  • John A. Byrne, P&Q Founder & Editor-In-Chief | Odds Assessment: 40%

    You look like a really solid guy and your work experience in strategy at a Fortune 500 company, along with that early promotion, should make a big difference in your candidacy. While your GPA is below the class average at Tuck, it’s still within range, particularly given your solid GMAT score. Your post-MBA goal to work for MBB also makes great sense. It’s linear and builds on your corporate experience in strategy. I also think your extras–serving as an executive for an NGO supporting refugees and being finance director for a nonprofit–will work to your advantage.

It will be important to illustrate the leadership roles you have taken on, which should be significant given your Strategy Manager position. Finally, I think your goal of MBB is realistic, given your background. As for your odds at Tuck, I see them as a bit above the ...
