Please take the test you think would suit you best
Hi Inbar - do you mean the class starting this fall? We did have some deferrals, but there wasn't a significant impact on the number of people we were able to admit.

Can you share about the school’s culture and how it comes to reality in the school’s programs and curriculum?
Guest- Gal
6/09 08:59PM
Hi, I am new to the MBA world. I know GMAT is the first step, but do MBA programs look for other aspects besides GMAT, GPA and good professional experience (I work very hard and didnt have a chance to volunteer...)
Taya Sapp
6/09 09:01PM
Hi Gal! Welcome! We review your application holistically, so we'll try to get a sense of your fit with our academics through GMAT, GPA, work experience. We'll try to understand your professional accomplishments and experiences from your resume & recommendation letter, and then also get a sense of your passions and goals through your essays.
Volunteering isn't required, but we like to get to know you, what you care about & how you spend your time both at work and outside of work.
I'd highly recommend talking to current students to get a sense of the school culture - we have 300+ student ambassadors and you can reach out to them through this website:
You're also welcome to join our zoom chat later during this event where a student will be present:
And we're having an event where you can chat with Israeli Alumni on Monday:

Taya Sapp
6/09 09:08PM
Hello Ofir, of course! We have a very active partners club and she would be welcomed by the school and your classmates here.
