Is MBA admission as competitive as law school admission?

It's just different. Numbers are everything for law school admissions, while work experience is everything for top MBA admissions.

my guess is it's a little easier, assuming you have decent work experience. mba programs seem to be increasingly cash cows, with T50 programs like Indiana U and UC Davis creating satellite and online MBA programs. so in that sense, mba admissions should be getting easier (but probably increasingly expensive) over time.

MBA is all about the GMAT and work experience...I spoke to UPenn MBA Admissions and the staff member said its something they just glance at.

Law schools are def mainly about numbers. (LSAT and GPA)
