  • John A. Byrne, P&Q Founder & Editor-In-Chief | Odds Assessment: 30%

    You have a solid story here. I am particularly blown away by your big wins: To wit, “Awarded “top 1% consultants” prize (out of 1000+ candidates); (2) successfully managed an AI project that saved $3M for the client (conducted user research, designed the project, built client relationships, created the chatbot, liaised with the engineering team to improve the technology, and deployed the project).” Your AI experience is huge because of the impact artificial intelligence is going to have on our lives in the near future. I also very much like your long-term goal to create an A.I. platform that supports LGBTQ individuals with mental health issues. It tells me you have heart, that you care about others and are willing to give of yourself, attributes …

  • Sandy Kreisberg, The HBS Guru | Odds Assessment: 30%

    Stanford is hard. Your GPA/GMAT are in-line, but there is some missing info about the consulting company you work (is it MBB?). That would help, though it does not have to be. If not, does your firm have a history of sending folks to B-school? AI and LGBT are an OK pairing as a way to outline interests and goals. More than an average app, this may turn on execution, including your essays because it is somewhat non-traditional. Your really need to sound mmersed in both fields, which is possible given what you report. We need to see it in the full app. All that said, Stanford is just hard and sometimes very lottery like. Odds go up at HBS because the class size …

  • The MBA Exchange | Odds Assessment: 35%

    An impressive, albeit young, candidate. Fortunately, you’ve achieved tangible impact in a very hot field (AI). Undergrad academic profile is solid, and the Master’s in Management Studies from Duke is a real plus. Compelling personal background and interests reflected in your post-MBA goal and volunteer counseling, but I don’t see any strategic or leadership roles. Better chances at Kellogg and Columbia than GSB and HBS, but worth trying if you produce a stellar application.

    Hello Mr. LGBTQ! Thanks for posting. Krista Nannery here from mbaMission.
    Firstly, AI is an exciting field and there aren’t that many applicants right now that know a lot about it. I worked with a guy two years ago who was all blockchain all the time and I’d put you in a similar bucket. (He did VERY well in this process.) B-schools love expertise and it seems like you have it.

    Plus you’ve got the stats too and your extracurriculars are really fantastic.

    So what’s missing? I worked with someone similar — but different — a few years ago who applied to b-school with your same level of experience. He got an HBS interview which I was really happy about. However, when he walked into the room, …

  • Stratus Admissions Counseling | Odds Assessment: 35%

    Hi, it’s Jennifer Jackson from Stratus Admissions. There’s a lot to like in your profile! Your GPA in a hard major from a top school is a big plus as well as the strong GMAT. It’s also great to see that the LGBTQ work you’ve done encompasses employee engagement roles at your work as well as involvement outside of work. This shows your dedication to this cause, as does the fact that your LT goal is related as well, after you get that ST work experience as a product manager at a tech firm. Your path from now to MBA to ST to LT has all the dots connected for a great, cohesive story. Just be sure to use the essay to really be …
