    Hi Mr. Industrial Goods To MBB,
    This is Debbie Choy, Senior Consultant at mbaMission. I am impressed by your background – especially your international experiences, adaptability, drive, and commitment to the African continent! I think your stories will resonate with schools like HBS and GSB. The GMAT and GPA could be a concern but your industry and academic specialties are niche and hard.

Your GMAT is on the softer side and the GPA is as well but you had a hard major at a top school plus your work experience in consulting is very strong. If you want to enter MBB, you might consider re-taking the GMAT since they’ll be looking for a higher score. …
