  • John A. Byrne, P&Q Founder & Editor-In-Chief | Odds Assessment: 40%

    First off, congrats on your target schools. Given your GPA and GMAT scores along with your experience at what is probably a firm that many in MBA admissions probably don’t know, you’ve selected a perfect range of schools to consider. Cornell may still be a reach but it is not a very big reach and Georgetown and UNC should be right on target unless you didn’t execute well on your application.

  • mbaMission | Odds Assessment: 50%

    Hi Mr. Sports Management! Kate Richardson, Senior Admissions Consultant here. Your candidate name hones in on something that will set you apart, because the sports management industry is not very highly represented among MBA applicants. With that said, I think if your role is mostly sales focused, you also need to make sure you can show strong analytical/quantitative skills — maybe the work is data driven or involves forecasting or budgeting, etc. — if so, make sure you call out those skills on your resume, because many admissions officers will have preconceived ideas about what a sales role entails. Thinking ahead, those skills are also important in order to break into consulting. In terms of your stats, as you probably know your GMAT is pretty …

  • Stratus Admissions Counseling | Odds Assessment: 40%

    Hello, it’s Lisa Cummings from Stratus Admissions. Love your top choice school, my alma mater the Johnson School. Go Big Red!

That will of course make you more competitive in the admissions process but it will also when you embark on the job search post MBA. Top consultants will ask for your undergrad and MBA GPAs as well as your GMAT scores. If you are able to achieve a high MBA GPA and bump up that GMAT you will be in better shape now and in the future when you are in the recruiting process. But first, you need …

  • The MBA Exchange | Odds Assessment: 50%

    Hi Ms. Sports Management: Emily here from The MBA Exchange. I think Cornell, Georgetown and Kenan-Flagler will like that you come from a different industry than many of their other applicants. You could bring a different perspective to their MBA classrooms. Your GPA and GMAT are in the range for these schools though not a slam dunk. I recommend thinking through your goals and articulating them in a more interesting way. Many people will want to move from industry into consulting so what opportunity do you see in the consulting field that might be a bit different than everyone else? I think you also want to talk about your long term goals in some kind of …
