    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.

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 ...
