The Experts Rate The Odds At: 25%

  • John A. Byrne, P&Q Founder & Editor-In-Chief | Odds Assessment: 25%

    Columbia could be a reach because it is extremely competitive and the bar is high. For an Asian/Indian, your basic stats are ok but nothing to write home about, particularly since you earned your BA from a non-feeder university and for your cohort, the numbers are actually significantly below the averages. I do like your work experience, however, and I think CBS will find that attractive as well, particularly in leading cross-border deals for PE firms. By the way, I would look very seriously at Cornell which has a superb IB track.
