  • mbaMission | Odds Assessment: 15%

    Hi, it’s Nisha from mbaMission. You have such an intriguing background and it’s clear that you don’t shy away from challenges, from being a first-gen college student to taking the reins of your family business.

    Given your experiences to date, I can understand what draws you to your aspirations of helping others grow their businesses. Business schools will want you to charter a path that’s ambitious and stems from your motivations, but one that is also realistic.

A big part of supporting entrepreneurs is the funding piece, so it makes sense …

  • Stratus Admissions Counseling | Odds Assessment: 40%

    Hi Mr. Future Angel Investor, this is Donna Bauman with Stratus Admissions with some comments on your profile.

I had a client a few years ago who worked as an entrepreneur with agriculture growing medicinal herbs so your involvement with cumin seeds reminds me a little of her background – and she was very successful in getting into top MBA programs. The fact that you understand business from the owner’s perspective will be valuable as an angel investor. Booth has a pre-MBA internship program that places people in VC prior to the program so that might be a great program …

The career goal you have described is very, very familiar and there is actually a specific way to structure it for the business school applications – but also for your future success! All the other pieces will fall into place, especially if you are guided by an experienced professional during your MBA campaign. There are some advantages but also pitfalls being a family business applicant, and some schools are more receptive than others. I’d love to tell you more and explore this together, …
