  • 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 …

  • mbaMission | Odds Assessment: 50%

    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.

    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. Don’t worry, 27 is the age of most MBA students. Perhaps you mean you have just started to focus on your goals? You aren’t late to that party either. As you describe it in your blurb, your manufacturing and engineering background could be a real draw for Jones or other programs, you will need to carefully craft your story for your target schools using language that will resonate with them. That should include details about your leadership skills and the impact you have had at work. You …
