    Hi! Kate Richardson, Senior Admissions Consultant here. When I reviewed your profile, I liked your startup experience and interest in jiu jitsu, but I struggled to see what would make you stand out from the pack. Your GPA is just above Wharton’s 3.6 average, but their average GMAT is up to 732 now and yours falls quite below that. I realize there are limitations on the info you can provide here, but I found your work history a bit confusing (how does 6 mos + 2 yrs add up to 5 yrs in consulting? are the startups on the side of your full-time consulting work?). More importantly for admissions, how will the IT strategy consulting work you aim to do differ from the consulting work …

    Hello Mr. BJJ, it’s Lisa Cummings of Stratus Admissions. Given your GMAT, Wharton is going to be a really long shot for you unless there is a lot about you that you haven’t put in your profile. Speaking of profile, I do see a lot of really intersting nuggets in there but I am having trouble putting the pieces together. When did you do your masters and what was your GPA there? I agree with Kate, I would like to hear more about your work history. You will need to flesh out your story to tell the committees why you need an MBA when you are currently a tech consultant, could you shift to strategy consulting without an MBA? …

    Your lifetime window to apply for the full-time Wharton MBA is closing, but your application stats are mediocre. The following are my thoughts. Ultimately, however, your will have to make the actual decisions. If you are really set on Wharton, forget about the full-time Wharton MBA and consider a 5-7 year plan for applying to the Wharton Executive MBA. Consider the following steps to strengthen you application. 1. Put your entrepreneurial endeavors on hold, until after your MBA. Now, you need to get a Big Company name on your CV, with 2-3 promotions (to Sr. Manager / Director level) 2. Find several strong mentors, do excellent work for them, and obtain glowing letters of recommendation. 3. Do several years of substantial volunteering with a Big Name non-profit. 4. ...
