    This is a generally impressive profile but doesn’t quite ring all the bells at Stanford GSB given its less than 7% accept rate. Both your GPA and GMAT falls below the latest class averages at Stanford. Your experience at a “regional VC firm” isn’t going to get you all that much from the GSB. As you undoubtedly know, the American University of Cairo is not a feeder school into Stanford (In Stanford’s MBA Class of 2020, there’s not a single student with a degree from your alma mater, though there is one student from the American University in Bulgaria and one from the American University of Beirut). Yet there are small signals detailed in your sparse profile that make me like you very much, from …

    Hey Mr. Egyptian VC, Krista Nannery, Senior Consultant from mbaMission here.
    Firstly, can I just tell you that I spent a week in March on a dahabiya, floating down the Nile from Luxor to Aswan and absolutely loved it? Beautiful country. I especially enjoyed my daily koshari.

    So here’s the thing…I have never met an Egyptian Venture Capitalist before. I’ve worked with lots of clients from the UAE, Saudi Arabia, and Lebanon over the years, but I have never worked with an Egyptian client and certainly not an Egyptian VC. I doubt many people have worked with someone of your profile. So that makes evaluating your chances a bit tougher! The fact that you have raised a $20M VC fund in the Middle East seems super …

    GPA needs to be higher. You can improve it by taking courses of statistics, advanced mathematics or machine learning! Your Post MBA can be difficult as many foreign students face problems to acquire H1B visas, unless you feel comfortable with 12 months of OPT (up to 27 months or more if your selected program has a STEM seal). Please, ask your International Student Services of your chosen MBA and ask them how their international students are doing in US.
