    Hi, this is Deepak Punwani from MBA Exchange. Mr Industry Changer, pardon my “low-ball” views on your chances but you haven’t provided enough ‘spikes’ in your profile for me to be bullish on your chances at the schools on your list. You seem to be in the median or just below the median range on most parameters and adcom may find it easy to ding you. Is that the end of the world ? Definitely not. You may have certain other spikes in your profile not mentioned here (congrats for those) or you may be motivated enough to create fresh spikes. Will lay out the opportunities for such spikes here. 1) Definitely look to retake the GMAT. Your profile may seem plain vanilla at first …

  • mbaMission Odds Assessment: 20%

    Hi, it’s Nisha from mbaMission! It sounds like you’ve made solid progression as a consultant (including international leadership), and it is great to see that you’re heavily involved in mentorship.

    Mr. Industry Changer – Thanks for sharing your profile. Susan Cera here from Stratus. I spent ~10 years evaluating candidates at Duke Fuqua. During this time, I reviewed hundreds, if not thousands of applications from Indian candidates. Based on the info I have, it isn’t obvious that you are an Indian national so I won’t make any assumptions. Your profile shows some glimpses of strength but, with the limited information I have, I’m not seeing you as a stand out. (This is one challenge of these evaluations since I don’t have really robust information!)
    A few things I would suggest that you work on:
    1) Retake the GMAT. While 710 is admirable, it is slightly below average for many of the programs on your list.
    2) Build …
