  • The MBA Exchange | Odds Assessment: 25%

    Hi there! It’s Stephanie Horn, Master Consultant with the MBA Exchange and recent Poets and Quants “Top 10 Admissions Consultants”. I joined McKinsey after graduating from Kellogg, and my cohort included many engineers who had similar goals to yours. On the positive side of your profile, you have strong grades and test scores and solid work experience. Toastmasters is a great organization for teaching presentation skills and taking a leadership role in your chapter will add to your profile. On the negative side, you will be part of a very competitive cohort where the lack of a name brand undergraduate degree can hurt. You will need to stand out from the crowd with outstanding essays and letters of recommendation that demonstrate your strong leadership, ability …

    Hi, it’s Nisha from mbaMission. I really admire how you strive for continuous self-improvement.

  • Stratus Admissions Counseling | Odds Assessment: 20%

    Hi there—this is Donna Bauman, Senior MBA Admissions Counselor at Stratus Admissions—and I’m happy to provide you with some advice about your profile. I like that you have what I call “doer” experience—in that you have designed refinery equipment and unlike some peers who will have only crunched out reports and recommendations—you’ve had to build things. This adds immensely to classroom discussions and will be valuable when you move to the consulting side. I would not limit yourself to MBB—and so I encourage you to look at some other consulting firms where you can leverage your industry knowledge at the start. When visiting with Booth Admissions staff during a summer industry conference (AIGAC—Association for International Graduate Admissions Consultants), I remember Booth adcom saying that a …
