What Accountants and Actuaries Should Say When They Apply To Elite Business Schools
When it comes to the raw stats, you would be hard pressed to find a better candidate for a highly selective business school than Victoria. With a quant score of 166 on the GRE and a verbal of 167, she’s above Harvard Business School’s average of 164 on both sides of the test. She boasts a 3.64 undergraduate grade point average, having majored in Spanish. But she also has a master’s degree in math.
Victoria works as an actuarial analyst for Triple A, the auto club organization that sells insurance and offers roadside assistance to stranded motorists. She was also on the varsity equestrian team in college, ran some track, and mentored students. Her goal: To get an MBA to leverage her current skills in data analysis at AAA and move into management consulting.
In this Friday’s With Sandy episode, HBSGuru Sandy Kreisberg evaluates chances at four top schools: Chicago Booth, Northwestern Kellogg, Michigan Ross, and IE Business School in Spain. He offers advice on how she can sharpen her presentation to highly selective business schools and increase her already strong odds of acceptance at those highly ranked MBA programs.
