Mr. U.S. Senate Policy Advisor To Business Mogul

About Me:

Started work at a Big 4 firm after graduate school in consulting on government/policy affairs. After expressing my concern to my elected US Republican Congressman on the lack of emphasis on cybersecurity in relation to international affairs, was offered a job as their Junior Policy Advisor on International Affairs and Cybersecurity.

Stanford, Harvard, MIT, or Bust… I can try to get my GMAT score up but unsure of what score I need to get to make up for my lower GPAs. I am not a great student, but excel with debating, organizing and efficiency. Strong Diplomat-like skills.

  • Emma Bond, Fortuna Admissions | Odds Assessment: 15%

    So, the good – I like that your proactive approach to your Congressman got you a shift out of your Big 4 role to a really interesting and relevant role in cybersecurity and international affairs. That’s not a job title that crosses admissions desks every day, especially as you’re working for the U.S. Senate. I’m unsurprised by your debating and diplomacy skills and it sounds like you’re a pro at selling yourself and would do well at interview. The question is whether or not you can get there. You’re targeting some of the toughest M7 schools and your target GPA is substantially lower than their averages – Stanford’s, for example, is a high 3.8. Do you have a good reason for that lower grade? Some …

    I place odds relatively low with the current application strategy – 5% – mostly because of poor strategic positioning given the raw stats associated with your candidacy. Your MBB goals are going to be difficult given your stats. For an over-represented minority, MBB recruiting at GSB is going to be looking for GMATs >730 and they are also going to be looking at GPAs.

Given that your undergraduate GPA is low, you may also have a lower MBA GPA given these factors (that matters less at schools with grade …
