Candidate:

Mr. Student Product Manager

About Me:

I am someone who is passionate about the high tech and business worlds, and has the experiences to seamlessly transition between the two – and will continue to do so as a Product Manager. I’ve worked on cutting-edge technology (quantum computing, biosensors, etc) and simultaneously managed a 100 person $1M nonprofit, all while in college.

Details:

Undergrad School: H/Y/P

Undergrad Major: Electrical Engineering

GPA: 3.4

GMAT: 760

Age: 21,  Ethnicity: Asian or Indian

Extracurriculars: President of University's largest student organization / nonprofit, Member of South Asian Dance Team, Treasurer of the Institute for Electrical Engineers (IEEE) Student Chapter

Work History:

Title: Product Manager (Incoming Full-Time, Previously Summer Intern. Google/Facebook/Microsoft-type)

Industry: Technology

Company: Fortune 100 Top 10

Length of Employment: , 3 mos

Title: Engineering Intern

Industry: Technology

Company: Start-Up

Length of Employment: , 3 mos

Big Life Wins:

Financially rescued the student organization I led — we went from $200K under budget the previous year to nearly $800K in revenue my year. My senior thesis, focused on machine learning applications on security, is part of a co-authored paper being submitted to IEEE. In my last summer, I designed a feature and led a full-time software developer to write the code that is now being deployed to many of the company’s enterprise partners. My last 3 terms have averaged ~3.7, so I have a rising GPA with my more advanced classes.

Post MBA Goal:

I want to be a future leader in technology. Short term, this likely means leading in product and strategy. Long term, I want to be the CEO of a major tech organization — someone who can create a product that is inherently good for society and transcends beyond what modern computing is capable of. I think an MBA will help me find the strategic footing and community to make that possible.

Schools:

Target School: Harvard

Status: Open

Considering: Stanford GSB, Wharton, Columbia, Chicago Booth

    Hi, Mr. Student Product Manager, this is Julie-Anne Heafey from mbaMission. You are an impressive candidate, with a real portfolio of accomplishments. Kudos on everything you’ve achieved! I think what you might want to keep in mind is that the admissions committee often looks at 2+2 applicants through the lens of: why give this person the admit now vs. later? What will gaining this early admission either help the program gain in the future (by attracting someone who might not be inclined to reapply later), and/or help YOU accomplish now (by helping you reach greater heights in the interim)? That’s what I’d be looking to answer if I were you. Remember, it’s not a referendum on your success –I’m sure …

    Hi Mr. Student Product Manager, this is Melisa from Stratus Admissions. I am going to guess based on what you have here that you are looking at a deferred MBA program. And that 760 is going to be a nice entry point. I’m also glad to hear that your GPA is on an upward trajectory. You’ll want to explain that in an optional essay. Use your involvement in the non-profit and IEEE to show your leadership experience. As a deferred candidate, what is important is to explain how and MBA is the right step for you – and why. Through your story – you will need to show your uniqueness – your story of turning around the non-profit could be a win here. Talk …
