  • mbaMission | Odds Assessment: 10%

    Hi, it’s Nisha from mbaMission! What a versatile skillset you’ve demonstrated – success in consulting, programming, and managerial experience. I think that your professional trajectory will be very attractive to business schools. Your academics are also solid, in line with Stanford’s average. It looks like you had some great extracurricular experience in college, having founded an LGBTQ student group – how do you spend time outside of work these days? The strongest candidates I’ve worked with have post-collegiate leadership involvement in the community (in any capacity – community service, cultural organizations, alumni organizations, sports).

    Stanford is extremely competitive, but with a compelling application in which you fully communicate your achievements (professional+personal), passion behind your career goals, personal story, and fit, it’s …

Your combo of having been an entrepreneur, coder and data scientist could showcase a broad skillset- you will want to make connection among those positions so your career looks like it had some direction and was not just a random collection of jobs. Additionally, …
