    Hi Mr. Record Label,
    Thanks for posting your profile. This is Debbie Choy, Senior Consultant at mbaMission. I am intrigued by your industry focus in the entertainment sector. In my 8 years of working with candidates, I don’t see many coming from the media & entertainment industry. I agree with you that an MBA will certainly help you reach your long-term goals of becoming a media business development or product executive. I’m impressed that you already have various internships at top firms under your belt. That said, your GMAT score is a shade below that average at Columbia. If possible, consider retaking it to make your profile even more competitive. Also, do you have any opportunity to take on leadership roles at the student clubs you’re …

    Hi, it’s Jennifer Jackson from Stratus Admissions. I love that you’re interested in such a different industry — that will make you stand out. These deferred admissions programs are hyper-focused on stats because they want to lock in the “best” applicants early. Yours are solid but not outstanding. The fact that you’re Native American is very much in your favor since it’s definitely an under-represented group. What I don’t see is the job that you have after you graduate and before the MBA. Schools want to know what you’re doing for the next 2-4 years, and what skills you’ll gain and how they’ll set you up to meet your post-MBA and your LT goals. Good luck!
