  • The MBA Exchange Odds Assessment: 10%

    Hi Mr. Marketing Director. This is Talon Rindels, Sr. Admissions Consultant at The MBA Exchange. At 9%, Wharton has one of the lowest acceptance rates of any program and I’m going to rank your chances right at that for a couple of reasons.

  • Stratus Admissions Counseling | Odds Assessment: 15%

    Hello Mr. Marketing Director, it’s Lisa Cummings of Stratus Admissions. I agree with my peers that your stats are a bit low for your targets. It will also matter to the schools if you yourself are an international student, and if so, where from, or did you just get your undergrad degree abroad? The candidate pools from some countries are large, making them more competitive. On the plus side your experience in advertising will set you apart, but your years of work experience may be seen as a negative, especially from the viewpoint of potential employers, so that is someting to keep in mind, even though you want to pivot. Do you think you could get the skills you need in a …
