    Hi Mr. NCAA to MBA! This is Kate Richardson, Senior Admissions Consultant. Whenever I work with college athletes, I have always found it to be a positive. It shows great teamwork and early leadership, and an ability to balance competing priorities. In your case, you combined that with engineering coursework, which is well known to be demanding. While your GPA is a bit below the average at Ross, it is a strong GPA for your major. Your GMAT is also a bit below the 720 average at Ross, so that makes it hard for me to put your chances above 50%, but I think you’ve got a strong shot given the strength of your current role. On a side note, if you do apply to …

  • Stratus Admissions Counseling | Odds Assessment: 20%

    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.

  • The MBA Exchange | Odds Assessment: 40%

    Hi there! It’s Stephanie Horn, Master Consultant with the MBA Exchange and recent Poets and Quants “Top 10 Admissions Consultants”. We have a lot in common — I went from a technical degree, to Kellogg, to McKinsey. This is a solid path to take. You have a good GPA in a tough major, and the fact that you completed this while competing as an NCAA athlete is something the admissions committees will respect. Your GMAT is a bit below the average for Ross/Kellogg/Booth, but I assume your quant percentage is strong. Your work experience also looks good. You will need to show that during your time at the big 3 auto manufacturer, you demonstrated strong leadership, were able to set a clear strategic vision, and …
