Hiya,

Thanks for posting. Certainly an interesting profile, and congrats on the strong GMAT. I would think you would have a number of examples of leadership, teamwork, and international experiences you could comment on and that you would be bringing to a potential b-school class, all of which will benefit you in the admissions process. I would say the biggest question at this point is WHY. If you can articulate clear reasons for why you want the MBA, and detail your shorter and longer term post-MBA goals, in addition to what you would bring to b-school, you should have a good shot at reputable b-school programs.

Hi there,

Of course HBS/Stanford/Wharton are going to be the top of the top.... so it's tough for all candidates even those with strong GMAT/background because there are so many OTHER well-qualified applicants out there as well. So those programs will always be a reach, but not impossible. (Keep in mind Stanford would be most selective as it's also a smaller class size than the other 2).

As for a consult, sure thing, you can schedule a free 30 min consult at https://www.mbamission.com/consult.php. I personally don't have much listed yet for the next 2 weeks given the holidays, but will list more time slots for January, and you're welcome to consult with any of our consultants of course, all of whom do the free consultations. Keep us posted on any other questions you have!
