Mr. Ex-Aspiring Diplomat

About Me:

I come from a financially challenging background and have always used education as a tool to change the status quo.

  • John A. Byrne, P&Q Founder & Editor-In-Chief | Odds Assessment: 25%

    This is an exceptional profile for a top MBA program. You check a lot of boxes, including your basic stats with a 750 GMAT. That’s darn good for a poli sci major from Vanderbilt.
