  • John A. Byrne, P&Q Founder & Editor-In-Chief | Odds Assessment: 5%

    Stanford likes lawyers but not when their undergraduate transcripts lead to a GPA of 2.3 from a non-feeder school to boot. Clearly, your record as a lawyer is strong and impressive. But at an MBA program which accepts only 7% of its candidates from an already self-selecting applicant pool, you are pretty much dead on arrival, especially with a GRE score that is 11 points below the class average. Given your selection of schools, I would make your first choice INSEAD, London or HEC Paris. Your odds are much better at those schools and an MBA from any one of those schools would allow you to fulfil your dreams.

    Stanford is a waste of time for you. GPA way too low to even be seriously considered.
