    Hi Mr. Digital Health Start-Up! This is Kate Richardson, Senior Admissions Consultant, weighing in on your profile. That shouldn’t be a concern that you don’t have a traditional 4 year B.S. degree, as I’m sure you took plenty of advanced courses and did well and your scientific background should actually be a positive differentiator. Your GPA is just a bit below Wharton’s 3.6 average though, so I’d love to see if you can get your GMAT up closer to Wharton’s 732 average.

I think your work background sounds super strong, with experience at a global biopharma, a promotion, and lots …

  • Stratus Admissions Counseling | Odds Assessment: 25%

    Hi Mr. Digital Health Startup, this is Donna Bauman, Senior MBA admissions counselor for Stratus Admissions weighing in on your profile. You remind me of one of my former clients who was accepted to Wharton with a terminal degree—she had a Ph.D. – And strong science/biotech background. She had an excellent experience at Wharton and is now investing in growth stage biotech companies after her MBA. What you don’t quite have is the killer GMAT so I encourage you to keep working on this or consider that you can now test for the GRE from home during covid19. Also what worked for other clients with stats similar to yours in getting into Wharton was to have a compelling narrative that was bigger than just …

  • The MBA Exchange | Odds Assessment: 30%

    Hi, this is Deepak Punwani from MBA Exchange. As has been mentioned earlier by fellow experts, your work experience sounds really impressive. Healthcare industry is in focus for all the right reasons and one can predict adcoms will love applicants who have solid healthcare backgrounds and want to make a career in healthcare. And the functional roles within healthcare – strategy, M&A, health-tech spin off all sound good. If you can execute a coherent narrative and show Wharton you possess the strengths it seeks in applicants, you are in play. Also if you decide to go with same GMAT score, make sure to explain it in optional essay. Don’t be defensive but do explain why your GPA and GMAT is below mean. Lastly, do showcase …
