Candidate:

Mr. Social Entrepreneur

About Me:

I became an education entrepreneur a few months before graduation in 2011. I ran the startup for 8+ years. Post shutting my startup in March 2019, I joined a development sector organization focused on enabling entrepreneurship across India in senior mgmt. I will have 10 years of work experience by the time I land up in the US if I get an admit.

Big Life Wins:

As the founder of my education startup, I led the startup to a scale of over 140,000 enrolments in 8 years. In 2018-19, we had 46,000 enrolments in our programs. Raised USD275k+ from US & Indian VC. In my current work, I lead efforts on building an entrepreneurial ecosystem in two diverse states in India working closely with govt and other stakeholders.

    Hi Mr. Social Entrepreneur, Kristen from MBA Prep School here. It sounds like you have a passion for social good, evidenced by your work in education and development. I’m also impressed by your start-up momentum right out of undergrad. While I’m not sure what the breakdown was for your GRE, your overall score is right on target. A few concerns do jump out to me about your profile: your GPA is far below the average for the programs you are considering and your work experience exceeds the average. You’ll need to emphasize other strengths to overcome the GPA (perhaps there was an extenuating circumstance you can explain in an optional essay) and clarify why you need an MBA now to accomplish your goals. Your career …
