    Hello Mr. Entrepreneur! Krista Nannery from mbaMission here! Thanks for posting.
    I love your combination of 3 years big corporate CPG with 2 years Ag-tech. Add in the start-ups you’ve founded and wow…what a story!!! I can envision some great essays here and a real “Why” for an MBA. (I’m guessing you’ve been baptized by fire a few times.) My concern here is your stats. With a 2.7 GPA, you’re in the lowest 10% of admitted students for most schools. (80th percentile range is typically 3.2 to 3.8 so you’re really low.) Then, the 690 isn’t maybe enough to compensate for that GPA. HEC and NUS might be more flexible here but for CBS, Sloan and Stern, it will be tough. My recommendation would be either …

    MIT Sloan will not swallow those stats: 2.7/690. And work history after college is a bit unclear. First job sounds solid. Current job also seems solid as does history of having founded two start-ups yourself.

    Whether all that solid accomplishment is enough to overcome your low stats is an open question. I gave you 30 percent odds as way of recognizing that, but MIT rarely goes off their GPA/GMAT protocols. International schools –HEC and Singapore– should be way easier. NYU may go for this, but they are also pretty stats focused.

    Mr Entrepreneur, I’m Lisa Cummings of Stratus Admissions, a former Sloan adcomm member. Your entrepreneurial experience is interesting and congrats on your success there.As my peers mention, Sloan is very numbers focused and while I will never say never, with your stats it will make hard for you to get noticed at Sloan. Schools will want to know that you can cut the mustard in the classroom; is there anything you can do to show Sloan, or other schools that you are a solid candidate. You have only been out of school 2 years. Do you think is it possible to get your GMAT up with study or are you convinced this is the best you can do? What …
