    INSEAD will salivate over your GMAT score. Everything else is pretty irrelevant. It may be a different story at Harvard, Stanford and Wharton. But your chances at those U.S. schools should be pretty good, too.

    Your 770 GMAT guarantees your application will get serious attention at any and all top schools, even with a qualitative undergrad degree a less prestigious uni. What’s curious is you being 27 years old with just 2 years of full-time work experience and no master’s degree. What were you doing for the other ~3 years… travel? Military? Independent study?? Advising NGOs is a very worthwhile non-work activity but you need more horsepower to compensate for the shorter work history. Given your post-MBA goal, why not start a small, social enterprise of your own now?

    Hi, it’s Nisha from mbaMission! You’ve got excellent academics (well above the average for INSEAD and above average for the other schools you’d indicated), are starting to build a strong career in strategy, and have meaningful extracurricular involvement. Two years is a bit light in terms of work experience though, so you may have better luck applying next year. In the meantime, pursue increased responsibility and leadership opportunities at work (and hopefully secure a promotion) to show your progression in this area and continue making impact as a pro-bono consultant. If you do this and communicate your story clearly (including your motivations for pursuing consulting in the short-term and social enterprise in the long term), I think you’ll be a solid contender. Best of …

  • Stratus Admissions Counseling | Odds Assessment: 35%

    Hi Mr. Jumbo GMAT, that is quite an impressive score you have so kudos on that. However, as other experts have noted, you are a bit shy of work experience with just 2 yrs. You definitely need to explain what you did in the past few years if you were not working as one would typically expect someone who is 27 to have been working more than 2 years. I agree that you will need to show impact and ideally some progression in your work to have the best shot at INSEAD but I certainly encourage you to apply. I think your odds at HBS, GSB are also going to be challenging with just 2 yrs of work. Be sure that you really emphasize your …

    There are plenty of people with jumbo GMATs who get rejected from tp schools but I would bet there aren't many of them at INSEAD.

    In my personal opinion as an INSEAD alum, the super high GMAT score is great but might not be able to compensate for lesser work-ex. Might be asked to re-apply if the essays are of high quality.
