  • The MBA Exchange | Odds Assessment: 35%

    Hi Mr. MBB! This is JP, Senior Consultant with The MBA Exchange. I’ve worked with a number of seniors applying to top MBA programs, and was in similar situation myself many years ago. I’ve rated your chances fairly high but there’s a big caveat: you must get help immediately and do everything you can over the next four weeks to become a credible contender. The deadlines are really near, but as other experts mentioned there’s much to be done. For example, you need to do lots of introspection and have a clear long-term career vision. On top of this, you’ll have to do some serious “ground-level research” to demonstrate to the schools why they are such a good fit …

  • mbaMission | Odds Assessment: 15%

    Hi Mr. MBB! This is Kate Richardson, Senior Admissions Consultant weighing in on your profile. I would give some deferred MBA programs a shot.

That said, MBB candidates make up a substantial percentage of MBA applicants, so you need to stand out not just amongst those candidates, but in your reasons for why they should admit you now. Your story is what will make you unique, so spend time doing some deep reflection and brainstorming on what drives you and how you want to have an impact in the future. If you don’t make it into a deferred program now (they …

  • Stratus Admissions Counseling | Odds Assessment: 20%

    Hi, it’s Jennifer Jackson from Stratus Admissions. The deferred admissions programs as I’m sure you know are extremely competitive right now, as schools are all fighting to lock in the best talent before they can decide to go somewhere else after they’ve worked for a few years. While they are definitely looking at your whole profile, it is imperative to have high stats, which you certainly do! (I can’t tell where you went to undergrad since you listed three schools but they’re all great!) So the high stats are step one, but I would want to know more about your club and leadership roles. How have you grown through these activities? How have they helped inform your career goals? If you’re interested in consulting both …
