Hi Mr. First-Time MBA, This is Debbie Choy, Senior Consultant at mbaMission. I think you have a lot of strengths in your profile – strong work experience, robust extracurriculars and solid GRE. I find your volunteering activities to demonstrate leadership, which is sometime that the Admissions Committee (AdCom) is looking for, so if possible, weave in your stories about building a school in Honduras and serving disabled professionals. For example, what did these experiences teach you about teamwork and leadership? These stories could help differentiate you from the crowd. I think if you can do this compellingly in your application, you’d stand a good chance at the schools on your list. Wishing you the best in your MBA journey!
