Mr. National Security Advisor

About Me:

Originally from the Midwest, I got involved in politics over 5 years ago. I worked for a Congressman and was given increasing responsibilities. I then advised his US Senate campaign on policy, and upon winning the race, became an advisor on national security issues in the Senate. I recently accepted a job at a major trade association doing International Relations.


Undergrad School: North Dakota State University

Undergrad Major: Finance

GPA: 3.3

GMAT: 670

Age: 26,  Ethnicity: White

Big Life Wins:

In my time in Congress, I had the privilege of working on really interesting projects, including the establishment of the US Space Force. Also led a division of a foreign policy non-profit – a great learning experience. And in my new job, I’ve traveled around the world meeting with foreign governments on energy policy/regulations.

Post MBA Goal:

Honestly, I need to do some introspection here. I know long-term I’d like to make a difference back in the Midwest, perhaps in a role helping companies expand operations/sales internationally.

    Hi Mr. National Security Advisor, Julie-Anne Heafey here with mbaMission. You seem to bring some really unique experiences to the table – not everyone can say they offer a midwest perspective and experience in the Senate working on the Space Force! So – your differentiation potential is strong, and I think you’d probably make an amazing list for Fuqua of “25 random things.” I also love that you’ve done CORe, which will help to show your academic readiness for business school, and somewhat offset your lower-than-average stats. Your GPA is a little low although within the 80% range of 3.1-3.87, and your GMAT is too but definitely closer than I’d prefer to the bottom of the limit (660-740). Any chance …

    Mr. National Security Advisor – Susan Cera, Director of MBA Admissions, here. Having spent 10 years working on admissions committee at Duke Fuqua, I know there is a lot they will like about your profile – international exposure, military experience. While the HBS CORe demonstrates that you have can do the work (I’m curious as to what grade you received), your 670 GMAT combined with a softer GPA will give admissions pause. A few suggestions to improve your chances beyond the 25% I noted: 1) Retake the GMAT and get to at least 700, 2) Clarify your goals then connect them with resources at Fuqua – both curriculum, clubs and activities you hope to participate in AND how you will contribute to the Fuqua …
