  • MBA Prep School | Odds Assessment: 10%

    Hi Mr. Community Impact, Kristen from MBA Prep School here. I admire your dedication to social good through your engagement in nonprofits and work in healthcare. I applaud you for your success in overcoming obstacles as a child and giving back to your family in a big way, and Admissions Committees will admire your grit and tenacity.

Sometimes a quant-heavy job can round out this gap but your role in sales won’t quite provide that. I would highly recommend retaking the GMAT and perhaps signing up for some quant courses through an online extension school. …

    Mr. Community Impact – Thanks for posting your profile. Susan Cera here from Stratus.

    I am very impressed by the distance you have traveled and your commitment to making an impact in your community with respect to healthcare. Based on the limited information you have shared, it appears that you have a habit of leadership, something that HBS values. You also appear to be an engaged community citizen which will also serve you well in your HBS application. The piece of your profile that feels like it falls short is your analytical aptitude and appetite (as viewed through the lens of your stats). You will need to show HBS that you are ready for the quantitative rigor of their program. Consider retaking the GMAT and/or taking …
