    Mr. 2+2 Filipino Social Entrepreneur – Thanks for posting your profile. Susan Cera here from Stratus.

    Despite your GMAT being below the average, I suspect HBS may really like your profile. Your initiative in creating a social enterprise to support migrant workers is commendable. The fact that you intend to work in a family business in tech and continue to give back to your community by supporting others will play well. You are definitely different than the typical 2+2 candidate going into consulting or ibanking.

    In your 20 years, you have already shown a habit of leadership and demonstrated that you are an engaged community citizen. Well done.

    Wishing you all the best as you put the finishing touches on your essay!
