Mr. Rural Ed To International Business

About Me:

I taught 8th Grade English for two years in rural North Carolina, then spent two years at the U.S. Department of Education in higher education policy. I am matriculating at the School of Advanced International Studies at Johns Hopkins this Fall, with the hope of obtaining a dual degree with one of their MBA partner programs the following year.

I’m not sure if what I’m saying comes off as too vague, but I’d love to understand more of what could be improved in my profile. As a dual-degree seeker, I’m a somewhat unorthodox MBA watch profile, and I’m not sure if that inhibits my profile’s overall assessment worth. I’m hoping not, so I thought I’d see what people here think could happen.
