Mr. Aspiring Unicorn Founder
I am a junior at Bowdoin in my undergrad and my goal is to apply for admission straight out of school. I’m obsessed with startups and tech and spend more time working on startups and doing innovation-related ECs. I am extremely driven but non-technical.
I am aware that at this stage my chances of being admitted into one of my target schools may be slim but I am working on scaling my startup to a certain amount of users, working towards becoming the leader of my school’s consulting and soccer club, and bringing up my GPA. Given my current GPA, what would be a safe GPA goal to work towards? Please feel free to be honest, I have thick skin.

Post MBA Goal:
Found and scale a company that changes the world for the better; coming from LAC in Maine, I don’t have any business or tech skills. I fell hard into this passion this year and can’t get into any cs classes because the department is too small nor any business classes, so I want to get a dual MBS MS CS if possible.
