  • mbaMission | Odds Assessment: 15%

    Hi, it’s Nisha from mbaMission. It sounds like you’ve had a productive career in banking so far – in order to fully evaluate this part of your profile, I’d have to know more about your progression in responsibility/roles/compensation over the past 4 years. Additionally, how confident are you that your recommenders will give you the highest ratings in terms of performance/potential/growth?

If it was above 3.7, it will also go a ways towards mitigating your undergrad performance as well.

    Hi Mr. Investment Banker! This is Talon Rindels, Sr. Admissions Consultant at The MBA Exchange. You have some intriguing/unique aspects to your profile, including being a published sports author and your success with the CFA! That said, Wharton has one of the lower acceptance rates at just 9% and I am rating you at their average acceptance rate due to a couple aspects of your profile: (1) At 29 years old, you are above their average student age and thus, they’ll expect that you bring some pretty compelling work experience into the program. However, I am confused with your 4+ years of experience at that age. Are the few years missing between undergrad and age 29 because of the time you took …
