Hi everyone,

I am a 2017 undergraduate from MIT with a 4.4/5.0 GPA. Female, 23 years, of Indian descent.

I've scored 760 on GMAT with 50 quant/42 verbal.

I am currently at Microsoft as a Product Manager and received a promotion 15 months in.

I hope to apply for MBA programs at HBS, GSB, Kellogg, and Booth next Fall (2019) to matriculate in 2020.

Extracurricullarly, I am a performing artist so I am creative/artistic director and choreographer for a large 501c3 in my area and also travel to perform. I additionally tutor/consult high school students as education is a passion of mine.

Please let me know where you feel my package is lacking and my chances for these schools.

Hi there,

Thanks for writing! You have the makings of a strong, well-rounded profile that fits in with the top schools. For the schools you have listed, the average amount of work experience upon matriculation is 4-5 years, so your application may be even stronger if you apply in 2020 to enter in 2021 - it will allow you to make even more professional progress and build a strong relationship with recommenders who can attest to your performance, growth, and potential - additionally, the schools will be even more confident that you'll have insights to contribute to the classroom. However, the other option is to apply in 2019 and then, if it doesn't work out, reapply in 2020. Hope that helps a bit! :-)
