While American business schools value the diversity of their student body, applicants from China and India have difficulties getting into those programs. This is due to the high application rate from those areas compared to students from other countries and even U.S. students. To gain an edge Chinese and Indian applicants should strive to have a higher GMAT score. The application essay should be clear and concise. While highlighting quantifiable achievements, an applicant should also sell him-/herself. If an interview is part of the application process, it’s good to practice maintaining eye contact, firm handshake, and western body language.
