    Hi Mr. Global Consultant,
    This is Debbie Choy, GSB alum and Senior Consultant at mbaMission. Impressive achievements! I especially like that through your work, you have an opportunity to influence national policies. In 8 years of working with candidates, I see many consultants of course. However, I think your niche in social impact consulting is a strong point of differentiation. It’s an area that many MBA graduates are eager to pursue. Thus, I think your perspectives and experiences would be much welcomed in the GSB classroom.

If possible, try to weave in stories …

You’re coming from an over-represented demographic so there’s more to overcome as far as standing out in a strong field of applicants. I recommend being very clear and personal about WHY you want to go into impact investing, and try to connect the dots between what you’ve done and what you want to do. GSB wants people who will change the world, so be bold in your essays about …
