    Hello Mr. Late Bloomer! I’m very intrigued by the name! Krista Nannery from mbaMission here. I’m very intrigued by your school list and how you narrowed things down to Jones, McCombs, and NUS. I think they are all great choices for you but I am curious just the same.
    One thing you mention is that post-MBA, you want to get back to India in a “few years.” If that’s the case, I want you to really look at the STEM-certified MBA programs so you have a better shot of staying in the US post MBA. There are different lists online so you’ll have to poke around a bit to make sure you’ve caught everyone.
    The other thing I want you to do is download the employment reports …

  • Stratus Admissions Counseling | Odds Assessment: 50%

    Mr. Late Bloomer, it’s Lisa Cummings of Stratus Admissions, a former adcomm at MIT Sloan. When read your name I thought you’d perhaps be a more seasoned applicant looking for an EMBA.

That should include details about your leadership skills and the impact you have had at work. You …

  • The MBA Exchange | Odds Assessment: 70%

    Hi! This is JP from The MBA Exchange. Your profile looks very familiar as I’ve guided a number of similar applicants over the last ten years, especially in Asia. There are many encouraging factors about your profile. The fact that you’ve been exposed to different areas of business, and realize the value of understanding them, will be highly respected by the Admissions Committees! They know from experience that such people make for great MBA students willing to learn (and share). Secondly, manufacturing is often under-represented in MBA programs. This will give you an edge as an applicant. You would be seen as an asset if you can demonstrate that you are able to share your professional experiences …
