    No matter what your background, a 630 GMAT score is a non-starter at Columbia unless you are or were a prof-football player or a world class cellist who has played Carnegie Hall multiple times. So you really need to get that score close to 700 to be a legit candidate a CBS. Columbia really cares about GMATs and is over indexing the text in its admission decisions. It’s a really good sign, however, that you graduated in the top 10% of your med school class, though we don’t know which school that is and that is an important piece of information. If it is a top school, that would help a lot. If you can’t be convinced to take the GMAT again and get your …

    Hi there, Julie-Anne Heafey here with mbaMission. You’ve put in a lot of work to your MD, and kudos for graduating in the top 10% of your class (where did you go, I don’t see the grad school name?). I see two critical issues for your application. The first is that you’ll really need to demonstrate how your past and current experience are going to make you invaluable for your future employer. I don’t see enough on that in your profile, but maybe you have great experience in a hot area for startups that would be clearer if I knew about your specialty and/or the startup you’re at now (though you haven’t been there very long). VC and PE firms are small …

  • Stratus Admissions Counseling | Odds Assessment: 5%

    Mr. MD (or perhaps I should just say ‘Dr?’) – Susan Cera, Director of MBA Admissions. I’m intriqued by your medical background and short start-up experience. For the CBS full-time program, your stats will be a non-starter. I don’t know where you are located but perhaps if CBS is your dream school, an alternative program, part-time or EMBA, might be an option. For those, adcom will be a bit more forgiving on the stats.
    If you want to transition to PE/VC, you likely will need to develop your financial skills through a stint in IB since PE firms typically don’t hire directly from MBA programs unless you have previous PE experience. Assuming you want to stay in the healthcare space, consider expanding your school list for …

    How can you be a doctor who graduated in the top 10% of your class and get a GMAT score that low? Even so, I would love to have a doctor in my class. So I still think you have a good chance here.
