  • John A. Byrne, P&Q Founder & Editor-In-Chief | Odds Assessment: 35%

    Your goal lines up with your desire to get your MBA at Bocconi. But I am wary of any strategy that places all your eggs in one basket, especially when your GMAT score is below the school’s class average of 665. You appear to have solid experience in the manufacturing sector for a global company and your extras make me think of you as a well rounded individual. My advice: Retake the GMAT and try to get into the 680 to 690 territory and apply to a few more schools. I would put on my list HEC Paris and IESE Business School in Barcelona. In other words, hedge your bets. At age 32, you need to do this now–not later.

    Ciao Mr. POS, Krista Nannery here from mbaMission.
    I’m going to agree with Mr. Byrne here on a few points. I am not a huge fan of one-school strategies — they’re very risky — so if you go for a one-school strategy, one way of increasing your chances is making sure your stats compare favorably with the school averages. I know it may seem like “only 15 points” and you may wonder if that makes a difference, but it really can.
    I’m also intrigued by the career switch to luxury fashion. Make sure the “why” is clear here and there’s a connection between your past experience and what you bring to the table and what you want to do for the Fendis and Pradas of the world. …
