  • mbaMission | Odds Assessment: 20%

    Hey there Mr. Finance in Tech, Julie-Anne Heafey here from mbaMission. Odds for Harvard’s 2+2 program can be tricky to evaluate…without long track records, we just don’t have a ton to go on here. I do see some mixed messaging in your recap above — the IB club, is that Investment Banking? But you want to do business operations in tech? (I’m deliberately not touching the VC/entrepreneur plan.) I guess I don’t know what these things mean together. I’d focus on the short term here…I don’t think I’d suggest trying to articulate a crystal clear long term goal, you haven’t even had your first FT job yet. I’d keep it to your ST goal/current employment planned and what problems you’d want …

  • Stratus Admissions Counseling | Odds Assessment: 30%

    Hi, it’s Jennifer Jackson from Stratus Admissions. You’re right — you do have great stats! Since the deferred programs have less work experience to assess, stats become even more important so this will be a strong suit for your application. Your high GPA also is in a challenging major that is tied to your internship, so that’s all a plus too. I assume you already have the ops role at the tech company lined up for pre-MBA? For the post-MBA goal, VC is seen as very hard to break into but I do like that you want to dig in and get hands-on operations experience at a startup before going the investing route. So I think it does make sense given where you are and …

    Hey there Mr. Finance in Tech! This is Talon Rindels, Sr. Admissions Consultant at The MBA Exchange and fellow Badger – On Wisconsin! Please hit up the Blue Velvet and have a Curious George Martini for me, as that was my go-to drink when I worked there! Now, back to business… I couldn’t agree more with your opening line – you definitely have the stats to get into Harvard’s 2+2 program for sure (check!), but you’ll still need a compelling/coherent/authentic story to seal the deal! With your GMAT score +30 pts higher than Harvard’s Deferred Admit average of 730 and your GPA +23 bps higher than their average of 3.67, this is not a conversation about your numbers. I like …
