    Hello Mr. Tesla Intern! Krista Nannery from mbaMission here!
    If there’s one thing I know that GSB likes — it’s a great GPA. And you’ve got that! For their deferred program, they also tend to like engineering-y people and of course, there’s the Tesla factor. So I think you have a really good shot at deferred programs with this combination BUT….GSB and HBS are tougher than tough. So maybe your odds are better than most people, but because we’re specifically talking about these two schools, your odds are still low. Can I encourage you to add any other deferred programs to your list? (MIT Sloan perhaps?) I’d love for you to maximize your chances!
    I wish you all the best in this competitive process. GOOD …

Your consulting experience pre-MBA will help your post-MBA goal of MBB. For your essays, you will want to really highlight the leadership you were able to show and what you learned through your internship experiences. Also, can you talk about your …
