    Hi Mr. Consulting to Public Service, Julie-Anne Heafey here with mbaMission. Your stats and work experience indicate that you are well qualified for your target program, but it’s your story– your experiences and motivations– that will likely be the difference-makers here…Remember to share your unique perspective and what you’ll add to the class. Also, don’t forget to have a clear rationale for how the two degrees together are critical for your plans. Have you considered other programs? Harvard’s always an unpredictable target, so I recommend adding some more names. Remember that you can do an MPP with other top MBA programs, so to improve your chances of success, I recommend you add a few more options as backup. Good luck!!
