  • John A. Byrne, P&Q Founder & Editor-In-Chief | Odds Assessment: 35%

    Rarely have I seen an analyst at a wealth management firm describe himself the way you do: “My expertise lies in data analytics, visualization, and storytelling.” That is a powerful combination of skills. As Alex Min of The MBA Exhange notes, you are a poet and a quant. Your undergrad degree from Colgate and your stats are all in line for Kellogg, along with the fact that you rowed in college at a division 1 level. That is one of the ultimate team sports in my book. Your chances at Kellogg, which has an admit rate of 26%, all hinge on whether those three skills you cite are apparent to the admissions staff. Because that is what you need to put your application over the …

  • The MBA Exchange | Odds Assessment: 65%

    With a professional background that touches hand-on PM plus strategy, and spans data analytics and story telling, you’re both a Poet AND a Quant! That said, you’re a bit young and your Analyst title is common, so be sure to convey your work experience with strong examples of your tangible impact — and choose caring recommenders who will back it up. Your post-MBA goal is rather vague and doesn’t do justice to the rigor of your experience. Why small businesses as a target market when you could leverage your big corporate roots? Your degree in econ from Colgate with a nice GPA and competitive GMAT mean that your academic profile won’t hurt your chances at schools like Kellogg and Booth. United Way campaign …

  • mbaMission | Odds Assessment: 50%

    Hello Mr. Andrew! Krista Nannery from mbaMission here. I’ll try to cover some things that John and Alex have not touched on:
    As a URM, Please reach out to The Consortium and take advantage of all their wonderful resources and leverage their application process, which simplifies some of the detail work.
    That Division 1 rowing experience is great. B-schools love student-athletes, especially ones who can pull of a 3.6 GPA. I find sometimes that my clients with similar backgrounds don’t really “get” this though and I have to push them to sell their athletic experiences and related athletic and academic awards. Make sure this is all clear on your resume. Give it more than just one tiny bullet please!
    Goals: Spend some time over the next few months …

  • Stratus Admissions Counseling | Odds Assessment: 50%

    Hi Andrew, this is Donna Bauman, Senior MBA Admissions Counselor at Stratus Admissions with some thoughts about your profile. My first thought in reading your profile was about how you might be interested in the Asset Management pathway at Kellogg given your experience in wealth management. Granted you are already working in this field but the Kellogg Admissions team made a special point of noting this pathway when they presented a webinar for admissions consultants this past year. If you look at the Kellogg employment report for 2019, you’ll see that the percent of students working in finance/accounting roles jumped up to 19% of the class as opposed to 13% for 2018 so there is a lot of positive momentum for bringing in people with …
