  • Sandy Kreisberg, The HBS Guru | Odds Assessment: 10%

    Well, lots to like, including URM guy with two years experience at “top firm” and now nine months at a start up with what seems like real track record in Healthcare. Your write up could be more clear about what companies you work for actually do, too much of your descriptions are generic and jargony.
    Also, as I often say, HBS will blink once, but not often twice, and that is what you are asking them to do by blinking at both low grades and low GRE. There are just a lot of URMs with better stats and similar work ex, so HBS may prefer those guys.

    You also say, in addition to HBS that you are “Considering: Wharton, Columbia, MIT …

  • mbaMission | Odds Assessment: 10%

    Hi, it’s Nisha with mbaMission. First of all, I love your professional passion – the question of how data and technology can be harnessed to widen access to healthcare indeed is a very important one, and it seems like it’s led you to make meaningful impact in your career thus far. You’ve also got intriguing personal interests, and business schools like multidimensional individuals.

    HBS, along with the other schools you’ve listed, is intensely competitive, and your GPA and GRE are below the average. I definitely recommend retaking the GRE and aiming for mid-160s on each side. Additionally, you’ll want to: make sure you fully communicate your professional and personal achievements in your resume/application (emphasizing leadership), clarify your goals (what type of roles …

  • Stratus Admissions Counseling | Odds Assessment: 5%

    Mr. Public Health – Thanks for posting your profile. Susan Cera here from Stratus.

    Over the past few years I’ve worked with a number of clients with background and/or goals in the healthcare space. I like your commitment to public health and developing the skills to be more impactful.

    I’m giving you 5% chance at HBS because I think your stats are too low to be overcome by your story. I suggest that you broaden your list of schools beyond top 10 programs to those that have great strength in the healthcare space: Duke Fuqua – Health Sector Management concentration, Michigan Ross – great resources and now scholarship for healthcare, UCLA, WashU Olin, Vanderbilt Owen.

    Wishing you the best on your application journey!

    You have less than 5% chance at any of the M7s. Low GPA, Low GRE, and an unclear goal. If you don’t retake and score significantly higher, consider looking at a T-30.
