Ding Analysis

the road to yes sometimes leads through no

You did everything right. You excelled at work, outpaced your peers, engaged in your community, earned competitive test scores, secured great recommendations, wrote compelling essays, and applied in a timely manner. With some programs, you may even have obtained an invitation to interview. Yet, when all is said and done, you did not get accepted to the program or programs you most desired. Why? What else could you have possibly done? And if you had, would it have made any difference?

These and other questions will be answered in your Maxx Associates ding analysis, during which you will explore:

  • The image you portrayed
  • The competition you faced
  • The messages you conveyed
  • Your choice of programs
  • Your fit for the programs you chose

Looking back is the first step toward moving ahead. Through this one-on-one consultation, you will also gain a sense of the value, validity, and methodology of applying again:

  • Is it worth the time, effort, and cost to reapply?
  • Are the same programs realistic targets?
  • What alternatives might you consider?
  • How do prior outcomes impact future outlook?
  • Is a graduate degree still relevant to your goals?

Armed with this knowledge, you can make an informed decision on whether, when, and how to reapply. Turn to Maxx Associates for an enlightening ding analysis as you seek to turn yesterday’s no into tomorrow’s yes.
