  • John A. Byrne, P&Q Founder & Editor-In-Chief | Odds Assessment: 35%

    You’ve got a powerful story to tell here but there are also some potential landmines in your profile. A first generation college grad who got a full ride and then nailed it with high grades in a difficult subject–mechanical engineering–is super impressive. And your 750 GMAT rings the bell at Wharton or, for that matter, any business school. Plus, you have a master’s degree from Rutgers University and boast several impressive big wins in your professional background. But at the end of the day, Wharton only accepts about 22% of its applicants and you fall right into the most overrepresented part of the elite MBA applicant pool: An male Indian engineer. And while you got a full ride at Anna University, it’s not an IIT. …

  • The MBA Exchange Odds Assessment: 80%

    Your work experience spanning product development and process improvement should be very attractive the Wharton adcom. You are truly a “Corporate Monster.” And actually quantifying your results makes you a rare MBA candidate since many others are either too reluctant to do so or just unaware of how important this is. Your stated post-MBA goals are a logical yet challenging extension of what you already do. Smart move! Your undergrad major in ME, GPA, 750 GMAT and master’s degree are outstanding. Pro bono consulting, active sports and international exposure really round out your personal profile. With strong essays, recs and performance in the Wharton Team-based Discussion, they’d be crazy not to admit you! In fact, I’d probably add Harvard and Stanford to …

  • mbaMission | Odds Assessment: 30%

    Hello Mr. Corporate Monster! Thanks for posting! Krista Nannery from mbaMission here.
    On the surface, I’d say “Wow! Great stats! Great work experience! Great ECs!” BUT I’ve learned in working your demographic that it’s important to understand the details. How many years of US work experience? How international is your exposure? What were your undergrad extracurriculars? How involved are you in the community today? To truly understand your chances at the top schools, these are the questions I’d want to delve into with you. I like that you have Cornell and Tepper on your list already — they seem like great, safe options. It’s harder to gauge the rest without knowing more about you and how unique you are compared to your competition. I know …
