Big Life Wins:

I have overcome a significant mental illness in the previous few years, one which is deeply personal, a cause close to me, and will be a focal part of my essays. I have been an active community member, a high quality employee showing impact at my work over the last few years, and was a Southern Conference Honor Roll member in my undergrad.

Post MBA Goal:

I would like to use the MBA as a pivot in my career into finance and banking. I want to use the MBA as an opportunity to sharpen my quant skills and to further develop and hone skills needed to get into investment banking as my shorter term goal. Eventually, I would like to work for a fund that focuses on impact investing.

    First off, congrats on overcoming what had to be a major struggle for you. Your consulting trajectory from a boutique firm to a solid tier two firm is admirable and impressive.Your GRE score is right on target for Tuck–at 324 it’s exactly at the latest class average–and now 21% of the students at Tuck get in with a GRE. While you have a low GPA, I don’t think it should hurt you given your earlier struggle with mental illness. Being a Division I athlete in college is a plus for Tuck because a key part of the school’s culture is the affinity so many students have for the outdoors and athletic competition. So I think you have a real shot at Tuck, …

    Hello Mr. Metamorphosis! Thanks for posting. Krista Nannery from mbaMission here.
    I agree with John completely on your list of schools. You seem to understand the “risk-adjusted portfolio approach” that I often recommend to my clients. Darden and Yale on the stretch side, Georgetown and Cornell on the safer side. One thing I want you to think about is banking placement. Check out the employment reports for your target schools and look at what % of each class goes into banking. Then, armed with that information, talk to the banking clubs and ask about banking placement. For example, Stern sends a large number of students into banking, but there are also a large number of people fighting for those jobs. You may find it easier to …

    Mr. Metamorphosis – Susan Cera, Director of MBA Admissions, here. I think your athletic background and consulting experience make you a strong candidate for Tuck. You have the foundation for getting a seat in the class. The key for you will be to connect with the Tuck community so you can clearly demonstrate Why Tuck both through your essays as well as in your interview. I encourage you to do a visit early in the admissions cycle so you can incorporate what you observe/learn into your application. Tuck positions itself as a safe space in which to prepare to go out and tackle the world. Don’t be afraid to ‘expose’ yourself as you share your story. I suspect that having overcome some challenges has set …
