  • John A. Byrne, P&Q Founder & Editor-In-Chief | Odds Assessment: 5%

    On what you’ve submited here, you are clearly an impressive guy. The speculation is that more than 2,000 students compete for the 50 or so Bose Scholar spots. Your jumbo GMAT score and your on-the-mark GPA make you a serious candidate for an elite MBA. But you are also facing considerable competition as an Indian male engineer. Playing basketball and the piano are great hobbies but they aren’t going to help you at Stanford. The school is looking for extras that show you care about others and are willing to give of yourself to them. The school is also looking for evidence of leadership potential and I just don’t see that in the spare description of your candidacy here. And while BITS Pilani is a …

    Hi Mr. S.N. Bose Scholar! This is Kate Richardson, Senior Admissions Consultant weighing in on your profile. Your profile shows confidence but is light on details — what makes you an amazing leader? What are the exceptional achievements that have mattered most to you? And importantly, how do you need to improve as a leader through an MBA program? You must show deep reflection on questions like these, and compelling answers to them, especially in GSB’s What Matters Most and Why MBA essays. I’d also want to dig in further into your post-MBA goals. Banking and PE are both very selective fields, and it’s typically hard to break into PE straight from the MBA without existing banking experience, or sometimes consulting experience. I’m also …

  • Stratus Admissions Counseling | Odds Assessment: 15%

    Hi, it’s Jennifer Jackson from Stratus Admissions. The first thing I’ll note is that you are definitely not lacking in confidence! When you are working on your applications, you’ll want to include a dose of humility, as adcoms might wonder how amazing a leader you can be already at age 25. And remember they want to teach you about leadership in MBA programs — if you profess not to need any additional skills why should they accept you? You clearly are very accomplished and have superior stats from a top university in India, but many many people applying to these top MBA programs can boast the same. Stats can never get you in somewhere (although when they’re too low they can keep you out), so …

  • The MBA Exchange | Odds Assessment: 10%

    This is Deepak Punwani from MBA Exchange. There is a lot to like about your profile – the BITS undergrad, the spectacular GMAT and your ambition in targeting GSB. But as others have mentioned, you may be underestimating the competition you will face both for H/S/B and also for the move into IB/PE. My suggestion to you therefore would be to build on your great stats by showing some evidence of leadership and “giving” back via your activities outside work. Show that you can work with others and for causes bigger than yourself. It need not be social or charitable work but it could very well be coaching a basketball team or spreading music among a cohort that has no access to practicing music. And …
