    Hey, Mr. Aussie Sustainability, this is Julie-Anne Heafey with mbaMission. You have a really fascinating background, and your sustainability focus is very of-the-moment, but Stanford is a goal with lottery-like odds. The first hurdle will of course be the GMAT – I’d definitely retake the test or consider switching to the GRE (have you tried an online sample test?). Yes, they’ll consider some applicants with lower GMAT scores, but it’s not the norm.
    Second, you need to clarify your message and demonstrate your impact. I just don’t know exactly what you’ve done “as part of a working group” to recycle a “particular product that holds social, safety and environmental value.” That could mean a lot of things. Your goals are …

    Hi there! It’s Stephanie Horn, Master Consultant with the MBA Exchange and recent Poets and Quants “Top 10 Admissions Consultants”. Mr. Aussie Sustainability, you have top grades and challenging undergraduate and graduate degrees. You already know that your GMAT will be a constraint for a school like Stanford, and that you’ll be better off if you can get it in the 700 range.

Your main challenge will be to cast your work experience and your goals into more traditional business language. Admissions committees are very concerned that the candidates they accept will have jobs upon graduation. Reading that you want to take skills for for-profit organizations and apply them for a …

    Hi, it's Jennifer Jackson at Stratus Admissions. I love seeing the global experience you've had, especially in Saudi Arabia where fewer applicants come from. You're working in the hot field of sustainability and have interesting experience in the sports world across different geographies. The negatives I see for GSB are the GMAT (which hopefully will become a strength soon!) and to some degree the other Master's on your resume. Schools are wary of degree collectors, so it will be incumbent on you to show why you need the MBA to get where you're going. Stanford is looking for people to change the world, and your work to better the environment definitely fits that ethos. You have wonderful experience in the sports world outside of ...
