  • The MBA Exchange Odds Assessment: 45%

    Hi Mr. Healthcare Fanatic! This is Talon Rindels, Senior Admissions Consultant at The MBA Exchange.

  • Stratus Admissions Counseling | Odds Assessment: 25%

    Hi, it’s Jennifer Jackson from Stratus Admissions. Don’t let the 25% chance discourage you — that’s well above the average admit for HBS of 10%! You have so much in your profile that will appeal to HBS. The very strong GMAT will stand out and combination of consulting and product development all under the healthcare umbrella will be compelling. The GPA is a bit under the average but shouldn’t be an issue given you had a double major at a great school. It’s also great to see some of the extracurriculars tied to your passion of innovation in healthcare. You have a solid, crisply worded ST goal and LT goal that helps connect the dots. Be sure in your essay to really dig into the …
