    Hi Mr. Venture Lawyer! This is Kate Richardson, Senior Admissions Consultant.

    Hi Mr. Venture Lawyer—this is Donna Bauman with Stratus Admissions and I am happy to weigh in on your profile. First—seeing you played basketball reminds me that I miss sports!

You will need something to help your story come alive for GSB—what matters most to you? How does that show through in your work and life?

However, because my odds assessments no longer are shared on this website, I will keep these concerns to myself.
