Big Life Wins:

Spent a year working on a major media/technology project as a junior consultant without assistance. Achieved results as the sole analyst working on the project!

    Nisha has given you excellent advice. It’s hard to add to her smart suggestions. I would reaffirm that your stats are in line and you would bring valuable experience to the class at either Yale or Tuck. It’s especially impressive that as a history major you successful made the transition to business consultant, getting a promotion in the process and working on a major media/technology project as a junior consultant without assistance. So while you are on the older side, I give you good odds of a successful outcome, though I agree it would be helpful to hedge their bets just in case.

    Hi, it’s Nisha with mbaMission! I see that you’ve had a progressive career within consulting at a major firm. Do you have very strong recommenders who can vouch for your exceptional performance, potential, and growth vs. your peers? This will be key to the positive evaluation of your professional profile. I’m glad to see that you have meaningful community involvement within and outside of the firm too – AdComs always look to see if consultants are taking advantage of opportunities for internal firm leadership. Your academic stats are within range for Yale and Tuck – since you’re applying from a competitive demographic, and if you plan to expand your list of schools and apply to any others in the top …

    Mr. F500 Consultant - Thanks for posting your profile. Susan Cera, Director of MBA Admissions, here. You have solid stats and professional experience which I presume has offered exposure to a variety of industries and project from which you can draw to make meaningful contributions in the classroom. Your extracurriculars feel a bit flat but there could be more than what you were able to share here. Beyond just working within one company, why do you want to go into corporate finance or strategy? Why for a big tech company? What is stopping you from getting that role now (without an MBA)? You need to develop a clear plan for a reasonable post-MBA goal job then work backwards into the areas that you need to develop ...
