    HI! This is JP, I’m a Senior Consultant at The MBA Exchange. I’ve spent much of my life both in the US and Asia, been active in non-profit, and worked with many applicants with similarities to your story over the last ten years. So your profile definitely resonates! You have a much richer background and experiences than most applicants, but the challenge will be to capture it in a way that Admissions Committee will understand and value. There are some minor challenges to overcome as well, but I’m sure you’re up to the task. I’d be happy to have a chat to discuss how to maximize your odds of gaining a seat at HBS.

    Hello Mr. Health Clinic Founder!
    Krista Nannery from mbaMission here.
    I love that you have started your own health clinic and it seems to have a wide footprint — 150 employees is impressive!!

    Hi Mr. Healthcare Founder, Melisa here from Stratus Admissions. You have a lot going for your application: solid GRE, great US and in country work experience, and strong extracurricular tied into what appears to be your long term passion in healthcare. I do think this will help overcome your lower than HBS’s average GPA. How you tie your story together and give evidence to the impact you can make with your HBS MBA will be your difference. I recently worked with a client who was living and working in Asia and wanted to return post-MBA. I really think that on-the-ground experience added credibility to the viability of employment post-MBA. I love that you’ve had both large US and non-profit in country experience. Are there opportunities …
