Mr. South Asian Entrepreneur

About Me:

Born and raised in South Asia. Went to MIT for undergrad. I worked at an MBB for the past three years and also ran a medical startup in parallel (that was able to raise a seed round recently as well as get FDA approval). Got promoted to the post-MBA role at MBB 6 months ago and mostly focus in digital and healthcare.


Undergrad School: MIT

Undergrad Major: Mechanical Engineering

GPA: 5.0/5.0

GRE: 333

Age: 25,  Ethnicity: Asian or Indian

Extracurriculars: Founder of medical device startup with recent successful seed round

Work History:

Title: Consultant

Industry: Consulting

Company: Top Firm

Length of Employment: 2 yrs, 7 mos

Big Life Wins:

– Coming from a middle-class background, I had to support myself through college.
– Securing FDA approval for our medical device is the biggest validation of my work that I have ever received.

Post MBA Goal:

I want to use my MBA years to explore other entrepreneurial ideas fully so that I can either jump into entrepreneurship directly after my MBA or work in VC for a few years before making the shift.


Target School: Harvard

Status: Open

    For HBS (which gets extremely strong applications every year and has the unenviable task of choosing who makes the cut) the key to maximizing your chances will be application execution. In particular, …
