    Hi Mr. Global Energy! This is Kate Richardson, Senior Admissions Consultant, weighing in on your profile. The big energy firm experience and exposure to several countries is a huge plus in your profile. If you’re applying in Fall 2021, then I think your amount of work experience is in range, although I do agree with the other expert that a promotion would look great to show you’re on a fast track. I also love your extracurriculars! Quite different from the typical applicant, so I’d love to dig into those more and understand why you chose those activities, how you’ve made a difference through them, and how you can bring those experiences to a b-school community. On the academic side, the IIT experience and solid GPA …

    Hi Mr. Global Energy. This is Melisa from Stratus Admissions. To start, you have clearly worked hard and have many achievements that will help your application – IIT, strong GMAT, global experience and strong extra-curriculars. These will put you at the higher end of a very competitive pool. I love that you are teaching and leading with acting – there is so much overlap with acting and the story telling of business. That said, you have a lower than average work experience for Stanford and the other programs you have identified. It is unclear from your information if you have been promoted. If you have, this could help overcome your lower work experience – make sure you highlight them and any increases in work experience …

    Hi, it’s Jennifer Jackson from Stratus Admissions. You have some really interesting global work experience that will be very attractive to ad-coms. Very solid GPA in a hard major in a hard school, as well as a great GMAT score. You’re coming from an overrepresented demographic but it looks like you have some leadership roles in extracurriculars to help you differentiate yourself. How have any of these roles informed your career goals? Changed you? What have you learned from them? Going into consulting with a focus on the energy sector certainly makes sense based on the experience you’ve had so far, but you’ll want to really dig in to WHY you’re interested in that — it’s not enough just to show that it makes sense …
