    Wow – there is a ton more I’d like to learn more about! For ex, how you’ve turned opportunities into wins, how you’ve leveraged your learnings from the vaping start-up to the mobility start-up, and how you’ve helped other aspiring entrepreneurs find their own success. Other things to think about: why business school at all? I know you see it as a springboard (and it is one, of course!) – but what do you really want to gain from business school that you didn’t in undergrad business, and why is mgmt. consulting calling your name? You might find – after the fast-paced and “do whatever it takes” spirit of start-ups – that mgmt. consulting or an LDP type role …

  • John A. Byrne, P&Q Founder & Editor-In-Chief | Odds Assessment: 10%

    You have a lot going for you. You are clearly a go-getter, with a successful entrepreneurial track record. And you have a high GMAT. If you had gone to one of the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), which collectively provided 12 members of Harvard’s Class of 2020, and your startup sold something other than vapes, I would be far more optimistic about your chances at HBS. But at Harvard, your feeder college counts because you’re competing in the pool against others who have graduated from a feeder college. And in U.S. admission circles, there’s a politically correct bias that may make some look askance at your success selling vapes in India. The more recent barrage of U.S. media reports on the health risks of vaping …

    Mr. Hustler! Krista Nannery from mbaMission here. Now you have an interesting story! But I agree with John on the vaping thing…b-schools in the US may not know what to do with that given all the negative press here. So here’s my question for you…how do you feel about vaping, now that you’ve left the business? Maybe there’s a way to talk about this honestly in the optional essay…I just think AdComs will raise an eyebrow or two so you might as well get in front of it. (To be fair, b-schools seem to like Big Tobacco so the question is why is vaping more problematic. I don’t know if I have a good answer for that but I think there’s probably some recency bias …

  • The MBA Exchange | Odds Assessment: 20%

    Hi, this is Deepak Punwani from MBA Exchange. If only your first start up wasn’t about vaping but about something in area of providing clean energy to the masses (for example), your chances would be so much higher ! That said, initially vaping was seen as a safer alternative to smoking those ciggies, so if you started in 2016 or thereabouts vaping wasnt such a bad name then. If you can show that you evolved your views with the research and actually decided to move away from Vaping before Juul became a four letter word and India banned Vaping, you can actually play this to your advantage. And e-scooters is a “hot” industry and if you are at Bounce / Vogo kind of firm then …
