    3.8/750 IB Guy, non-URM (not an underrepresented minority, I am assuming), and nothing else super powerful is something of a lottery at Harvard and Stanford. Wharton may go for the stats alone. A lot of this will turn on what adcoms think of your current employer — Is it a feeder firm, etc.? Basically you are competing with other internet banking applicants, so that accounts for the odds, along with other things like what the adcom thinks of your school vs. others. I am not sure when you plan to apply, but most folks who start from your industry apply to H/S/W after 3+ years, which means they also have 2nd job, and the selectivity of that job is another hidden factor …

    Hello Mr. RIPKobe, Krista Nannery from mbaMission here.
    While I think the form collects when you plan to apply to b-school, unfortunately we don’t have that information here to go off of so I’m going to assume you mean now, hence the low odds.

    I’m glad you have that GMAT out of the way though! And what a great score too. If you were to do two years in IB and two years in PE and apply with that combination of experience, I …

    Awesome job in school and on your standardized test score. Beyond developing a business school story, I would consider solidifying your firm foundation by thinking about what outside of school / work leadership you can demonstrate. Schools want to see a record of success (which you have) and a record of initiative-taking and leadership (beyond being an organizational member).

    Good grades, but 1 year at a boutique IB won’t get you to Harvard. Creat more of a story around the business you want to create, take steps towards building it outside work (hard with IB hours I know). Get involved in some current extra curricular
