    Mr. Fitness Entrepreneur: Emily here, Master Consultant at The MBA Exchange. I think your GPA could have been a big issue with the schools where you were denied like Sloan and Wharton but I think Tuck and Kellogg could be great fits for you. For your interviews, you really need a well thought out story about your goals. While I can see where the interest came from to combine a personal passion with your professional background, you will want to show that you know where there is a unique opportunity for you to add to the fitness/health market. What is not being done now that could be done successfully? Where can you fit into that opportunity with the skills you …

    Hello Mr. Fitness Entrepreneur!
    Thanks for posting. Krista Nannery from mbaMission here. Looks like you are in the midst of this process now so I’m curious to hear if you heard from Tuck today and if so, what was the news?

    All that being said, given that you are currently reporting to the C-suite, I’d want to know if your C-suite has MBAs and if so, from where. These things can be good signals. …
