  • mbaMission | Odds Assessment: 5%

    Hi, it’s Nisha from mbaMission. It sounds like you’ve had some great impact at your company, and the 750 GMAT score is solid. A couple things to note:

    – Your post-MBA career goals of VC/PE are not realistic given that you don’t have a finance background (but GM certainly is)
    – Stanford is extremely competitive, with an acceptance rate around 6% or so. The students I’ve worked with successfully on this program have some sort of “wow” factor – impressive trajectory at top organizations, extracurricular leadership, compelling personal story.

    Mr. AIESEC Alum – Thanks for posting your profile. Susan here from Stratus.

    Your goals are somewhat vague and very broad. Take time to reflect on what motivates you and the impact that you would like to make in the future. This introspection process will help as you craft your …
