    You sound like a Kellogg guy. Your deep concern about community and your desire to contribute to the MBA community through volunteering and organizing on-campus clubs is a very big plus at Kellogg. The fact that you are a nontraditional MBA applicant from the government sector is also a plus. While Kellogg does not disclose GRE scores and your current score converts to the equivalent of a 650 GMAT, well below the latest class average at Kellogg of 730, that could be a problem. But I sense that your story will overcome that, particularly because you are submitting a GRE and not a GMAT. The school’s acceptance rate is about 26% these days and I would think your odds are nearly twice that for the …

    Hi Mr. Paper Pilot—This is Donna Bauman from Stratus Admissions weighing in on your candidacy. On the plus side, you have a strong GPA in the Kellogg strike zone, demonstrate loyalty if you’ve been working at the same firm for 6 years and you present as someone who values community and collaboration—and those attributes are particularly valued at Kellogg. However, there are a few challenges that I see. First after 6 years of working I’d expect to see a title beyond project coordinator. Perhaps this title does not fully capture the scope of your responsibilities so be sure to capture your specific impact and results on your resume as part of your application. If you have been promoted in your current company be sure to …

    Your professional profile is quite modest, especially the “Coordinator” title, after 6 years of work experience. While the government sector doesn’t feature lofty titles, “Coordinator” implies the absence of leadership or strategic duties. What’s your quantified impact on the job? Your undergrad academic profile is respectable with a good GPA as a Finance major. Your GRE is okay but not impressive — why not try again and knock it out of the park? Your non-work activities are good but “committee member” roles don’t shout leadership. Step up and show your initiative in the community to help counter a soft professional profile.
