    Hi, it’s Nisha from mbaMission! Your passion for and impact on E-sports is intriguing, and it’s a distinguishing extracurricular activity – make sure you communicate in your application how you got started in E-sports and why it is so important to you. However, schools will be just as focused on your academics and career path. Regarding academics – your undergrad GPA is weak, but your MsC standing should help offset it. Additionally, I recommend taking the GRE to get closer to the mid 160s on each side, which is more in line with the average for CBS and Wharton.

    However, I think one thing schools might wonder: if you already have an MsC in investment management and are currently …

    Mr. E-sports coach – Thanks for sharing your profile. Susan Cera here from Stratus. I’m less bullish on your chances at HBS. With your current stats which are lower than the averages, you don’t have a better chance than the average applicant (`10%) to get in. I think you have a really interesting story to tell and it will be imperative that you explain why you need an MBA if you want to return to IB, espeically when you already have an advanced degree in investments. What is it that you need to learn that ONLY an MBA will give you? Look beyond HBS. NYU and CBS host a MES (Media, Entertainment & Sports) conference each year. There are several other schools that are co-hosts. …

    Kudos for hustling your way into i-banking, that's definitely an accomplishment! Being from Greece might give you an edge -- I think P&Q has said before that international students from Europe are highly sought after. I think to strengthen your profile, it may be worth retaking the GRE. Best of luck!
