    Hi Mr. Blockchain, Kristen from MBA Prep School here. There is so much to like about your profile; congratulations on all you have achieved in spite of your circumstances! Your impeccable academics, extracurricular leadership, solid internship experiences, and clear vision for how you want to positively impact the world shine through and should catch Stanford’s eye. I’m not sure if you currently have a full-time, post-grad job offer yet given you mention taking some risks. While most deferred MBA programs look for that as a “stamp of approval”, per se, in your case I think you’ve been able to show your determination and that you will maximize the deferral period even if you don’t have something locked up now. Best of luck!

    This is a really impressive profile for Stanford GSB’s deferred MBA admissions program. First off, your story will resonate with admissions officiers. The fact that you came of age in a low-socioeconomic environment in an immigrant household and made it to Berkeley and then pulled a 3.9 in a STEM major is a stellar accomplishment. I love that you traded cryptocurrencies to make ends meet. It tells me you have that fire in the belly that gives me assurance of your tenacity and grit. The fact that you are president of a large student engineering organization also tells me something about your leadership potential. And your interest in blockchain and renewable energy are all positives, too, because both loom large in our future. And let’s …

    Whoa, Mr. Blockchain, not many people come from a low socioeconomic/immigrant background and make ends meet by trading cryptocurrencies. How did you come to get involved in that? This story, combined with your stellar stats and passion to change the world should get you a real shot at the programs you are targeting. Speak from the heart about your influences and motivations and show your impact at the organizations you’ve been involved with, and you should go far. Good luck! Julie-Anne Heafey, mbaMission

    Hi Mr. Blockchain, Melisa here from Stratus Admissions. Go Bears! I’ll concur with John that you have an amazing profile. Successful Stanford applicants I have worked with have all the had same ‘change the world’ desire I see in you. Another commonality I see is that your inherent knowledge of the industry you want to change the world with. The fact that you want to defer so that you can take a risk on blockchain backs all this up. Wishing you the best of luck through the process. You will be a strong candidate at any of the schools you’ve chosen. With Stanford’s low acceptance rate, I think you will do great – but have trouble giving anyone a 50/50 shot.
