Mr. Surgery to MBB

About Me:

I went to medical school expecting to be a surgeon. After 2 years of surgery rotations, I realized I wasn’t enjoying it enough to warrant the life sacrifices. I found consulting and realized the skill set used on a day-to-day basis is exactly what I enjoy doing, including constantly learning and creative problem solving.

    Really strong profile. Congratulations! Your big wins are super impressive: “My multiple innovations in surgery fields resulted in changes in practice style and patient care at an international level. I was promoted at my consulting role unusually quick due to good performance.” And obviously the stats are solid, too, with a 750 GMAT, even though the GPA of 3.4 is a bit low but it really doesn’t matter given your MD degree and success in the field and transition into consulting. You would be a perfect MBB candidate as well. I get while you want to go for your MBA, but some would say you could transition to MBB now without the MBA. You’re such a strong candidate, lacking only basic business knowledge that an …

    Hello Mr. Surgery to MBB! Krista Nannery from mbaMission here.
    Your multiple innovations in the field of surgery are intriguing and unique and will help you standout during this competitive process. That MD will too! My top top for you is to please consider Wharton HCM! I think they will really like what you bring to the table. (Talk to current students in the HCM program about what you should do before you apply to get on the program’s radar.)
    Given that you are are already a consultant, the other thing I want you to do is dig deep and consider what will be different about post-MBA you? What is stopping you from joining MBB today? Make this skills-based please, not school-based. What are the specific …

    Surgery to MBB, Lisa Cummings here of Stratus Admissions, formerly of the Sloan Adcomm. You have a strong profile. Just a glance at the list of candidates on this site shows that it is no longer unusual for doctors to apply to medical school. but you will still bring some unique qualities to the pool. I’d like a little clarity on your research, was that part of your residency? Either way, it seems that you were really successful there, I’d like to hear more about this. Sloan love innovators so be sure to provide details. Also, the fact that you have already been promoted as a consultant is a terrific sign, any leadership you can highlight? You will want to flesh out …

    Mr. (Dr?) Surgery, Lisa Cummings here. What an interesting profile. You definitely are within the range of your target schools, assuming your solid track record continued in med school. I do need a little help with the years of experience. Were those 5 years of research during residency? Fear not, schools do count that as work experience because it really is work, I am just trying to fit the pieces together. In my many years as an accomm at Sloan, I read a lot of files from docs who left the medical practice either during or right after training, for a variety of reasons so your profile, while not common, is not unheard of. That's a good thing. Post MBA do you want to do ...
