Candidate:

Mr. Armenian Geneticist

About Me:

I am currently a Computational Biologist at a hot Silicon Valley biotech, just recently IPO’d. Originally from Armenia, came to the US to study at MIT and then got a Master of Engineering degree there as well.

Details:

Undergrad School: MIT

Undergrad Major: CS and Biology

GPA: 3.7

GRE: 331

Age: 28,  Ethnicity: White

Other Degree/Certification: Master's

School Name: MIT

Extracurriculars: Secretary, MIT Armenian Society, Secretary, MIT Computer Science Honors Society

Work History:

Title: Computational Biologist

Industry: Healthcare

Company: Start-Up

Length of Employment: 2 yrs

Big Life Wins:

The only Computational Biologist in the company without a PhD (in an industry where R&D roles are extremely skewed towards PhD holders). Received a promotion within 18 months, for working on important projects that led to our IPO.

Post MBA Goal:

After MBA, I plan to stay in the biotech industry and hopefully launch a healthcare start up, focused on cancer diagnostics and treatment (personal connection to the disease). Feel I already have an extensive technological background, but want to learn the business side of things during the MBA studies.

Schools:

Target School: Harvard

Status: Open

Considering: Stanford GSB

    This is JP from The MBA Exchange. I am a graduate of HBS and have guided many applicants to success over the last ten years, who share a background similar to yours. There are both opportunities and challenges in your profile if you’re targeting HBS, GSB and other top US programs. On the positive side, you have very clear expertise to share with classmates. It’s evident that you’d be a valuable addition to the classroom, especially in terms of healthcare cases. Furthermore, Boston is a hub for healthcare and HBS is very involved. You could easily connect with alumni and find career opportunities. You degrees from MIT will also be respected by the Admissions Committee. The main …
