Mr. Cal Poly

About Me:

I am a self-made individual who powered through life’s trials, obstacles and hardships to survive and become a first-generation college graduate, who now serves as an Economic Policy Consultant for the world’s 5th Largest economy (California). My professional experiences converge together into the business and economic development policy space.

    I like the way you describe yourself: “I am a self-made individual who powered through life’s trials, obstacles and hardships to survive and become a first-generation college graduate.” That alone, along with your nontraditional work experience, makes you an appealing candidate in my mind. But Chicago Booth is going to be tough. While Booth accepts GRE scores, it was a laggard in finally agreeing to accept them.

    Hello Mr. Cal Poly! Thanks for posting. Krista Nannery from mbaMission here. Chicago Booth grad too!
    I love your goals and find them very logical given your background. B-schools will too.

B-schools want students who can really share a lot with their classmates, and while you certainly will have a unique perspective, do you have enough experience to share? (You can always argue that you do but it can still be tough given the competition we’re talking about here.)
    While I wouldn’t dissuade you from applying this year — you’ve gotta be in …
