Candidate:

Mr. AI Product Manager

About Me:

I am a Senior AI Product Manager in a startup which connects AI with photography (the company has raised so far more than 300 million dollars in multiple funding rounds). I also have experience working as a Data Product Owner and in sales for a big tech company. My GMAT is on the lower side (700) and I have exhausted all my attempts.

Sadly, however, I am not all that optimistic about Harvard for you. There are multiple reasons for this but I also do not want to discourage you but rather to convince you to expand your range of MBA programs beyond the most elite business schools.

    The reasons you face to tough time:
