Sandy’s Analysis: I’m perplexed as I’m sure most folks would be by your ding. The only thing that does not compute here is why, given your MS in supply chain and job in that field, you really need an MBA degree.
In your next life, after you graduate from HYP with a 3.7, you should get a job at MBB (advising companies about supply chains) instead of getting an MS.
All that said, your essay linking family construction background to building something in hi-tech is usually the kind of BS they like. Maybe more tear-jerking stuff could have turned the tide here [I HOPE NOT BUT THAT IS KINDA MY THESIS]. E.G. was anyone ever injured, “Seeing uncle Mo hop around on this crutch after he fell of that scaffold, and not admit to how much pain he was in was one lesson, but another was after his death on pain killer overdose, I learned that we all need to open up to each other. etc.
I DO NOT WANT TO THINK JIVE LIKE THAT COULD HAVE FLIPPED THIS BUT IT MIGHT HAVE.
