  • Odds Assessment: 40%

    Hi there! It’s Stephanie Horn, Master Consultant with the MBA Exchange and recent Poets and Quants “Top 10 Admissions Consultants”.

On a side note, if you do apply to …

    Hi Mr. NCAA to MBB—this is Donna Bauman, Senior MBA Admissions Counselor at Stratus Admissions—and first let me encourage you to refine deeper than just MBB. While you may end up at MBB—I can tell you as a former admissions officer there is nothing memorable or unique in this goal and you are missing an opportunity by taking the road most travelled. I love your engineering background and that you have manufacturing experience. And of course as a former college athlete you know the rich tradition of Michigan in athletics—in fact when I visited Ross a few summers ago as part of keeping current within my industry by attending the AIGAC conference (Association of International Graduate Admissions Consultants), the Michigan admissions staff took us to …
